Scared to be Skinny

Are you always on a diet but just never quite reach your goal? 
Or, if you do lose weight, is it impossible to keep it off?
Maybe what you really want (to lose weight) is also what you fear.  Maybe you’re scared to be skinny.
In this episode Dr. Nina identifies four fears that sabotage weight loss efforts.  She tells listeners that the biggest influences on behavior are thoughts and beliefs that are unconscious – out of awareness but not out of operation.

So, although you consciously want to lose weight, the extra pounds may also serve as a protection from certain situations, experiences and relationships.   When you recognize and work through those conflicts, you can free yourself from them.

And that’s how you win the diet war.
