Body Building Mind Games: Dont Let Your Weight Determine Your Mood!


Is the 'I Feel Fat Day' (IFFD) syndrome affecting your output? That extra flab can overpower you and your work. Thee feeling of being fat can morph into an emotion like 'happy' or 'angry'. Days overpowered with that feeling have been designated as 'I Feel Fat Day' (IFFD). So don't let your weight determine your mood.

How many times have you heard your colleague quipping, "I feel fat" or "It's a fat day feeling?" Can't fit into your favorite pair of jeans? How about a snide comment from a relative or colleague? That's all it takes to turn an ordinary Monday or Tuesday into IFFD(I Feel Fat Day).

Perhaps just like the national celebrations, 'fat' is important enough to get a day named in its honour and it doesn't just come one a year! Carrying extra pounds is necessary but not exclusive prerequisite to an IFFD. To have an IFFD, one must also carry an element of shame. A good IFFD is not complete without tears, self loathing and a frantic scramble for concealing clothes.

So, how to keep away 'fat' from becoming an emotion? Simple semantics: fat is fat. Don't confuse it with the emotions so often attached to it, and recognize that shame and self-loathing are useless distractions. Neither of them will help you get closer to your goal. The way out is simple: instead of wasting time and psychic energy on IFFDs, we could use those special resources for the job at hand.

Here's the ultimate plan for coping with an IFFD:

. Make your very next meal a healthy one. By choosing a lightly dressed salad instead of the usual, you are putting yourself on anew path and abruptly ending the IFFD.

. Get Moving. A body in motion is beauty in progress. Even if it's the middle of the day and you cant hit the gym because of your tight schedule, you can still go up and down the stairs.

. Wear something that makes you feel beautiful and enjoy your unique look.

. Hang out with positive people. Try to be in company of winners, people who feed you energy and inspire the best in you.

. YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE AND TRANSFORM YOUR OWN AS WELL. LEARN TO APPRECIATE AND VALUE YOURSELF.
