The weight loss thing is still really interesting and sometimes problematic for me. In theory, I really understand that non weight outcomes need to be primary or in balance with wanting to weigh less. Where I get fuzzy is that I also (at least a bit) buy into these statements: I want to eat less so I lose weight and feel lighter/I want to eat less so I lose weight and feel better putting clothes on.

Gillian, how do you hear those statements?

I think one of the strongest non weight benefits I’m getting in touch with is ‘I want to be able to set an intention and follow through, I want to feel that self control and awareness.’

Does that sound too general? I’m going back to basics right now!
