Weight Loss is a Loss

 

If you have £3.70 pick up Marie Claire and turn to page 180. 

Sarah Elizabeth Richards writes an excellent article in what she misses about being fat.

So often this is totally over looked yet something I always discuss with clients. Weight loss. LOSS. If you're using the word loss, you're losing something, someone. We deal with loss in psychotherapy. Loss of someone, of confidence of something. Why oh why isn't this discussed at slimming clubs, diet places and before bariatric surgery as a must. 

Many believe their problems will go along with their fat, or their weight.  Yet you are who you are right now. That's your identity. To lose who you are matters and needs exploring. Your issues come from within.  They were caused in relationship and can be healed in relationship.  Not by what you look like.  

There are physical, emotional and physiological implications in losing weight. Explore them.  Be ok. Be ok being you and then what you look like may or may not follow. Either way you'll be ok.
