Build Confidence

 

Do you ever look in the mirror and hate yourself for what you just ate? Do you ever feel disgusted with what you see? 

 

Do you ever lie down at night and think to yourself “Why did I just eat like that?” 

 

Are you embarrassed to eat in public because you think other people are staring at you and thinking “no wonder she’s fat, look what she’s eating!” 

 

Are you using your “medication” as an excuse as to why you are overweight? 

 

Do you have a lack of sex drive because you would rather do anything else in the world other than let someone see you naked? 

 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are likely suffering from a lack of self confidence. Overweight and obese people have a negative perception of themselves. Many of them even suffer from depression, anxiety and a sense of emptiness.  Looking in the mirror and seeing themselves, can be devastating. So why do you continue to live that way? The simple answer is that you probably feel stuck in this negative cycle that you cannot seem to climb your way out of. 

 

Exercise plays an important role in our self- esteem. When you exercise, it decreases the stress hormone called cortisol and increases endorphins. Endorphins are natural feel good chemicals that boost the mind when released through exercise.

 

By sticking to plan and seeing results, it further motivates us to continue on our journey. Trying on jeans and watching them fall off your body as they no longer fit you anymore, is a wonderful feeling. This would definitely help boost your confidence as you see how all your hard work is paying off. Setting small goals along the way and achieving them, further helps boost confidence. The feeling of attainable achievement helps us feel motivated and gives us a sense of self worth. 

 

When someone has struggled with weight loss for a long time, it is important to set small goals rather than one huge goal. For example, start off by telling yourself you are going to lose 10lbs. When you achieve that goal, strive to lose another 10lbs. It is much more realistic and attainable rather than setting goals like “I want to lose 60lbs and be thin in the next 3 months.” When you have that mindset, the 3 month mark comes along and you haven’t lost 60lbs so you feel like you have failed. This is a huge contributing factor as to why many people give up on their weight loss goals and stop exercising.

 

Believing in yourself has real benefits. If you believe that you can lose weight, you are more likely to actually reach your weight loss goal. But if you think that you're going to fail, you're more likely to quit. So why not train your brain to believe in yourself? You have the strength and the power to achieve anything you want to. And trust me when I say this, IT WILL NOT BE EASY, BUT IT 100% WILL BE WORTH IT!
