How You Can “Get Out of Jail” Today by Creating New, Better Feeling Stories About Unwanted Weight

Get-out-of-jail-card  I’ve posted that nothing in life comes to us in a pre-existing state of “good” or “bad”.  It is the story we tell, or value we assign to it, which makes anything “good” or “bad” for us.

Even extra weight?  Am I claiming that even unwanted weight is neither “good” nor “bad”, except for the story we tell ourselves about it?

Yep.  I am.

Unwanted Weight Can Actually Be Thought of as Neither “Good” Nor “Bad”?  Isn’t That Heresy to Dieters?

Think of it this way: no pleasure is possible without first knowing pain.  Said another way, how would we know what we want, with a burning desire, without first knowing what we don’t want.

I know you may be scoffing at what you’ve just read.  It’s a radical notion to suggest that unwanted weight could possibly be “good”.  Or even to suggest merely that it might not be “bad”.  But hear me out.

You’re Already Telling Yourself Stories About (Giving Meaning To) Your Unwanted Weight…Why Insist Those Stories Must Be Painful?

You have unwanted weight.  That is the current state of your body.  And I’m not aware of any amount of wishing that will change that for you in this moment, nor am I aware of the location of any magic lamps containing genies to grant you three wishes to change it right now.

So, given that fact, which sounds like it will be more helpful in leading you toward finally losing your unwanted weight:

  1. Beating yourself up for having unwanted weight and calling it (and, perhaps, yourself) “bad” and “wrong”
  2. Finding ways to tell better feeling stories about your current state so that you are no longer berating yourself for your unwanted weight.

I suggest that the later is infinitely more positive and will lead to freedom, just for today, from the prison you sometimes feel your unwanted weight keeps you in.  I suggest that if you make feeling good about something you can’t change, in this instant, one of your top priorities, you will quickly feel the power of quantum physics and how it can help you change yourself for the better.

Wait a Minute?  You Mean I Can Change My Weight with Just My Mind?  How?

But I am not suggesting that you can say, right now, “I’m glad I have unwanted weight; I’m very happy to be carrying more weight than I want.”  That is silly, primarily because it is not realistic and you would never really believe it (even if you said it to yourself 100 times).

But can you tell yourself this story?  “I am not really happy about my unwanted weight, but I also know that this weight is not ‘who I am’ and it is only a temporary state.  I can also accept that the pain this unwanted weight has caused me might be exactly what I’ve needed to become willing to make changes, just for today.”

That is a realistic, believable story; you’re not sugar-coating the “truth” and you’re not lying to yourself.  You’re being honest about what you don’t want and you’re telling yourself a better-feeling story about it.  And I promise you that if you make it your business to tell better feeling stories, like the one you just read, about your unwanted weight (and yourself), you will be well underway to seeing your weight-loss efforts finally begin to have the positive effects you’ve been desiring!

Stay tuned to this blog for more tips about telling better stories and other ways to use quantum physics to find lasting weight loss.  And, if you’re serious about wanting to really delve into the amazing science of quantum physics, to experience weight loss in a way you’ve never imagined possible, make sure you read Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat right now!

When You Stop Saying I Am Fat You Start Solving a Huge Problem

frustration  Let’s take a moment from our discussion of the new paradigms from quantum physics  which you need to finally lose your unwanted weight.  Today let’s discuss a practical application of the new holism paradigm in weight loss.

What follows is a “street-level” way to engage the power of the holism paradigm with your weight loss.

I Don’t Care How Much You Weight; “You” Aren’t Fat!

So often, I hear people with unwanted weight say, “I am fat”.  And I almost always cringe.

I have found, through researching quantum physics, that the words we use are very important.  Why?  Because they not only reveal but also reinforce our beliefs.

And here is the problem presented by saying, “I am fat” (which seems like a fairly “innocent” phrase and, certainly, is one everyone seems to use without discretion).  Saying, “I am fat” defines me as a person.  It defines my state of being.

And if you can tell me that the word “fat” doesn’t have negative, if not awful, connotations for you…well, I’m going to tell you that I don’t believe you.

So if I say, “I am fat”, I am defining who I am and my state of being using a very negative word with really bad associations.  Yuck!  How can I feel good about myself under that definition of “who I am”?!

Look How Important the Words We Use Are!  They Make a World of Difference, Don’t They?

