Right actions will bring lasting results but conversely working in the wrong area will only produce limited short term results and it will seem as though you are struggling against yourself.
At the physical level the challenge is often simple thermodynamics, people eat more than they utilize which in turn causes fat cells to swell. You can discover if this is your weakness by keeping an honest accurate log of what you eat and drink as well as a log of your activity. Evaluating these two logs will tell you quickly if you need to modify your intake habits or increase your activity level. The basic goal is simply reduce intake which can usually be done by eating low calorie or low fat items such as vegetables, fruits etc. in place of snacks or processed food. Also, up the water intake in place of any high calorie or rich liquid intake then last, increase walking or any other suitable safe exercise. Remember to give yourself time and loose weight gradually adjusting your eating and drinking to a lifestyle you enjoy and can keep over time. In adjusting your intake lower you should consider a broad general natural based vitamin supplement to insure good nutrient availability. If you choose to use a diet work with one close to your lifestyle so you can use a modified version later to maintain your desired weight. Be cautious with using diet drinks or supplements with complex chemicals to replace sugar or stimulate metabolism because those chemicals must be removed from your body by the Liver and Kidney systems. If you really like diet drinks and snacks simply minimize their use.
Organ weakness or dysfunction can cause the body to retain excess fluids giving it a large appearance. One night many years ago I was at my skilled facility and Dr. Lee, a pulse reading acupuncturist, was also in the building that night he read the pulses of a very large women. She told him she ate very little and still was unable to loose weight. He told her she had a weak kidney system and her weight was the result of excessive water held in and between the cells. He basically laid out a simple set of dietary restrictions avoiding the foods that would weaken the kidney and then told her how to meditate so her kidneys would get stronger over time. An acupuncture pulse reader can tell you which organ, if any, is weak and suggest lifestyle changes or herbs to correct the in-balance.
Stress eating can be a cause of being overweight. If you enjoy the correct weight and eating habits while on breaks or vacations then put weight on during work or stress periods you are a stress eater. You need to change how you respond to stress but until that time you might consider using the homeopathic compound Calmes or the herbs Skullcap and Chamomile. Skullcap is usually suggested for the more mental worrier but experiment until you discover which allows you to relax during stress periods. Again a capsule or cup of tea each day is safe and will help. If you can find low calorie food substitutes keep them convenient so you eat them first. In the end you need to loose the stress reaction so explore ways to relax and get back in control of your being.
Emotional trauma can cause an overweight condition. Many people have had an emotional moment where something happened, a comment said or an embarrassing experience and their reaction was so great as to produce a strong inner drive to not be desirable or attractive. The excess pounds become a defensive maneuver. These moments usually occur in youth but they can happen at any age. You can discover these experiences by mentally going back to the time when you first became over weight then while holding this idea ask yourself what was going on at that time. Most people will suddenly remember something that happened to or around them at that time. Ponder it and allow the emotions to flow then softly affirm to yourself your new direction. If it arises in your mind at any future time just reaffirm the new you. If this is a troubling memory consider using Back Flower Rescue Remedy to help you keep a positive attitude while you work through this experience.
Poor mental programming can be the cause of excessive weight. We learn a lot in our early years from our teachers, those who are around us during that time. There are situations where a child is told daily they will be just like their mother or father who is much bigger than they should be or that certain high fat or high calorie foods are good for them. This then becomes the program which in turn creates or attracts the reality. It is important to understand that this early learning sets in motion the situation in life today and changing how this is perceived alters how it impacts the body. Stay focused on foods you would enjoy that are leaner so you can enjoy eating but reduce your overall intake.
You can undo these experiences by using techniques that access and alter the Unconscious self concepts or beliefs such as self hypnosis, meditation, NLP or other qualified therapy. Although sometimes just talking to a friend or someone you trust will work. If no such person is around you consider writing it out as though you are talking to a trusted healer. As an alternative use a simple but powerful concept based upon the power of now. In your mind create a short list of how you wish to be. Several times a day in a place and time free of distractions think about of how good it would feel if this new self image and body came to you in a healthy and safe way. A few minutes each time is sufficient. Now stop thinking anything contrary to this line of thought. By sticking to your list and not energizing anything else you start denying or weakening the contrary ideas. At some point you will realize you have moved into your new being. Do not effort or strain but be consistent and you will achieve your goals in a way that adds to your mind and body.
