Women who need to lose weight, and people in general, are complicated. Weighing too much doesn’t just happen because you don’t want it to. You might not want to be overweight, but you also want to overeat and you put up with suffering the consequences of being so heavy despite all the kicking and screaming about how you don’t want to be such a fatty.
Therefore, you have to raise your awareness of what you haven’t faced, what you are not able to face, what you don’t want to face within yourself. You will have to raise your awareness of what you find so you can look at these parts, realize they are there, examine them carefully, and in doing so have a better chance of correcting them. You don’t just set up a behavioral routine of pushing yourself away from the table as a way of sticking to a diet. You need to see what it is within you that makes losing weight so difficult, and you can push yourself toward that; expose what’s outside of your awareness, approach it, become conscious of it, and not avoid it.
