Who Do You Think You Are?

by Kris Pitcher

Many of us have at times felt marginalized, discriminated against, ignored or dismissed. No one wants to be made to feel that way. And while the instances in which those "things" might have occurred in our lives are long gone, sometimes those feelings creep up on us.

When they do, it's difficult to stay on track. Emotional eating can be brought on by many things, but these are amongst them. What if feeling like a second class citizen was a self fulfilling prophecy?

I wonder, what will change in your life when you meet your weight loss goal? My sense is we should feel empowered to live the life we want now. There is no need to wait. We don't need to be a certain size, have a certain "thing", a certain amount of money...fill in the blank. There is no then, there's only now.

Finding your empowerment means redefining those feelings of being dismissed, ignored, or marginalized. It means letting those things go, and not allowing them to be a crutch. It means reaching deep for the strength you own. It's already there, waiting for you to live in your now. 

The question becomes, what will change in your life today? You are who you think you are. Right now.
