what is my fat trying to tell me?

does anyone ever ask themselves what the extra pounds are insulating them from? if so, what sort of answers did you come up with?
how did you begin to answer the question?
Thanks for sharing!

All through school I was the perfect weight with the perfect body. Then I had three kids and "Wham" I was no longer that perfect little body. I think that by keeping the fat I was insulating myself from acknoledging that I was no longer petite. Once I finally let myself admit that I needed to lose weight I could not stand behind the baby fat anymore.

My fat is trying to tell me....

Don't ever let me sneak up on you like this again!! Weigh everyday and keep it in check so we don't have to do this long journey again and you can live happy and healthy for the rest of your life!!!

Blozzom :-)

My fat says to me:

"You are insulated from starvation. But don't forget that I'm here because throughout most of human history starvation has been a fact of life. And it is still a problem throughout the world, so remember to do something for the less fortunate whenever you can."

Being fat = being rich and fortunate, in many respects.

my fat is insulating the pretty girl inside who had confidence and got alot of attention from men, everytime i start to look good and start getting attention again i feel guilt (for my husband?) then i sabotage myself, it's silly I know .

Thanks all for sharing!
Note to the person who thinks she is silly for her behavior-no way you are silly because you are absolutely not alone in these types of thoughts.
When I find myself losing a couple of pounds and feeling sexy and more attractive, I sabotage myself as well. I think it's a fear of some sort. Intimacy perhaps?
That "pretty little girl" struck a chord w/me as well. I need to think some more about that senario. glo39 :-)
