|So many of our difficulties, particularly those with losing weight, have strong deep roots in our childhoods. These unhealthy roots often take many years to dig up and let go of. Permanent weight loss usually only comes AFTER much psychological growth and is usually one of the LAST psychological issues to be resolved. Therefore, a longterm CONSISTENT looking at one's personal growth issues is important.
