Mind to Body Catch Up
« on: November 15, 2012, 12:18:59 PM »
Doug, in listening to your CD I remember you saying it took you a year to acknowledging that you had really lost the weight and it was off for good.  I was 157 and now 129 and I still see myself in the mirror as that 157 pound woman.  It is so true that it does take time to have it become a reality.  I think the problem is is no faith in yourself and still believing that one can't keep it off, so your mind keeps tricking you to think you are at this larger weight, so that when you gain it all back you aren't too disappointed.  Does that make sense.  The reality is, is that the weight is OFF and it is going to stay OFF and your mind has to do a bit of catch up with your body.  Giving it time they will meet up again and all will be fine.  The nice thing is is that people are noticing and lavishing commenting and wanting to know how I did it.  My husband and I are big fantastic advocates of the book.  Thank you very much my dear man.

Hi ereino! :)

You're correct that our minds play catch up to our new true body image.
It's just how our minds work.
Self-image and body-image are built over time thru feedback from mirrors, photos, and other people.

After seeing ourselves as FAT for a long period of time, our minds will hold on to that "image".
Given enough time, that mental image will change after your subconscious mind becomes used to "seeing" your new body.
That image will replace the old one.

It's only been in the last year or so that I don't see myself as that HUGE guy I used to be!
While you wait for your mind to "catch up", just enjoy your improved health. :) :) :)

I think you may be spot on Ereino, I was heavy for soooo long and the weight came off so fast. The funny part was buying clothes. I had a harder time finding small clothes than I did finding large clothes. Next time you're at the store look at the pants rack in the mens section and see how few 32 inch waist pants are available!

Thanks for your continues support :)

Hi Shawn! :)

As a retired computer professional, I'd like to say...

1) Computers are ignorant!... They only know what we tell them!

2) Computers run on software that was built by imperfect beings (i.e. humans).
That means, there will ALWAYS be another "bug" (i.e. problem) in their programs.

3) Many programs are known to leave "junk" behind after they're stopped.
That junk and "bugs" can confuse these ignorant machines.

Sometimes, computers just need a kick in the behind. ;)
Try restarting your computer and see if that gets the chick dancing.

Tony

Thanks for the tips Tony...it seems that when I click on it...it dances again for a short time and quits again.  Funny how it used to dance all the time without clicking on anything?   ???  Something must have updated to change things I suppose...


I still have a hard time catching up with my body image.... I saw a picture of myself the other day that someone took without me knowing.  I thought to myself "Who is that??"  LOL 

But then too I remember thinking I was fat when I was a teen.  I see pictures of myself now and wonder what was I thinking......LOL
