The case of the bikini figure ....

Spring is here. The sun gives us energy, everything seems lighter and more positive.

The winter coat goes into the closet!

We are happy! No question ...

If only there was not the thing with the bikini figure.

I myself was too fat, too thin, just right, on the border ...

But what for, actually?

Admittedly, who does not struggle with his body from time to time?

We all want to feel good in our skin and radiate that.

That doesn't always work out!

And let's be honest! Just because our "mindset" fits and we are at peace with ourselves, does not mean that we are automatically satisfied with our body.

Especially in the spring, we think about swim season with mixed feelings....

with an eye on our bikini figures!

We get under pressure and want to work "with power" on our "swim figure".

Our physicality and our weight are very complex issues that usually accompany and occupy us throughout our lives.

Even if we manage to block out the influences, the one or other comment, there is still our own critic.

No one has the right to categorize the other, but how do we handle this ourselves?

do we handle it ourselves?

For example, what do we do when we feel uncomfortable and really think, I have too much/too little weight, I don't feel in shape, I have changed and need to learn to deal with it, etc.?

In the therapeutic context, this topic is

a very complex one.

Es ist oft mit vielschichtigen emotionalen, psychologischen und

körperlichen Faktoren verbunden.

Menschen, die sich mit Gewichtsproblemen befassen, können sich schuldig, frustriert oder verlegen fühlen, was es schwierig machen kann, darüber zu sprechen.

Daher gilt es, ein sensibles Gespür für die Bedürfnisse und Empfindungen zu entwickeln, um ein unterstützendes Umfeld zu schaffen.

Gewichtsprobleme können auch psychologische Faktoren wie Depressionen, Angstzustände oder Essstörungen auslösen oder verstärken.

Auch körperliche Faktoren können eine Rolle spielen.

In these cases it may be more difficult to lose or maintain weight.

Here, an individual medical is given.

I find it very important to take a holistic approach to weight loss, which also takes into account psychological and emotional aspects

of weight management.

Individualized and holistic care can help improve the chances of success and promote the health and well-being of patients.

It remains a very complex issue, where it is not enough to simply eat less (some people eat too little and therefore cannot lose weight), or to screw with your inner attitude and, poof, just accept yourself as you are!

The reasons for wanting to change are as varied as we are as people, as we humans are.

And that is how it should be viewed and approached:

The first thing to do is to recognize:

Is there really a problem? Or, is it a problem of my environment? The media, etc.?

  • Is this problem of a physical or psychological nature?

  • What is the previous history?

  • What are the reasons for the condition?

The choice of method

If we now decide to tackle the issue, it still remains to choose the method,

with which we want to achieve our goals.

There are hundreds of diets and sports programs.

The fact that we need to reduce calories in order to lose weight is not something new for anyone.

new to anyone.

The reasons why we can't get over ourselves, for example, and then stick with it are individual and varied, but they have one thing in common:

They take place within us.

And once we have deciphered these blockages and obstacles, we can target them.

And to decode and ultimately dissolve these obstacles, methods such as hypnosis and EMDR are excellent.

These techniques start where our mind stops.

The principle in methods like hypnosis or EMDR is based on breaking blocking thought and behavior patterns and replacing them with supportive habits.

These techniques can assist in breaking down blockages, uncovering and changing patterns, defusing stimuli, and identifying the causes of emotional eating behaviors such as cravings or chocolate cravings.

Focused relaxation can be used to search for the true motivations behind unfavorable eating behavior or poor body image, and so-called resources can be activated to break down barriers.

"Intuitive eating", for example, is a concept that aims to listen to and respond to the needs of the body and psyche, rather than following strict diet plans or letting ourselves be guided by external influences.

The concept of intuitive eating is based on the idea that every body is unique and has different needs.

So if we listen to our body and give it what it needs, we will feel better and regulate our weight and health

in a natural way.

There are many benefits of intuitive eating. For one, you can learn to listen to your body and recognize its needs. As a result, one is better able to regulate hunger and satiety and no longer be guided by outside influences such as diet plans or societal expectations.

In addition, Intuitive Eating also allows us to eat a healthier and more varied diet, as we are no longer limited to certain foods or food groups. We can learn to rely on and be guided by our body image, rather than being influenced by external rules or restrictions.

or restrictions.

We see there are ways besides the usual self-flagellation celebrated by the "diet craze industry" how we can "do the bikini - figure thing"!

can approach!

Maybe it's something new to accept yourself as you are?

We can also decide to accept that there is no such thing as a "bikini figure" and look forward to the summer without a care in the world.

In the end, clothes are there to fit us, not to fit us into them!

And our bodies are there to carry us through this life.

We can be grateful to it every day for making that possible!

Let's pay attention to what we give our soul, not only our stomach!
