THE MOST MAGIC TOOL TO CREATE FREEDOM FROM EMOTIONAL EATING
THE MODEL: PART 2


In the last post I introduced the first pieces of “THE MODEL”.

I introduced the importance of viewing the situations & circumstances in our lives objectively in order to separate the facts from our thoughts. I will give an example of this now.

Let me give an example:

A TV commercial selling gym memberships for the new year marketed to people who are making New Year’s resolutions comes on the TV.

THE FACTS ARE:

A COMMERCIAL CAME ON TV, THE COMMERCIAL MENTIONED GYM MEMBERSHIPS.

Pretty much anyone who watched that commercial would have agreed on that & there was no objective interpretation = THESE ARE THE FACTS. THE END. THAT’S IT. Nada Más.

THE THOUGHTS or the interpretation of what that commercial meant to an individual person is WHERE ALL KINDS OF OUTDATED SOFTWARE PROGRAMS RUNNING IN OUR BRAINS.

Each person’s brain will interpret the facts differently depending on past experience, things that happened in childhood, beliefs learned in their family of origin or in school etc. 

We pick up interpretation tools all throughout our lives.

Here are some versions of what thoughts people could have after watching a commercial about gym memberships.

AND BTW – this is exactly what marketing intends to cause in us psychologically-they study human psychology to elicit these types of responses in us:

1.     Oh, man, it’s the new year again, I haven’t lost any weight. I probably should sign up for the gym.

2.     I’m such a failure, why can’t I lose this weight.

3.     Oh brother, new year’s resolutions again, they never work.

4.     I’m so sick of new year’s resolutions & thinking about going to the gym, I’m so tired, I don’t have time, I really should get a membership especially during the winter because it’s too cold to exercise outside.

5.     This is so annoying to see this commercial-it just reminds me of how much work I need to do and how disgusted I am with myself for getting so heavy.

Some brains don’t have these types of thoughts. They see a commercial & they think things that aren’t even related to the commercial and the negative, guilt-inducing or motivating emotion that they were intended to illicit. 

Some brains see a gym membership commercial and think things like:

1.     I can’t wait until my show starts back up.

2.     Why do we have to have commercials-ugh, I need to get Netflix, so I don’t have to watch commercials

3.     I’ll go start fixing dinner.

4.     I wonder what I’m going to do this weekend.

5.     I love going to the gym.

6.     I remember when I used to go to the gym, I enjoy working out from home now.

7.     I like to walk outside, it’s so satisfying and tank-filling walking each day.

8.     The colors on the background of that commercial are so pretty…or that actor on that commercial was HOT!!!

My point here is that we all make up different meanings or have different interpretations and thoughts about the facts or occurrences that happen on this planet. The way we generally interpret is neither good or bad & the thing we want to ask ourselves is: is this serving me to access the best version of myself & do I want to continue running that thought in my brain.

You have a choice. You don’t have to choose to think, things like, why can’t I lose weight, it’s not possible, I’m a mess or whatever your brain defaults to.

ALL THOUGHTS ARE OPTIONAL.

WAIT, WHAT CANDY? How is that possible…????

Yes, all thoughts are optional. This is where we have choice of how we interpret the world. 

Does this mean we choose to interpret it as Pollyanna? You could, absolutely. Or you could interpret it as Debbie Downer or you could interpret it from a completely different space that would serve you to have access to the best version of yourself.
