Many times, with the best of intentions, we will use diet and exercise to reverse the weight gain. In and of itself, It’s not a good strategy because you’re addressing what’s happened (weight gain) and not why it’s happened (pain-fear-guilt-shame, etc.). This would be like putting someone in jail for any crime before having a fair trial.
The biggest reason why diet and exercise doesn’t sustainably work for most of us is because it’s not the priority. If you’re weight gain has been facilitated by a lack of worth due to rejection in your formative years, I’m sorry, but eating less and moving more is not a fix. Leading an active lifestyle and consuming nourishing foods is part of a balanced lifestyle but not a cure all.
The solution is to look into your GAP, your personal resistance, the space between where you are and where you want to be. The GAP is full of everything you likely don’t want to confront but until you do, you may continue trying to use diet and exercise to fix something that requires a different form of attention.
