Ooh, interesting concept, glad I found this thread. I've been sitting on Fred recently, poor guy, he's not allowed to get up till he's proved to me he's changed. He's getting there. But it means I'm not relaxing for a bit till I'm sure he is trust worthy.
Sent from my HTC using MiniMins so excuse random words that have been autocorrected!
I like that, Fionut.
My Fred is learning - but has had so many years being allowed to do what he likes, it will be a long time before he's trustworthy. I imagine he'll start trying to have his own way as I start to reintroduce protein (120g meat, 140g fish or 2 eggs with supper veggies) when I'm 7lbs less. And once he's learned to cooperate on that I imagine at goal, he'll also need to remember that old habits (snacks when I fill up o n petrol etc) are no longer how I live my life.
I still love this thread - my Inner Fred is so important to success. Bounce - so others may see this.
KD, I know I am late to the party, but thank you for this. After 3 years of constantly watching my weight (to varying degrees of success), I realise that the weight-loss battle is mostly a mental one. Thank you for giving my inner demon a name! Your practical advice has me made me feel (for the first time in a long time) like I can conquer my Fred and re-teach him a thing or two.
Fantastic thread, thank you. I've been consciously aware for some years now that it's my head that needs fixing in relation to my weight. My best friend is a hypnotherapist and have done many sessions with her which have helped a lot, but still not aligned my 'Fred' sufficiently to avoid a battle of wills. Accepting, understanding and indeed retraining Fred is what it's all about. Thanks again x
I may have to name him something other than Fred though as that's my soon-to-be-ex father in law's name
This thread should be stickied!

This is brilliant! By personifying negative automatic behaviours you give a face to the demon and can yell at it! Thanks!
