Are you fat because you are depressed?


Are you depressed because you are fat?

Or is it something else altogether?

Most often people who struggle to lose weight, or fail to keep it off once they have lost it find solace in eating.

They get comfort from the pleasure that some foods give them, but then feel guilty that they have eaten something that sabotages their health, fitness and fat loss goals.

If this is you then maybe it's time to take a look inside.

And I'm not talking spirituality, and I'm not knocking spirituality either.

You see most people are afraid to look inside themselves because they are afraid of what they might find.

What am I talking about?

I'm talking about some deep-seated negative experience that you might have had in the past, or might be going through right now.

I'm talking of past experience of failure, feeling bullied, pressured or victimised at work.

I'm talking about not being taken seriously. I'm talking about family troubles, marriage troubles, and money troubles.

You know, the things that you either never truly deal with, or sweep under the carpet because you don't want to upset the apple cart.

But if don't address it, it will keep eating away at you while you keep eating away at what’s in the fridge!

Thing is, YOU deserve to be happy.

YOU deserve to live without fear.

YOU deserve to be put first.

YOU deserve to have respect.

BUT you won't get that respect until you start respecting yourself.

And you won't respect yourself until you deal with those big scary arse monsters that you have locked away deep inside your brain afraid to let them out so you can confront them.

So I'll ask again: are you fat because you are depressed or are you depressed because you are fat?

Or is it something else altogether?

Face your fears.

Conquer them.

And claim the happiness that YOU deserve.

You got this.


PS. This isn’t an attack on anyone struggling with mental health or their weight. I’m just offering some questions for you to maybe look a little deeper, and maybe help you to unlock some problems you may be burying.
