We all have a past, it’s part of living. Some are more comfortable letting go of their past, understanding it is the lessons that are important and not the circumstances.
A friend in San Diego say “It’s okay to look at the past, just don’t stare!”
If you can learn from your experiences but not let them interfere with you life today you will have more peace of mind and that is a precious commodity.
Case in Point: Weight Loss
I went to Mexico to visit a friend for a few weeks. I feel like we are closer than most family members, certainly if you were to use my family as a reference point.
We became friends after she became my client in 2004. We discovered after having a coffee meeting that we had many things in common including a battle with our weight fluctuation.
We both had tried every diet we had heard of, most of the same ones but usually at different times.
I still believe that excess weight gain has more to do with chemical malfunctions and exposure to an abundance of antibiotics, but it’s hard to prove.
What does make sense however is there isn’t a single healthy body that is overweight. Being overweight does not always pertain to what is eaten.
She had been doing the HCG diet fairly successfully for three months by the time I got there but we wanted to see if there was an emotional component to the factors.
Sure enough, there was.
As it turns out, she hadn’t been in a serious relationship of any length or consequence since she was a size 6. Or was it she hadn’t been a size 6 since she had been in a relationship.
We had a chance to work on the issue several times while I was there and sure enough we got the issue to be resolved and register less than a 1 consistently.
