Is your backstory stopping you from losing weight? Backstories can do that. They wield a powerful influence over us. Some backstories make us avoid. Others lead to easily feeling abandoned. Some make us adapt ourselves to what others want so we don’t get the other person upset. There are backstories that help us cover up our feelings of inadequacy, sometimes going as far as making us feel superior, entitled, and special.
All women who try to lose weight have a backstory. It best if your backstory facilitates the weight loss process rather than hampering it. But when your backstory is the kind that interferes and makes weight loss difficult, you definitely have to address it.
