The role ‘Feelings’ play – in everything we do!

Hello!  I hope things have gone well since our last blog.

I was working with a client this week that had come to me with a Weight issue and when she walked in it was clear to see that she was really cross with herself.  She plonked herself down on the chair and immediately started telling me how annoyed she was that she knew exactly what she should have done but just didn’t feel like doing it.  She told me that no matter how much she tried she just couldn’t get her mind in the right place.  This is what we spoke about 2 blogs ago, wasn’t it?  Anyway, she went on saying she felt that time was slipping past and she was still not making progress.

I would like you to stop and consider exactly what she said.  She said she ‘just didn’t feel like doing it’.  She then said she ‘felt’ that time was slipping past.

I would now like you to consider some other things that generally happen in life.

  1. When you meet someone new, how do you know if you like them?
  2. Or, how do you know if there is something about them that you are not sure about?
  3. When you try on new shoes or an item of clothing, how do you know if you could wear them for a couple of hours?
  4. When you do a new task, how do you know if you like doing it or if you don’t?
  5. How do you know if the temperature is too hot or cold for you?

The answer to all these questions is related to how you feel.  Every decision we take is strongly influenced by how we feel about whatever it is.

For those of us who are overweight we know that we have eaten too much food and more than likely the wrong types of foods.  We also know that to reduce our weight we need to change what we eat and the quantity that we eat, and nearly every diet or weight loss programme will tackle this aspect of Weight Loss.

The problem is that you have eaten in response to a feeling and for everyone the cause of the feeling is different, but until we sort out what is causing the feeling, whenever we take our eye off the ball, or the diet we have decided to follow, the feeling will be there and we start to go back to the way we were before.

The PINNACLE of Weight Loss Programmes teaches you how to become aware of the feelings and you will then learn tips and strategies that will help you understand them and deal with them in an alternative way.

You will also have the opportunity to take things further and deal with the problem that is creating the feeling so you no longer have to be the slave of your feelings.  I guarantee that in our one to one session you will learn where these feelings originate, and I will also guarantee that they can be permanently dealt with in an easy and pain free way.

I look forward to hearing your questions and views.

Best wishes from Barbara.
