Why Pounds ARE Bad for You!

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

Almost daily we are reminded that weighing too many lbs means you are an unhealthy individual. We all put on and lose lbs from time to time; some find losing them easier than others. The media and society tell us that lbs are bad. The media and society also inform us how to gain/lose these unwanted/wanted extras in our life.

How do you feel about lbs? Are they good or bad for you?

In my opinion too many lbs are bad for you. But not the numerical weight measurement. I'm talking about lbs being limiting beliefs. Consider this: too many limiting beliefs are unhealthy, they are bad for you and you will benefit massively when you lose them.

Limiting beliefs are one of the most significant issues that I am presented with as a coach. Ninety nine percent of us have limiting beliefs at different times in our lives. How do these lbs creep into your life? You invite them in. Something happens to you, and then you develop a limiting belief. A lb is based on a particular experience, mostly as a result of a negative experience or one that takes you so far out of your comfort zone that you refuse to face it again.

Why do you let lbs rule your life and make you unhealthy?

Many people I coach initially prefer the security of what is known rather than what is unknown. They like knowing who is around, what is in their immediate vicinity, and they are content to know that their cocoon keeps them safe. However whilst in this cocoon of security, they unknowingly keep adding lbs to their life. What does this do to both them and their cocoon? All too soon the cocoon is bursting at the seams and they feel bloated, unhealthy and typically unhappy. What happened to the so-called blissful state of contentment?

Lbs hold you back. Think about when you lose a few lbs off your waist. How does it make you feel - confident, happy? Losing weight is proven to help improve confidence and self-esteem. When you feel good about yourself, both internally and externally, you will feel lighter and have more energy for life.

Now it's time to lose your limiting beliefs.

Like added weight, which we are responsible for gaining as we put the extra food in our mouth; limiting beliefs stop you from realising your true potential and being the person you can be. Lbs are a burden you do not have to carry. Lbs are energy sapping. Lbs are dangerous to your health (they should have a medical warning!)

The only way to lose your limiting beliefs is firstly to recognise that you have them. When you see the "weight" you are carrying with your lbs, you can then take steps to remove them from your life. When you lose your lbs, you'll be happier, you'll open your eyes to life, (perhaps even step outside your comfort zone) and you'll achieve a greater level of happiness, success and fulfilment.
