"I have been very overweight, due to stress related to losing five family members. Instead of processing that grief, I reached for the cookies. I really feel that the root cause of gaining weight is directly related to our level of happiness or state of mind. That’s why I like to focus on the mental aspect of weight loss. It’s not that difficult to lose weight: more activity and less calories in! But in addition to that, we must address the emotional distress behind weight gain.
I’m thin now because of the type of food I am eating and the state of my mind and emotions. One of the most overlooked factors in losing weight is state of mind. Holding onto weight can often be related to holding onto the past. All of the weight that I was holding onto was directly related to trauma that I had undergone. I believe it helps to address the emotional state when invoking your transformational power."
