More from Steve #28:
Fat people are unaware of their beliefs and philosophies about dieting.
Fit people are hyper-aware of all of their beliefs and philosophies.
Fat people believe being fit is about finding the right diet. Fit people know if you want to change any behavior in your life the key is to go directly to the root of the problem, which are the beliefs and philosophies of the individual.
Fat people see dieting as drudgery that can only be tolerated for short periods of time. Fit people see dieting as a strategy for a lifetime to keep them healthy, looking good and feeling great.
Fat people feel as though they’re depriving themselves of their favorite foods. Fit people know they can eat their favorite foods as long as they’re at their ideal weight and the deviation is well planned.
Fat people believe exercise is an added burden in their life. Fit people see daily exercise as a mandatory habit for optimum physical and mental health and longevity.
The secret is to change your beliefs and philosophies one by one by upgrading the way you use the language with yourself and others.
It all begins with the way you think.
Critical Thinking Question: Are you really aware of your fundamental beliefs and philosophies that relate to health and fitness???
Action Step: Make a list of your five most deeply held beliefs about eating and exercise. Then ask yourself if they are helping or hurting you???
1. Dieting hurts.
2. Dieting is a punishment.
3. I’ll never, ever get to eat what I want until I am content with the amount.
4. Dieting is a life … sentence.
5. You have to diet coz … you did something wrong.
Geeeze, I didn’t always think these things. So, slowly but surely, I am changing back to the way I use to think … and that will change my weight back down, too.
I’m trying to watch a foreign film this morning in French. I can’t get the English captions to work.
Kinda like trying to lose weight while talkin’ badly to myself.
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
Coz … I want to be ME.
**Within this blog is my longwinded thoughts based on my reading and humble understanding of Steve Siebold’s Die Fat or Get Tough and years and years and years of searching for thinness and … self-peace.
