RESISTANCE TO CHANGING MY OVERT EATING DISORDER BEHAVIORS

Assuming at least a part of you would like to change, select two of your overt behaviors listed and write down what you think is in the way of making any changes. This exercise will help to

illuminate any beliefs, thoughts, or fears, which have now become obstacles in your recovery. Thoughts like, âœI am not strong enough to change ❠can create feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, which can keep you from even trying. If every answer is, âœI’m afraid of gaining weight or getting fat, ❠write that down and then add to your answer what you are afraid will happen if you gain weight. A helpful question to ask yourself might be, âœAnd if that happens, then what â?

RESISTANCE TO CHANGING RECOVERY-SABOTAGING BEHAVIORS

Assuming at least a part of you would like to change, select two of your recovery-sabotaging behaviors you checked off or listed that you would like to change and write down what you think is in the way of you being able to make changes. Again, think of any beliefs or fears you are aware of and try to add what you are afraid will happen if your fear comes true. (And if that happens, then what?)

2. Recovery-sabotaging behavior:

Look at any differences in your resistance to change between your overt vs. recovery-sabotaging behaviors. Is there anything that stands out for you?

Look over your reasons why you are afraid to change. We are sure you can come up with a number of reasons why change is too hard, not right, or not going to work for you. Since we can’t be there to respond personally to your answers, we have included a list of the common reasons we hear from clients about why they can’t or don’t want to change, followed by our responses.

COMMON REASONS FOR RESISTANCE

All our clients have resistance or ambivalence regarding change. We expect this and are ready for it. The following list contains some of the most common reasons clients have given about why they are resistance to change. The truth is we had many of these thoughts too, before we changed our own eating disorder behaviors.

1. âœI don’t feel ready to change. â

2. âœI don’t know how or where to even start. â

3. âœI am too afraid of what will happen if I change. â

4. âœI don’t think I am strong enough to change. â

5. âœMy behaviors are just automatic now and out of my control. â

6. âœI don’t have the tolerance or patience to change. â

7. âœSome people can change, but I can’t. â

8. âœI don’t think that what it takes to change is worth it. â

9. âœI am not worth it.â

10. âœIf I change one thing, people will expect me to change more. â

11. âœMy behavior is not that bad, ❠or âœMy behavior is way better than it used to be. â

12. âœWhy should I change this? Other people do it all the time. â
