A Permanent Solution to Weight Loss - by Kim Knight

We live in a world that is becoming more and more visual. Images of female and male bodies of the perfect form bombard us wherever we go. There is no escape and there is no hope of ever looking like any of these images as most if not all the pictures are digitally perfected. The strange thing is that we know these images are altered, yet we choose to continue to compare ourselves to these images and to pictures of men and women who are younger than us. Why do we consciously set ourselves up for failure? Why are we so hard on ourselves and why do we keep on reaching for perfection whatever that may mean to us?

We have become more critical of our bodies than ever before. We have for the most part lost sight of our bodies as beautiful art forms and a gift that was given to us that provides us with life. Instead of criticizing and berating our bodies for perceived imperfections, shouldn’t we be celebrating our bodies, which in all shapes and forms are true examples of miracles.

The issues surrounding weight self-image and health are climbing to alarming proportions around the globe. It is a sign of the times and what many individuals and societies are not aware of is that these issues are merely symptoms of what is really wrong. In an effort to search for solutions individuals start trying different diets and this begins the yo-yo trend of dieting. These are not only expensive, soul-destroying and temporary solutions, but they are dangerous for our health and can and do affect one’s ability to lose weight permanently. It is common knowledge that many diets help on a temporary basis only. What diets do accomplish is they enslave you whether you are fat and thin by dictating how you should think and feel about food and what a healthy weight perspective is. Is this any way to live? How many more diets will we need to help us lose weight? How much more money will we spend on weight-loss solutions and how much more willpower must we try and muster to lose those extra kilos.

Most diets that I have tried or diet books that I have read and studied suggest that weight is a problem that needs to be solved. Through my experience, however, this could not be further from the truth. We cannot blame our weight for something we are doing to ourselves. Is it possible that it is not about willpower at all? How would you feel if I suggested that weight is not the problem, but rather it is our thinking, our self-image and self-esteem that have caused our distorted thinking about our bodies and our lives?

Keeping that in mind then what is the answer? I believe that we have to start living from inside of ourselves. We have to reach the thin mind inside despite what the outward appearances suggest – that we are fat – and start from there. If we start looking inside oursleves and stop to listen, it is possible that we can identify the reasons for our food addictions and weight issues and in so doing, find a permanent solution to losing weight.
