You’ll usually find me talking about how chronic stress can cause hormonally driven weight gain.
But did you know that you can also use stress to your advantage?
It is extremely likely that one of the causes of your chronic stress is actually not enough ACUTE stress.
You see, your primal brain only knows two kinds of stress.
1) Famine and winter (chronic stress)
2) War and wild animals (acute stress)
When you experience chronic stress (even though you have modern world problems), your body still goes into fat storage mode to protect you.
However, when you are in a state of acute stress, your body loses weight to protect you as well – so that you can run away – and fast!
Far too many modern woman face what seems like an insurmountable chronic stress – day in and day out.
Instead of facing those struggles head on (which is scarier), we settle for what feels easier in the moment (dealing, coping and managing)…..after all the devil we know is safer than the one we don’t!
While acute stress can stretch us in good ways that lead to transformation, chronic stress is draining and depleting.
Many people wait until they are under the wire with their chronic stresses…waiting until it gets so bad that the situation becomes acute – and forces us to change.
If you let your situation become dire, you will inevitably face the acute stress you now fear – BUT because you didn’t face it head on consciously – you’re more likely to feel like a victum to it.
Life eventually forces us. It is the universe helping you wake up!
If you don’t give your problems the focused attention they deserve – they will get your attention anyway – BUT not in a way that you will like!
What problems do you need to face in your life now?
Which ones are ones that if you dealt with them head on it would feel like an acute stress – but would ultimately relieve a source of your chronic stress?
We all need support when it comes to chronic stress.
The fact is that if you have chronic stress in your life, you might know what to do – but you don’t know how to get yourself to do what you know you need to do! The fact that you haven’t solved it for yourself is proof of that.

Part of becoming Weightless is not only facing your problems head on, but also doing positive things that scare you!
You know, those things you’ve always wanted to do, but keep putting off because you’ve been ‘chicken-ing out’?!
What is something that both exhilarates and terrifies you?
Whatever that thing is, I can promise you that it is an important part of your journey to becoming Weightless!
For me it was joining a Burlesque troupe!
