The third day. "The Dark Side of the Moon," or explore the positive aspects of overeating and overweight

Who is the one who, forever wanting evil has done so much good?
"Robin-Bobin Barabek ate forty people, and then he says:" My stomach hurts. " In order not to appear in the situation of Barabek, you need a punctual account of every piece you eat. We will once again at the very beginning of the third day return to the benefits of calorie counting. Oh, I'm sorry for your perseverance. Do you count the daily calorific value of your food yesterday and today before each decimal place? And this is not just a question, it's a kind of test: people consider weight loss successes to be accurate to tenths and even hundredths. Become successful and you, learning to control your weight and eating behavior.
Thus, you have formed the subconscious automatism necessary for the whole subsequent life, the "Calorie Counter". If, when you go to bed, you think that today was a hard and unfortunate day, then remember also that today you ate the right amount of calories and one more day you became closer to your goals!
There is such a thing as the calorie counting algorithm. This strategy of eating is successful in reducing the weight of a person. It looks like this: 3 (wanted) - C (counted) - C (ate) - 3 (recorded), but you do not need to say the abbreviation.
As in any other new case, in teaching calorie counting in the first stages, you will have to exert maximum efforts. But "the eyes are afraid, but their hands do." This saying will help you in the beginning of the journey. And the more accurately you think, the faster you will form an automatic "calorie counter".
In the future, after 3-4 weeks, you will find that calculating the calorie content of a complex dish, for example borsch, will take you less time than reading this paragraph.
Now let's move on to the practical part. Today we have two tasks:
I. Find benefits in excess weight.
II. Sincerely thank the extra pounds to say goodbye to them.
Amazing tasks, is not it? We will surprise you a little: remember and read your answers to the question: "What's wrong with being overweight?" So, how much is in excess weight bad, exactly so much good in it. But this is sometimes realized with great difficulty. And the more a person has, the greater benefit to his life comes from extra Kilograms.
After reading the last sentence, one of the readers will be indignant and say: "This is not so, from excess weight some troubles ... And here they speak about some good." But do you know that Eastern sages consider obesity not a disease, but a protection of the body from any emotional unhappiness? In our opinion, they are very close to the truth.
Indeed, extra pounds, harming human health, at the same time protect opranizm from even more destruction. At a subconscious level, overweight is the desire to maintain health, paradoxically though it sounds.
Suppose a person is "at odds with the world and fate," and life seems so insipid to him that you can continue to continue it, only by sweetening, peppering and seasoning with mayonnaise. And if you deprive him of this surrogate, but still a consolation, then it may well be that the poor fellow will be just a stone's throw away from a heart attack ...
Thus, it becomes clear that overweight carries with it not only minuses, but also pluses, Delivering certain troubles, it at the same time protects us from even greater damage. Psychologists call this phenomenon a "secondary benefit." Every extra kilogram has a good reason to stay in your body.
The famous psychotherapist Milton Erickson, already a recognized master, allowed himself to communicate with patients in unusual therapeutic "tricks." One day a woman came to see him who was overweight. Of course, she had many complaints about health and other problems. Erickson asked her to talk about the feelings that she is experiencing at the moment, but in response he heard a memorized and endless continuation of all those more complaints. The woman did not know her feelings and could not talk about them. Then Milton Erikson picked up a fold on her stomach with two fingers and, repeating it, began to repeat: "There is not a drop of fat, there are a lot of emotions, there is absolutely no fat here, only emotions."
The meaning of this story is that, from a psychological point of view, in overeating and overweight, there are a lot of unsettled experiences and unexpressed emotions. As one of our patients said: "I was not worried, I was chewing." Often food saves a person from such unpleasant experiences as loneliness, boredom, anxiety, anger and others. And if there were no "food" ways to cope with difficult emotions, then who knows how you would feel?
With regard to overeating, to find its "secondary benefit" (most likely, there are several of them) is in large part to guarantee "long-term" harmony.
There are cases when the benefits of completeness exceed those advantages that slenderness gives. This leads to a rapid return (and even with a "makeweight") with a great difficulty of dumping kilograms. Therefore, carefully read the most common forms of "secondary benefit" from excess weight, which our patients say. Remember that the realization of most of these "pluses" does not come at once.
Excess weight gives the absence of jealousy from the side of a loved one.
Overweight gives the bosses an authoritative, solid appearance.
Excess weight serves as an excuse for life's failures.
Overweight is a means of self-punishment.

Overweight protects a person from unwanted thoughts, feelings and emotions.
Overweight helps to forget about yourself and be useful to meaningful people.
Overweight helps to appear kind and good.
Overweight helps to be more assertive and more aggressive.
Overweight helps to play the role of a victim and cause sympathy.
Overweight helps to attract the attention of others.
Overweight helps to realize the need for love and care.
Overweight contributes to easier mutual understanding with friends.
Overweight helps to reduce responsibility for yourself and your life.
Therefore, trying to lose weight, think carefully: why do you need it, will refusal of delicacies give you joy, is the game worth the candle? After all, one woman in the literal sense of bread does not feed, just let me defile in a dangerously fitting mini under the admiring glances of men, and the other gets a "high buzz" from cozy domestic gatherings with pies and pancakes. Therefore, everyone chooses a body according to their interests, lifestyle and life priorities.
Exercise 1. "Secondary" benefit of overeating.
Write at least seven answers to the question: "What was good in overeating and overweight?"

So, it's time for a "divorce" with extra pounds. Now that you have decided to eat food in reasonable quantities and only to maintain the needs of your body, you need to say goodbye to your old habit of being saved by overeating. We recommend saying goodbye and, accordingly, with weight - the way they say good-bye to good old acquaintances. You have been together more than one month. To say goodbye is to forgive all the troubles and thank you for all the good. Believe me, your extra pounds deserve it.
Exercise 2. Farewell to excess weight.
Take a few minutes in a quiet home environment, maybe, specially for this, take a bath and try with love and appreciation once again to see, feel your enlarged body and say superfluous kilograms of THANKS. They really protected you. Say thank you and part with overeating as with something childish, nostalgically enjoyable, but hindering you in adulthood.
Try to make this farewell and gratitude sincere. Say good-bye with weight calmly, without hatred - on the contrary, thank him for what he once did you benefit. Believe me, this is actually so. Today you are like a little child who leaves the hospital home to his parents and with gratitude forever says goodbye to a doctor, nurse, taking care of him during illness.
Perhaps the positive function of overeating and excess weight exists in your life so far. In this case, think of at least three ways to get such "pluses" without using food.
Exercise 3. Draw a table in your notebook and answer the questions.
The positive function of overeating and extra pounds How can I get the same in three other ways?

Exercise 4. We get rid of ballast.
"Secondary benefit" of excess weight is the "friend" of ballast irrational installations. It's time to get rid of the second part of this "sweet couple".
Think about your own "myths" and prejudices concerning extra pounds. They can be a great variety. For example: "I have absolutely no time to deal with myself and my weight loss!" This means that among the dozens of both important and minor matters that you pay attention to during the day, you put your dream of a slim figure to the last place . But this is not so! Or maybe you just do not organize your day?
Or other "myths": "My work, my family, my way of life do not allow changing habits in the diet." This series can be continued indefinitely. The fact is that such reasons are a consequence of a weak desire to lose weight. Or subtly thought out tricks of the part of the person responsible for your extra pounds, a kind of "psychological defense of the Shrewd Fat".
If your previous unsuccessful attempts to lose weight ended with the words "I do not have the willpower!", Now instead of this expression just say to yourself: "I had an inadequate desire to become slim."
