“Take a number please” (No Don’t)

So many people are looking at weight from a physical perspective. The issue of weight has to do with the underlying reality behind the weight “imbalance” in our society. The use of food is really a by-product of what is going on inside of us. In other words, it’s about what is going on inside (such as our habits and emotions), not what’s on the outside. If a person only looks at weight from the standpoint of food, they are not getting to the root of their real problem, and the excess weight will most likely return.

In addition, losing weight from the outside in is very mechanical. When it comes to counting calories and calculating, it’s all about the numbers. However, people are not made of numbers. They have emotions, hearts and souls. And, it’s time to stop searching out “there” — calories, the scale, diet foods or gimmicks, because the answer to the weight issue cannot be found outside of ourselves.