But what if, instead, I say, “I have unwanted weight”?  That phrase does not define who I am or my state of being.  That phrase merely describes a current physical condition – which then starts building and reinforcing a belief in the possibility that my unwanted weight is not permanent!

Try it right now.  Say these two phrases aloud and really pay attention to your gut, noticing how each makes you feel

  • First, say, “I am fat”.
  • Let a little time lapse.
  • Next, say, “I have unwanted weight”.

I dare you to tell me you didn’t notice a difference.  And, in addition to the second phrase feeling better, were you lying to yourself or “sugar-coating” your present weight-loss challenges?  Nope…not one iota!

My recommendation is to never refer to yourself as “fat” again!  You’ll notice a big difference in your weight-loss efforts!

Why You Should Stop Using Internet Explorer if You Want to Lose Weight

kim-kardashian-quantum-physics  You’ve been patient (and, I trust, interested) in reading about paradigms (and science) and how you can use them to lose weight.

Let me address the topic of “how” you can use new paradigms to lose weight.

Here Are the Keys to a Bright, New, Shiny, 500 Horsepower Paradigm!

First, as I’ve stated in this blog, a new paradigm like holism will allow you to lose weight.  Much more effectively than the paradigm holism replaces: the machine paradigm.

It might help you to think of your paradigms as the web browsing software you use.  Every day you visit a vast array of websites, for personal, business, and entertainment purposes, and they are all distinct and unique.  But your web browser (whether Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or any other you might use) is always the constant framework for all the websites you visit, providing the structure for their use and display.

You might not even realize this, but a website often looks and functions completely differently in different web browsers.  The web browser you use presents the web sites to you in a certain format and provides you with unique web surfing options (which are different from other web browsers) while browsing the Internet.

Who Has the Time or Inclination to Think About Stuff Like Paradigms?  I’ve Got Laundry to Do!

You probably don’t ever think about which web browser you use because you are accustomed to it and it is familiar to you.  You wouldn’t really ever have any reason to think about which web browser you use either because the one you use works just fine for you – you get to the web sites you want to visit and you’re able to do everything you want to on the Internet.  Why would you think about it?

But what if your web browser didn’t work for you anymore?  What if you weren’t able to visit the web sites you wanted to go to, what if you couldn’t purchase the items on the Internet you wanted, or what if you could no longer do the things you wanted to on the Internet, like being unable to connect with friends via email or social networking sites?

Your first thought might be to tinker and experiment with the particular websites you’ve been using.  But what if, no matter how many different websites you tried, you still couldn’t do the things you wanted to on the Internet?  You might consult a tech-savvy friend and that friend might tell you something like, “The web browser you’re using is too limited; you should install Google Chrome (for example) and start using it to surf the web.”

Your learned friend, it turns out, would probably be correct.  If you followed her advice, you would have to go through a slightly awkward adjustment period where you became accustomed to the new ways that Google Chrome worked and got familiar with the new format.  But, once you were familiar with the new web browser, you would realize that the slight inconvenience of learning the new ways of operating it was worth it because you could now do all the things you want to on the Internet.

So Paradigms Can Help Me Get On-Line?  I Can Drop My Internet Service Provider?

That is exactly how paradigms work.  If you replace “web browser” with “paradigm” in the previous example, and replace “do the things you want to on the Internet” with “lose weight”, you will have a good illustration of how a new paradigm will work for you.  In the previous example, the “websites you’re visiting” can be replaced with “your weight loss plans and programs.”  Just like using a new web browser would suddenly allow you to do exactly what you want to on the Internet, with new paradigms you’ll find that your weight loss efforts suddenly become super effective.

If you’re like me, you’ll even find that with new paradigms, your weight loss efforts become more effective than you were originally promised!

Because, if you’re reading this blog, your “web browser” (of course, I am referring to your “paradigms”) is not allowing you to “use the Internet” (and, of course, I really mean “lose your unwanted weight”) the way you want.  It’s time to consult your “tech savvy friend” (in this case, I am really referring to my book,  Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat, and this blog) and get a new “web browser” (once again, I really mean “paradigms”) so that you can “do what you want on the Internet” (again, “lose your unwanted weight”).

Your old paradigms have failed you in your continued quest to lose your unwanted weight (and you’ll soon learn why…hint – don’t blame yourself because it’s not your fault) and it’s time for new ones (which you are about to learn and are infinitely more effective)!
