Weight is more than just an indication of lack of self control or poor food choices. Weight can also represent trauma, disease, mental and emotional health.
Trauma such as physical or emotional abuse can cause weight gain. Weight gain due to trauma is the body’s way of protecting us from said trauma.
Disease such as hyperthyroidism diabetes and chronic fatigue can cause weight gain in the form of inflammation and reaction to medication.
Mental causes such as depression and anxiety can contribute to weight gain in the form of using food as a coping mechanism to increase endorphins ie happy hormones.
Emotional causes such as stress and low self-esteem can cause weight gain by contributing to eating disorders such as emotional eating and binging.
