Mediterranean Diet - Wonderful & Lousy Reasons for Losing Weight


Lousy Reasons to Lose Weight

"I want to be a size 0."

"You can never be too thin."

"I want to fit into the same clothes I wore in high school."

"I want to be a waif."

"People will see me as more glamorous."

"People will see me as more childlike."

"Thin people are more popular."

"I want to look like a model."

"Every one else is underweight."

"I want higher cheek bones."

"People will be nicer to me if I am smaller."

"Other people tell me I look fat even though I am within the ideal body weight limits."

"If I lose all of the weight for good, maybe I can stop throwing up after I eat once and for all."

If any of the comments above resemble your own rationale for losing weight then you don't have a weight problem. But you may well have a psychological problem. You simply might not be mentally or emotionally prepared to handle any weight loss problem. Consult with a qualified therapist to get to the bottom of this issue in case its a cognitive disorder. A cognitive disorder is when someone suffers from a distorted view of herself, the world or how others see her.
