This week I have been working on a project that involves emotional eating. It is consuming a good deal of my computer time, so I am going to keep this morning’s entry short and sweet. If you are struggling with weight loss, emotional eating might be your problem. The only way to overcome this is to take the steps necessary to let go of who and what you are angry with. Perhaps there is someone or something that happened so long ago, you barely give thought to it or think you have gotten past it, but maybe you really haven’t. For your health, for your happiness, and for your weight control (which certainly impacts both health and happiness) try to make THIS the day you ask yourself what you are so mad about and then commit to letting it go. Design a mantra and be specific…something like “I am letting myself get over the hurt I felt when (fill in the blank with a person’s name) told me I could have done better at (fill in the blank).” By letting this go, I am also willing to release the weight I am holding on to.” Even if you think this is not what’s causing your weight problems, you may be surprised at the amazing effect letting go has on you. Get your head in the right place, and everything follows.
