Close Kept Secrets to Weight Loss Lesson #1
I am so grateful that you’re taking steps to take control of your life. You will be amazed when we work together how much you’ll uncover about yourself. You’ll understand how your thoughts have contributed to your being overweight and you will take daily steps to put together a new plan of action for yourself. I imagine that you are tired of living like this and want some new, something better for yourself. I am here to help you and I know you can do it!
As an integrative body therapist, I work with energy and thought processes. With this in mind, we’re going to begin this lesson with a discussion on energy and how you attract excess weight.
Everything is made up of energy. The couch you’re sitting on, table, even money is made up of energy. Our bodies are nothing but pure energy. Since everything is made up of energy, these things are affected by Natural Laws of Universe. These Laws are designed to manifest whatever we put our thoughts on. In simple terms, whatever you put your mind on, is what you’re going to get.
We’re going to look at one of Natural Laws—the Law of Attraction. How does this apply to being overweight? When you hold negative thoughts in your body, symptoms appear based on those thoughts. In your case, you hold excess weight. You may be experiencing other symptoms as well, but your main focus right now is your weight. You hold negative thoughts in your body and this attracts excess weight. According to Louise Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life, outlines weight issues in her book and anger is driving force underneath weight. It can be anything from anger at being denied love, anger at parents or anger at one specific parent—often father. In my case, I was angry at both parents, but more so my father.
Trials and Tribulations of a fitness trainerWritten by Deborah Caruana RN, MES, CPT
Feeling like NASA rover, Spirit, I started January triumphant. Ah, that quest for perfection, that ever burning flame that drives us onward to test perimeters of our well being/existence. Especially after lolling in holiday bliss. I was energized and fortified, with a couple of extra pounds to propel me with extra fire power. Running in mountains of our upstate home, coming home and working out religiously and tending to perfect diet another example of perfect technical prowess. The first week of work back in city routine went spectacularly. Until like rover abruptly malfunctioning, a glitch? I developed laryngitis. I knew I hadn’t been taking my vitamins and not enough vegetables over holidays and was now compensating with a strict regime to stave off dreaded cold or flu signs flashing ahead. The immune system was showing weakness, I stopped exercise to fortify immunity. A week later, feeling better, my voice sounding less like broken violin strings, I dashed ahead. A fantastic workout, never better, I’m back, “Victor” I think! The boom lowered later that night while trying to get up for dinner … I couldn’t. The next day, like rover I was put to sleep until malfunction was corrected. Well there goes 2 perfectly good weeks of dreams and aspirations! Week 3 I was sure I would redeem myself until I realized a bronchial infection kicked in and I’m down for count for another week. Good intentions pave road to……trying to hone in on root of problem.
