Is This Normal?

by Zen Gray

When looking at the computer, are you sticking out your chin and neck a bit?

Do you sometimes get a pain in the back of your shoulder or neck? (Hmmm.)

Do you slouch?

Is one side of your body stronger or bigger than the other?

Have you ever had low back pain?

Are you getting less than eight hours of sleep?

Are you slightly overweight?

Are you really overweight?

Are you exhausted at the end of the day?

Do you eat to feel better?

Do you eat because you’re bored?

Do you eat because you’re lonely?

Have you gained weight since you’ve been in a relationship?

Have you gained weight because you’re not in a relationship and you want to be?

Do you like wine?

Do you like chocolate?

Do you like pasta?

Do you like pizza?

Have you always had a weight problem?

Have you never had a weight problem before now?

Are you getting older and feel like your body isn’t responding like it used to?

 

Today I had a client ask me if she was normal because she answered “yes” to a few of these questions.

Of course, I told her she was a total freak because the rest of us are eating whatever we want and walking around pain-free in our skinny jeans.
