Letting go of guilt

Turn down the volume of the harsh voice telling you that you’re useless. Turn up the volume of the understanding someone who really cares and can forgive, says Margaret Miles-Bramwell

This is a slimming magazine and you’re reading it for delicious new recipe ideas. You also want to be inspired by slimmers who have tried everything there is to try and who finally found the answer with Food Optimising, and for the latest health and fitness advice. You’ll find all these things – and more – within these pages. But for those of you whose weight has been – and still is – a major factor in spoiling a large part of your life, you need more. You need to understand why each journey to slimness that you embark upon, a journey that starts out so full of hope, ends in despair.

It’s a huge subject and couldn’t be covered in one issue, but you need to start by understanding about guilt, and the need to forgive yourself. Without forgiveness, the same patterns that have led you unerringly to each slimming disaster will simply repeat themselves, no matter how generous and easy Food Optimising is, no matter how many recipe ideas you read. Nothing changes if nothing changes… Learning to forgive yourself and shed the burden of guilt (and excess weight) is a change that you need to – and can – make right now.

There are plenty of motivational real-life stories to inspire you, too. Meet cover star Jennifer, embracing an exciting new future after losing 9½st; married couple Andrew and Paula, who’ve lost a combined 14st 9lbs; and six more Slimming World members who are enjoying the health and wellbeing benefits of achieving their target weight.
