Why is it good to put your weight-loss problems, your weight issues, into words, especially if you’ve never done this to the fullest?
When you put something fully into words, you get to know it much better. To use words is to formulate what you might have left more formless and unformulated previously. If this is the case, using words is an important step for you to take. It may presage other forms of changing yourself, including the kind of changes in outlook needed for losing excess weight.
At first, the words you use to describe your weight issues may seem only to lead to little changes. Deeper changes in yourself, which is what makes for successful weight loss, takes longer, of course.
The benefit of developing these little changes in understanding is that you’ve already started to build a foundation for further change. Greater understanding familiarizes you with the process of change itself. This is a big step, because it’s the the process of changing yourself like this that opens up new possibilities for treating you and your eating behavior differently.
