But the door is wide open.
Have you ever heard of this saying?
When a person close to you is self sabotaging or behaving in a self destructive way we have a vantage point that allows us to see something they cannot see. We see clearly that their behavior is holding them captive as a prisoner.
The interesting thing is that from our view we can see that they are in a prison cell in which the door to the cell is wide open.
What does this mean?
It means that the person does not even know that they are in a prison. It means that this person is continuing to do the same thing and the very thing that they are doing is keeping them inside this prison cell.
This is what I run into all the time with clients and friends who are struggling to lose weight. They are in the prison cell of “trying to lose weight”. They live in that cell for years and unfortunately it could be their entire life.
If you are unsure if you are in this prison cell let me ask you a few questions that will help you determine if you are or are not.
- Are you frustrated with how difficult it is to lose weight?
- Do you think your body is too old and doesn’t work the same as it used to when it comes to weight loss?
- Have you been unsuccessfully trying to lose weight your entire life?
If you answered yes to all of these questions then you are living in the “trying to lose weight” prison cell.
If this is you I have great news. The door to this prison cell is wide open!
Unlike real prison cells you can get out of this one. But it will be hard to get out of it alone. You need the right plan, an accountability coach and a community to support you.
