Are You Willing To Prove Yourself Wrong?

beliefs Sep 05, 2021

"Doesn't matter what I do, I can't lose weight."

"There's something wrong with me."

They then follow up with all the proof as to why this is. Their past failed dieting attempts, inability to exercise, slow metabolism, how everyone in their family is overweight and how they have little or no willpower.

It's all told to me in a way like it's the indisputable truth. 

But it's not.

If you also think this way about yourself, you are wrong.

I know it can be hard to hear that this isn't true when it so strongly feels like the truth. I know you're going to tell me how I don't understand what you've done to lose weight and everything you've tried. I know you can give me many, many examples of other people who have been unsuccessful in their attempts to lose weight. But none of this is evidence that proves you can't permanently lose weight yourself.

You can. You can lose weight and keep it off for good. It is possible.

No matter what anybody else has told you - including doctors. No matter what is happening with your hormones. No matter how much your mum or sister struggles with their weight. None of this means anything about your ability to stop overeating and be free of excess weight. None of it.

So would you be willing to prove yourself wrong?

Would you be willing to admit that what you've tried up until now just hasn't worked? In fact, it's actually added to the belief that somehow you don't have what it takes to live in a body that's at a comfortable and natural weight.

It can be hard to admit that we're wrong. Nobody likes being wrong.

But there's nothing wrong with you that makes it impossible to lose weight. What's wrong is believing what others say to you. Things like 'you're a big girl,' 'you'll always have to watch your weight.' They're wrong and it's wrong to believe them.

My client who was told 'you're a big girl' is just over 6 foot. That's tall, not big.

My other client who was told she'd always have to watch her weight is now at her natural weight and weighs less than she did when she got married.

It's not your weight you need to watch but your beliefs. And when you find a belief that's not working for you, be willing to prove it wrong.

After all, without a crystal ball how can any of us know what's going to happen in the future?

Are you willing to prove yourself wrong?
