Step 4

CHECK OUT YOUR AS­SUMP­TIONS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - Weightloss -

Peo­ple some­times in­ter­pret nor­mal, everyday things as ev­i­dence of their “fat­ness”. For ex­am­ple, a lot of women think that if their thighs or stom­achs wob­ble, this means they are “fat”. In ac­tual fact, wob­bli­ness is a nor­mal fe­male char­ac­ter­is­tic. We’re made to wob­ble! For other women, the nor­mal fluid re­ten­tion that hap­pens when they are pre­men­strual can be viewed as a “sign” that they are putting on weight. Try to no­tice what you are as­sum­ing to be ev­i­dence of “fat”, and look for the facts. This may mean do­ing a Google search, dis­cussing your as­sump­tions with friends and fam­ily, or even ask­ing your GP.
