For better or worse, fear is a part of our emotional make-up. If someone tells you they are never afraid they may be stretching the truth. Why are people afraid of things? In the video interview below, I discuss some of my fears of losing weight and how I overcame them.
I realized that even though some of those fears came true as I dropped the weight, nothing really bad happened. I dealt with the way people treated me, I was very careful after I reached my goal weight, and my life was better after I lost weight. My fears of success were unfounded. And probably – so are yours.
I’d like to encourage you to not let the fear of failure or success stop you from continuing on your quest to get healthy. Putting my fears aside wasn’t easy, but it was an important step in my journey.
