Why this doesn’t work when you want to lose weight:

This I know for sure:
If you get out of your way, your body wisdom will always make a choice for wellness.

You’ll choose to carry less weight on your knees.
You’ll choose to give your pancreas an easier time.
You’ll choose to be kinder to your long-suffering liver.
And the best part of it is you don’t even have to know you have a pancreas or liver or even heart.
Your body knows it wants to be well right now, and it already knows how.
You don’t have to try.

A tree doesn’t have to know about photosynthesis to seek the light it needs.
A baby doesn’t have to count calories to know when to stop suckling.
And you too as a living being on this planet know what you have to do.

It’s not will-power that you lack or a trainer or a diet or a better understanding of the Krebs cycle.
You only need the ability to see your human thoughts as the human condition and to tune-in instead to living wisdom we all have.

So relax. Don’t do anything except things that calm you down. Breathe. And go about your day.
Sooner or later you’ll probably have a thought about food.
I hope you have the privilege of seeing yourself at the moment you think one of your crazy thoughts that you think are so true.  

I hope you see in that moment you have a choice.
I hope you see the difference that makes.

It’s quiet and it flickers, so be gentle on yourself.  
Don’t shout. Don’t try. Don’t grab.
Let go and let love.
Let me know how it goes.
