You think you have weight issues? Tell me, are you obese? Has the blood pressure in your body got so high that you think you can not live long? Do you have serious medical problems? No. Then I am sorry dear but I don’t think you have weight issues.
Constantly checking the net for weight loss measures, not eating your favourite recipe because you might gain weight, constantly checking your belly in the mirror, tagging yourself as weak because of your weight- they can only be a part of an image issue. The sad thing is- you can reduce your weight and remove your weight issues but image issues persist even after that. It is a very sad plight and I can say so because I have one (by self-diagnosis).
So today I am going to make an amazing revelation. You and your existence does not revolve around your weight and any other physical disabilities. If a blind man could climb Mount Everest, then you can also live your life quiet happily. Your success does not depend on your weight. Your chances of becoming a dancer are not hindered by your weight. You can be fat and amazing. You can be smart, flexible, springy. You are no cartoon character.
Our image issues on weight are formed not only by the constant teasing by our companions and family but also our insecurities. We seriously need better things to anchor our confidence on. Lose your weight by all means, stay healthy, but don’t let your weight affect your confidence. Because we are not our bodies, our bodies are not us.
