Scared to lose weight.

Hi CD dieters

This is my first posting and one that may surprise some people out there....

I have tried many diets in the past, but all with no real long term success.

After 1 week on the CD I have discovered something very worrying about myself - I am actually scared to lose weight, (I have already tried to sabotege my most recent efforts). :break_diet:

I do want to lose weight (I buy clothes in size 14 in spite of currently being size 18/20) but something keeps stopping me.

Has anyone out there had a similar experience? How have you dealt with it?

Wants to shed pounds more
I understand that totally. I tend to use mine as a block to the outside world, I think. Some tend to feel like its a buffer. I tend to remain in the same size clothes for a while, but I jack my waist in with a belt or take the waist in a bit. I'll do this until I am ready mentally to shop for smaller things. I want to stablise everything before I go on a clothing splurge :)
Hiya Nicki

OK in this case I would be looking for

1. What is the benefit of staying big?
2. What is the benefit of NOT being slim?

Have a read of this Beneficial Intent

There is a benefit in everything you do and hence if you can understand why you are scared then you can do something about it.


When you understand the beneficial intent
