Fat is NOT a feeling…

You cannot BE FAT.

Fat is a substance and you can’t ever be a substance!

Whenever you feel fat, ask yourself what you are really feeling in this moment.

Scared? Tired? Frustrated? Jealous? Lonely? Anxious? Depressed? Tired?

What is the root cause of your feeling?

I always felt inadequate, lonely, depressed and simply not enough and all of that translated into feeling obnoxiously fat. However, now that I’ve learned that those were just interpretations of the mind, it is so much easier to cope with whatever it is that I am really feeling.

Your body and mind is telling you something when you’re feeling fat. Take a moment for yourself, breathe and figure out what is really going on and if you can be proactive about it and change your situation and emotions.

Susan,

YES! Society sends so many toxic messages and it’s super hard not to listen to them and to find your own values and what you really believe in. If I had the power I’d ban all those ridiculously unrealistic pictures, banners and messages. We need to find our beauty deep inside again instead of always looking on the outside.
