I think my favorite statement in this episode is 21st century weight loss is about inner alignment because when you are aligned internally the Universe bows to your intent.
Here are my answers to the questions.
1. What unwanted behaviors do you have?
I eat unhealthy foods.
I eat until I am sick.
I eat when I am bored.
Instead of planning my meals, I wait until I'm hungry to decide what to eat.
I am lazy when it comes to exercise.
I vegetate in front of the TV too much; in fact, I just watch TV too much period.
I procrastinate, and then when I am up against a deadline I just give up.
2. What symptoms do you have?
I am about 80 pounds overweight.
I feel tired and sluggish all the time.
My back and joints hurt and ache.
I get breathless from just a little activity.
I am not flexible, I can't sit cross-legged in the floor anymore, and I can't get up easily from the floor.
I don't like the way I look and the clothes I buy to hide my body.
I have high cholesterol and blood pressure, and the high blood pressure aggravates my irregular heartbeat.
3. What are the consequences of those behaviors and symptoms?
I don't feel good.
I don't have the energy I need to do everything I want to do, including writing, stitching, and drawing.
I don't feel self-confident, so I'm uncomfortable around people.
I sabatouge myself all the time because I feel unworthy of the effort it takes to change.
4. What other people are affected by your problem? How are they affected?
My husband, because I am grumpy and unlovable, so I shy away from intimacy, both physical and emotional.
My work and my art, because I don't have the energy to devote to excelling at each one.
My dogs, because they deserve to be more active and go on walks every day.
I must confess, I was a little surprised at some of the answers that came in to my mind. I didn't like them, and I started to not post them. But you guys are my team, so I wanted to be honest with you, and that made me be honest with myself.
I'm looking forward to seeing your answers.
