Busting Through The "Control Myth" (It’s not what you think) (Outweigh) - 4 Things with Amy Brown

4 Things with Amy Brown

OUTWEIGH: One of the biggest myths out there in the Women’s Health ‘world’ is this idea that you should get ‘good’ at trying to CONTROL yourself. 


I can’t even tell you how many women I speak with that WISH that they simply had more willpower or discipline or perseverance to feel 'in control',  and that if they could just figure out how to make THOSE things show up for them, all would be well, and the problem would be solved.


I used to think the SAME THING about my own struggles with my weight and my own inability to stick with whatever the ‘diet of the month’ I promised myself I would follow through on.I came to learn that it was only because I was focusing on the WRONG thing. In fact, I was actually making my disordered eating WORSE! Because willpower and motivation and the ability to ‘grit’ my way through yet another unsustainable diet, were NOT my problems.


The REAL problem was this idea in my head that actually WANTED to ‘get good’ at controlling myself…or to be a better ‘rule-follower’.


THAT was the problem. It was that ‘Hyper-Control Mentality’ that was keeping me stuck, and the fact that I was trying to become MORE skillful in a way of thinking that was setting me up to LOSE and setting me up to FAIL…well that was just the icing on the cake. In this episode of Outweigh, we are going to explore the in’s and out’s of the ‘Control’ Myth….
