That’s when the weight of the world weighs so heavy on your shoulders that the only thing that makes you feel better is to eat. You give in to your cravings and you just gorge yourself on so much food.
I know it’s a problem for a lot of people. Because let’s face it. You’re not going to find yourself 40 or 50 kilos overweight if you’re not binge eating to some extent. And usually, there’s an emotional issue that’s causing you to binge.
So what does it all mean for you if you want to break that cycle and start losing weight?
It’s all about accepting your own vulnerability and digging deeper into yourself. You’re looking for your pain point.
That’s the one bit of darkness inside that’s causing you to go and medicate yourself with food, drink, or whatever addiction you might have.
You have to confront that pain point. If you don’t, everything else you do is just a Band-Aid over a gaping wound. It covers it up for a little while but it doesn’t solve the problem.
That’s why so many people yo-yo on their diets. The diet isn’t the solution, even if it helps you lose a bit of weight at first. If you don’t confront your pain point before you start making those changes, it’s almost impossible to maintain them.
When that pain point sparks up again, it’s going to hit you hard. The diet won’t matter anymore and you end up just doing what you always did.
That means the weight’s going to come back.
Finding your pain point isn’t an easy task.
That’s not because it’s super hard to find. It’s because a lot of us don’t want to admit to feeling the pain in the first place. We’re scared of feeling vulnerable, which means we never search ourselves as deeply as we need to.
That’s a feeling that you need to overcome so that you can find your pain point and own it.
You have to break through before you can achieve what you want.
I believe in you.
