SELF ESTEEM & WEIGHT LOSS: 7 Tips To Boost Your Self Esteem and Lose Weight at the Same Time
Setting a weight loss goal and not achieving it over and over and over again is really frustrating. It’s not just the food but the hidden mental commitments that keep the back and forth going. Time to cross that threshold and achieve your weight loss goals and build confidence.
And you do want to get rid of weight and gain confidence right?
Here are 7 tips on how.
#1. Listen To Your Self Talk
The part of your mind that wants to slim down and that sets the goal to lose weight is not the same part that carries out that goal to completion. The part that helps you achieve the weight loss is the programming in your subconscious mind. These programs can be identified by listening to your self talk. Carry a small notebook or small recording device around with you and write down or record what you hear your internal voice saying about yourself, others and things.
#2. Be Happy With The Present you
Don’t wish to be anyone else than who you are right now. Limit how often you give your attention to the person you want to be in the future and focus on the person you are now. Allow yourself to be content with who you are being in this present moment.
#3. Embrace All Your Emotions
Suppressed emotions are stored in the body as emotional baggage. Much of weight loss is in your mind. Shedding emotional baggage improves your health and your relationships. Allow yourself to feel everything. This gives you access to your emotional weight baggage so that you can process and shed that emotional baggage and the weight that is tied to it.
#4. Do What Pleasures You
What lights you up? What do you desire? Did you realize that what pulls you won’t just make your day but will take everyone else higher. Yes, that’s right. You surrendering to what brings you pleasure not only enriches you but enriches everybody else too. So stop feeling guilty about it and enjoy what brings you pleasure.
#5. Do Something New
Stretch your capacity for change by challenging the fear of the unknown. It mentally assist you to make the changes you are desiring in your body. The stimulation of the “new” invigorates you and helps you also stay on track with your healthy eating and exercise choices.
#6. Be Straight Forward
Dare to speak your mind. If someone invites you to eat out and you know it will compromise your decision to lose weight, tell them no. Don’t concern yourself with whether their feelings will be hurt. Concern yourself with how you will feel after compromising your values. Be direct with people about other areas of your life as well.
#7. Don’t Compare Yourself
The majority of the images in print media are perfected by airbrushing. Even the models being portrayed in those images can’t look the way they do on those covers, so why stress yourself out because you don’t? Actors have personal trainers, assistants, and chefs to show up on the big and little screen looking “perfect” but how often do we hear about these beautiful people entering rehab for addictions or worse the news reporting their untimely death? If how they looked was so fulfilling, why are they searching for something outside of themselves?
