Are You Feeling Spooked by Weight Loss?
Do you have your Halloween costume picked out? We all look forward to a fun and frightening night. It’s always filled with both laughs and frights – for both children and adults.
Having a focus on weight loss and wellness, we tend to view Halloween as the kick-off to an interesting and, sometimes, intense string of challenges for those working to lose weight.
Think about it: It comes October 31. Then we are into November and start thinking about Thanksgiving. Then the December Holidays … and New Year’s … then the Super Bowl … then Valentine’s Day, etc. etc. etc. In America, all of these have become closely linked with getting together with friends and loved ones … and eating! Of course, we all know that much of that eating is not the healthiest – and it’s a tradition to eat A LOT!
No doubt, many people struggle and end up frustrated, less healthy and certainly less happy on the other side of this string of special days. It doesn’t have to be this way. You can still make progress through these challenging months. Let’s go back and share a brief story that we’ve shared before.
A father was beginning to groom his young son to be a hunter. As may be expected, the boy was a bit apprehensive to make those hikes through the dark woods in the early morning hours. If you hunt, camp or maybe work in the early morning hours, you know that time of day can be quite eerie at times.
The father could tell how his son was feeling, and one day he asked him, “Son, are you afraid of the dark?”
The boy’s response was full of wisdom. He said, “No, Daddy. It’s not the dark I’m afraid of. It’s what MIGHT be in it!”
We have come to realize is that the anxiety, fear and overwhelm associated with weight loss is often much the same. It’s not the result people “fear”. They want that! Rather, it’s the process they are afraid of. Many simply don’t know some of the latest information, strategies, research and tactics for weight loss and long-term control. Because they have perhaps failed on numerous attempts or experienced the challenge of change in the past, may people fear what might be involved.
Just like the young boy said he’s afraid of what MIGHT be in the dark, many people assume or buy into the belief that weight loss MIGHT be too difficult for them. They fear they MIGHT fail. The POSSIBILITY that they MIGHT not be fully equipped to properly make the weight loss journey scares them. The feeling that they MAY feel all alone as they make that journey is daunting at times.
All of this combined with not being sure of what MIGHT come up makes many people feel “in the dark” when it comes to weight loss.
Fear and overwhelm become the dominant thoughts … and these things stop many people from even trying a proven weight loss program. We understand how paralyzing fear and these feelings can be. This drives us to do what we do!
When you’re in the dark, what do you want or need? You need LIGHT! Don’t you? When we have light, we SEE that there isn’t REALLY anything in the dark to harm us. We really had nothing to be afraid of after all, did we?
