          Your Weight Locus of Control

          September 30, 2003

          To help you clarify the thought patterns that may be holding you back from your weight loss goals, try doing an internal audit. Your weight locus of control (WLOC) reveals your mindset about who or what you credit or blame for the shape you’re in.

          Identifying your primary weight locus of control is important, because once you know what it is, you can exercise greater control over your thinking, feelings, and behavior. You’ll be awakened to powerful resources at your disposal — resources that can help you finally achieve your weight loss goals. You’ll be able to stop destructive behavior such as overeating, bingeing, on-again, off-again dieting, and you’ll have a new measure of self-control over your mind and body.

          Click here to take Dr. Phil’s weight locus of control questionnaire.

          For more on what your scoring means, and for advice on how to change your mindset and faulty logic, go to Chapter 4 in The Ultimate Weight Solution: The 7 Keys to Weight Loss Freedom.
