- Shift your focus from being about “losing weight” to being aware of your felt-sense. Using the hunger-fullness scale is one tool.
- Tune into the body to decide what to eat and how much.
- Eat fats, protein, carbohytrates (aka. food).
- Feel the way clothes fit as opposed to weighing.
- Be open to accepting the body just the way it is.
- Be interested in finding out your “set-point” by natural/intuitive means.
Be open to the possibility that stress is a factor.
Stress can be “historical”, which means it comes from childhood; but when it is triggered it is re-experienced in the moment. The fact that it is an emotional memory that is surfacing is not realized and it is usually avoided or ignored but the body is reacting. It can be triggered by a thought or another feeling (internal) or by an experience (external) and the source or touchstone event may not be realized.
Stress can be related to what is happening or being experienced in the moment. Stress can accumulate over time and, essentially, it builds up in the body.
Notice if that is happening.
Let your ability to notice and allow thoughts and feelings, be how you remember to do that.
