In this episode, I want to touch on the “feeling fat” phrase because it is so widely used, yet I don't feel it is helpful for two reasons.

01. Fat is not a feeling, so saying you're “feeling fat” doesn't actually help anything

02. It distracts us from addressing the real problem at hand

The fact of the matter is, there is a reason why you “feel fat” today when you didn't yesterday. And I can tell you it really has nothing to do with your body. It has to do with emotion and, more specifically, the emotions you are feeling today that you didn't feel yesterday.

To get over this “I feel fat” feeling, you must be honest with yourself about what you are feeling. Are you feeling anger, sadness, anxiety, etc? If weight was off the table, what is the real emotion there? THAT is how you begin to address this and move past it!

Tune in now to learn the first question to ask to figure this out and what to do if you feel like it IS your weight causing the negative emotion.
