Do you have a tough time talking about your weight? Have you ever talked about your weight with your significant other or with your physician?
What is it about weight that makes it so hard to talk about? There are all those personal issues that easily lead to feeling too vulnerable, like your self-esteem, guilt feelings, your self-image, your worry about what others think of you, etc.
Maybe it would help you open up about your weight if you started by confiding in yourself first. Does this seem like a funny idea? You could certainly talk to yourself about your weight, how you feel about weighing what you weigh, what you’d like to accomplish regarding your weight, and what you’ve been through with this weight issue of yours. Writing about your weight is another way to take a step toward talking with others about your weight. Writing about your feelings and experiences, as the research clearly shows, is also a way of gaining emotional relief.
