The weight loss industry is one of the largest in the world and takes in billions each year. This affects both men and women, and while sometimes it can be for health reasons, at other times it’s for aesthetic reasons.
People can lose weight, eat differently, exercise, taking supplements, medical procedures and by having hypnotherapy for example. And new ways and variations are continuously made available; as a way to stimulate interest and to entice people to buy what is available.
The Short Term
In the short term this could to a woman who has just had a baby and it wants to lose weight she has recently received. Or it might be a time when a man or women recently suffered loss and use food as a way to console themselves and gained unwanted weight in the process.
And in these cases, there will be people who can lose it pretty quickly as other people can not. It could also be that one will lose it quickly and then get it just as fast.
The Long Term
There will also be people who want to lose weight since they were young or years and no matter what these people do, they can not seem to lose it.
Then people can lose it pretty easily with the right support, no matter how long they have served for weight. And just as in the above example; they will be people who lose it and then restore it, in a very short time.
Regardless of where a person could have started from or what their reasons are, it is as if some people have an internal preset that will not change. This is shown when the weight is lost and then simply return to its previous level.
And this can create not only a physical challenge, but also mental and emotional challenges. To lose weight and then regain it or find it difficult to lose weight in the first place is going to test yourself solving.
This may seem like one is working against your body and what their body wants is completely different to what they want. Losing weight can be done and yet it is a real struggle to do it and just as much of a struggle to maintain weight loss.
And this is the focus of the conscious and unconscious mind. Will can a conscious mind and want something else unconscious mind can. When they are working together, just about anything can happen and when they do not; it will inevitably lead to struggle, strain and frustration.
Is it dangerous?
What unconscious effort will be interpreted as being dangerous and what it takes will be interpreted as a safe. Ego mind connects it safe with what is familiar.
As long as something is known, it will be interpreted as a safe. And it will not matter if this is causing one to suffer or struggle. These organizations are often formed when one is very young or limited stressful moments as an adult.
At this moment, the weight may be undesirable and yet it could be due to past associations is to keep it there. Weight is similar to the muscle, so that it can protect the body against real or perceived external stress.
If a person feels vulnerable in some way, to gain weight will make one to feel safe. As weight is then used as an alternative to self-limit.
By having goals, know where they begin and end, and where others begin and end. It is then possible to feel safe to be who one is and to know that a person has their own space.
So maybe when you were a child and it was not safe for them to be just. The early environment could have been dangerous, hostile, offensive and dangerous. And as one did not have the opportunity to develop healthy boundaries, the only possible option was to armor themselves with gaining weight.
So even if you are losing weight, the body keeps regaining order it from these first organizations were formed. If they were to lose it, it would retrigger these last memories of being completely vulnerable, have no control and be wide open to life.
There is an opinion that the person feels comfortable in who they are, their weight will come back to health points. These internal conflicts can lead to one becoming trapped in an endless cycle of diets, frustration and pain. What one eats is clearly important and as is the way one feels about food and their bodies.
On the surface, one can imagine how good life was, and how good it would feel to lose weight. But at a deeper level, it could call a lot of fear, and this fear is that causes one to sabotage they seek consciously.
This is something that can be treated with the help of a therapist, coach or healer. They can help one to go where they could not have gone after him.
