Getting Rid of Fat Talk

I’ve registered for a 4 week course on Facebook called, “More To Love”. A lot of what has been covered so far are things I’ve already begun to learn and have written about in my blog. Today’s lesson was a little different so I thought I would share it with you. If you’re interested in the course, google the title to find out more about its content and developer Rachel Estapa.

We all have that inner voice or devil on our shoulder who’s mean and nasty. It’s the voice that preys on our low confidence and low self-esteem. We hear it when we look in the mirror or see our reflection in a window saying, “You’re fat, you need to lose some weight.” When we see a cute guy at a party the voice tells us, “Are you crazy? He won’t like you, you’re too fat. Don’t bother even trying to catch his eye.” Your friends convince you to go to the beach with them but when you get there the voice pipes up and says, “You better keep your cover up on, no one wants to see your fat body on the sand.” This is the voice that says, “You’re not good enough to apply for that promotion.” It says, “You’re lazy, stupid, ugly, unworthy.”

You need to get rid of that fat talk! It’s lying to you. Give your voice a personality and a name. Draw a picture of what you think that nasty voice might look like. Write it a note, message or letter and in a forceful, confident voice, tell it to go away and never come back. Make sure you let the nasty voice know it has no place in your head anymore; you will not listen to it or believe it! If it starts to creep back in, yell at it a little louder. Do not give it room to move back into your head or give it room to grow.

Give the new nice voice a chance to be heard and believe it when it says You Are Pretty, Plus and Proud, beautiful, smart, strong, good enough and worthy!
