Transforming Your Weight Loss Journey

Mar 13, 2024

Weight loss is a multifaceted journey that goes beyond dieting and exercise. It involves a deeper understanding of the factors that contribute to weight gain and the development of a comprehensive plan to tackle these factors. This blog post will guide you through a holistic approach to weight loss that takes into account the metabolic, dietary, psychological, and collective factors contributing to weight gain. 

Understanding Weight Gain: The Causes

Knowing what contributes to weight gain is the first step to creating an effective weight loss plan. Here are the key factors:

Metabolic Level

Metabolic factors include insulin resistance, low thyroid function, food allergies, toxic overload due to poor diet and lifestyle, menopause, and the effects of certain medications such as hormone replacement, anti-depressants, and steroids.

Dietary & Lifestyle Level

Unhealthy dietary habits such as overconsumption of poor-quality carbs and underconsumption of essential fatty acids and proteins, can lead to weight gain but it's not the main contributor like we are told. Other lifestyle factors include eating rhythm, chronic dieting, excessive stress, poor sleep, and a toxic environment.

Personal/Psychological Level

Emotional and psychological factors such as stress, loneliness, resentment, depression, and feelings of shame or inadequacy can lead to overeating and weight gain. Similarly, issues like sexual wounding, grounding, and the burden of work or money can contribute to unhealthy eating habits.

Collective Level

Collective factors include genetics, cultural norms, and societal pressures. For instance, the addiction to youth and speed, loss of natural connections, and a culture that often promotes unhealthy eating habits can all contribute to weight gain.

Soul Level

At a deeper level, agreeing to earth laws, embracing femininity or masculinity, claiming purpose, agreeing to the spiritual journey, and embracing sexuality can all play a role in weight management.

Excess Weight: What Does it Mean?

Excess weight is not just about appearance. It can be an indication of stored energy, dormant life force, or unprocessed emotions. It can also be a sign of not digesting past experiences. However, it's important to note that excess weight could also be perfect for your health and metabolism.

Own Your Weight

To effectively lose weight, you must first own it. Accept yourself as a valuable and worthy person in the body you have today. Remove blame and judgment and acknowledge what is, even if you don't necessarily like it.

Changing Your Blueprint

A key part of the weight loss journey is changing your blueprint. This involves understanding the cause of your weight gain and identifying areas that need more exploration. It's also about embracing the concept of epigenetics, which suggests that you can turn genes on or off through lifestyle, thoughts, beliefs, and programming. Ask yourself, do you feel thin on the inside? What do you need to do to feel like a thin person besides look thin?

The Facts

It's a fact that 98-99% of people who lose weight on a diet gain it back within 1-2 years. The 1-2% that keep it off report a significant change in their story, inner world or outer world. This could be a positive life shift that has nothing to do with weight such as a new job, a move to a new place, or a change in marital status.

The "Nont-Weight Strugglers" Mindset

There is a different mindset when it comes to weight for those who don't struggle. They aren't afraid of weight gain, they believe they have a fast metabolism, and they don't give much thought to weight. They aren't worried about food or exercise, and they feel worthy and deserving to be thin. This mindset is something that can be adopted by anyone on their weight loss journey.

Your Blueprint

Your weight is part of your programming or blueprint. It exists in your mind first. The minute the fear of weight gain is realized, the "blueprint" is activated. Allow your mindset to be that of someone who doesn't struggle with weight.

Putting it into Action

Start by writing out your beliefs about thin people and your weight, food, and exercise. Identify the beliefs you want to change and start working on transforming your mindset. Remember, it's possible to live in your ideal body. You just have to stay connected to your body.
