Here you are all ready to do something about your weight. Only what you do will not be just about dieting and exercise. You are going to have to change the way you eat, and this is certainly going to cause you some stress, and definitely some distress too.
In fact, a good part of your weight gain may very well be due to the kind of eating you used to relieve your stress. So not only will you be feel stressed from a change in eating behavior, you also will be stressed because you won’t have your ‘favorite’ stress beater to turn to.
So here you are all ready to do something about your weight and you no longer want to rely on the tried-and-true stress reliever. You now have to face directly what stresses you and find good ways to cope better with the problems in your life. This is the awful truth about losing your unwanted weight. No more escape and avoidance through food. No more passive reliance on eating too much food or eating too many fattening foods.
As you can see, the process of weight loss has the potential of making you a healthier person in other important matters besides your weight.
