Have you ever wondered if being overweight is benefiting you in some way? I heard this question and it really has me thinking. It's meant as a question to ask yourself if you are struggling to lose weight. Using it as a tool to figure out why you may be stuck.

No I really don't think it is benefiting me in anyway. I think that I don't want to put in the work I need to put in, for as many calories as I want to eat. I need to see calories as fuel for my body and nothing more. I am in hopes that this winter when I don't have anything ever to do I go to the gym 6 days a week. That is my goal anyway. :)

I feel safer when I am heavy. I was very thin as a teen and young adult, and I was physically victimized by others. At a higher weight, I feel like no one will want to touch me or hurt me, and that I can protect myself better.

Back in 2008, I was down to a size 10 and I felt very vulnerable. Sometimes I felt like men were looking at me in a way that I didn't like. I think thats part of the reason I put the weight back on, so that men would go back to ignoring me.

For me, the benefit of being overweight is that I feel safer. But I really do want to lose the weight and get back to a size 10. I want to be healthy.

I'm struggling to lose weight because my will power and stress go hand in hand.

As for benefiting, not really. I love to sail, and I know I would be better if I lost some weight.
