Losing weight starts with loving yourself

Weight gain is a problem that many people find difficult to control. There are millions who are overweight and just as many who are obese.

Dr. Timothy Moore

Weight gain is a problem that many people find difficult to control. There are millions who are overweight and just as many who are obese. The numbers are staggering. But one woman is determined to do something about it. She has tried the latest fads in diets; they didn’t work. Then she turned to me for answers. Her story is riveting and worth sharing.

“Hello, Chef:

“I’m writing to you because I am at a dilemma when it comes to my weight, which I’m not able to control. I have tried every diet program on the market. They don’t help me control my weight and it seems there’s not a solution to my problem.

“I’ve been reading your articles and they have helped me tremendously in understanding that one of the major keys to losing weight is to love yourself, first. It took me a while before I could stand in my mirror and say those words, because I didn’t believe I could ever love the person in the mirror.

“After reading your articles, I started to see a person that I’ve never seen before. I started to appreciate myself for who I am and realized that if I never lose weight but appreciate myself and love me for me, I can conquer any problem that I have, including my weight.

“I just want to say thank you for the articles. They help me to realize who I am as a person. Is there a way you can write more about weight loss and solutions for those who are struggling like me? I hope they’re not complicated, the solutions.

“Sometimes I feel depressed and start thinking negatively. Maybe some of us are supposed to be unhealthy and overweight. I don’t know. But would you please, Chef, help me to understand why I cannot, no matter what I do, lose weight. I love myself, but I have to lose this weight.”

When I received this woman’s email, I could feel the passion and immediacy in her words. She is sincere in losing weight and making the necessary lifestyle changes to regain her health. Her plea, as touching as it is forthright, is no more than a desperate attempt to avoid the grim reaper.

What is the solution to losing weight? You must eat a daily portion of fruit and vegetables and get rid of the red meat, sugar, dairy products, etc. Then you must exercise regularly, change your lifestyle and drink plenty of fresh water. If you can do this, the weight will fall off.

It may seem like you’re not able to overcome your struggles with weight, but don’t fret. There are a lot of people who share your story. They’re asking the same question: Why do I feel like every time I eat something, or just look at food, it seems to stick to my sides and hips?

Food can be very addictive. You have to look at what you’re really trying to accomplish. Two examples come to mind: Are you trying to reach your ideal weight? And what is it going to take to make you happy? These are questions you must answer yourself.

I’m sure others are going through some of the same challenges that you’re facing and seeking help. If you look at obesity rather closely, you’ll discover that some men and children are facing this dilemma, just like you, on a daily basis.

Even if you’re obese or gained more weight than necessary, you still should wear a smile. Don’t continue to hit a brick wall because you really don’t see the importance of the person in the mirror. In most cases, you’re trying to please someone else and not yourself.

If you love who you are, you’ve found the key to happiness. Now you can conquer your weight problem and start the healing process. It may take a little time to shed those pounds, but you can’t give up. If you’re still trying those fad diets, try switching to a diet of fruit and vegetables. The results will amaze you.

Start making gradual steps toward your goal and the weight will come off naturally. And don’t give up. If you eat healthy, exercise and drink plenty of water, you’ll be able to face yourself in the mirror. That’s a promise.
