Now That’s Just Stupid: Weight, What?
By Debra Taylor
Genre: Self-Help
The F-Word: A three letter word that carries the greatest impact to the
deepest void inside the soul…Fat there I said it.Just the word
alone makes every hurt, pain, failure or haunting memory rise to the
surface and food is the only thing that will quiet the storm.You
don’t have a problem with food! You have problems, issues,
behaviors and you go to food. There is a big difference!WEIGHT, What?
is the third release in the Now That’s Just Stupid, Inc. book
series. It’s a journey through real weight loss using regular,
every day foods only this time you will solve the issues and keep the
food. No one should tell you what to eat, what not to eat or how much
to eat. YOU know how to do that! What you don’t know is how to
solve the reasons why you overeat. Healthy foods and exercise didn’t
make you fat and they won’t make you thin UNTIL you face the
emotional issues underneath the weight. This book will show you how
to use your food to guide you toward your C.O.R.E. issues and take
the steps to solve them.


When Your Circle Gets Smaller

Not everyone that starts with you in your life will finish with you. We often hear this in life situations as we transition from high school to college and college into the grown-up world. But this phrase is never more apparent than when an individual changes their physical appearance.

As much as you may want to believe that your weight is indeed just about you and no one else, you are sadly mistaken. People derive many courses of action when dealing with others they initially meet. The first impression one gives to another tremendously impacts how they are treated in many complex interactions. Women tend to be better at judging non-verbal behavior than men, but it may not be out of knowledge but rather out of the repeated occurrence. Judgment is given and placed on women by both sexes more often, and therefore the value set on appearance can often override other qualities.

Obesity bias occurs within healthcare, employment, community interaction, spiritual arenas, educational endeavors and relationships with and without our knowledge. Studies have been done in marketing that has shown an overweight individual serving you fast food will deter you from ordering large portions. Their visual appearance makes one quickly assess their own and whether or not they should be eating so much. This occurs in a matter of seconds of the interaction.

Still, others have sought out heavy set people for certain positions in a company while others need thinner people for specific roles. Then there is the mighty beast of healthcare. The largest conglomerate of individuals who should know better is commonly understood to be instigators of increasing one’s weight instead of teaching tools to reduce obesity. Many overweight patients won’t even seek health care due to the treatment and ridicule they receive at the physician’s office. Clearly, they are aware they are overweight, and it’s impacting their future livelihood and life expectancy. However, repeating this information in a derogatory fashion with a hope that creating a fear will convince them to diet is not a solution. You can’t scare most overweight people to stop eating any more than you can scare the drug addict from shooting up his or her arm. The problem(s) are not being addressed only the symptoms of excessive food and lack of movement. As a healthcare professional you are just feeding your ego to think that telling them what they already know is helpful. There are broader issues involved that may be out of your expertise thus referring them to experienced professionals in the industry as well as mental health professions is a step in the right direction. Ultimately, it is up to the patient to take the desired steps for their self-care. But when the window of opportunity presents itself for a medical professional to respond to the one seeking help, it should be respected.

Author, Debra Taylor has battled obesity since childhood topping out at
almost 400 pounds before learning to manage her adiction to food. She
now holds a Masters of Science with an emphasis in Applied Behavioral
Analysis and a Ph.D. In Psychology, with an emphasis in addiction.
Her specialty is working with clients who struggle with behavioral or
emotional eating before, during and after their weight loss. She has
traveled nationally and internationally as a motivational speaker and
was Director over several hospital surgical and non-surgical weight
loss programs. While working with tousands of obese individuals she
designed the meaning behind food groups that explain and solve
emotional eating while teaching people to lose weight eating
regular every day foods.
