Have you said “I am fat” to yourself as you get dressed in the mirror? Have you walked past a glass window only to see a reflection of yourself pinching your “troubled” body spots?
Is there a critical chatter in your mind that keeps carrying on saying you’re “disgusted” with how you look saying “how did I let myself get this way?” Does this sound like you?
This type of thinking is destructive. Let me tell you why. What I often see happening is it drives one to a quick fix, losing site of sustainability and even their health.
Rather than thinking about better health and what can come of losing weight, you want a quick fix.
Obsessed with the results rather than better health, a longer life, more enjoyment in everyday activities, or the prevention of chronic illnesses like diabetes and heart disease.
Ultimately this defeated mindset leads to failure over and over again. Right?
The more you are dissatisfied with your weight and how you look the less you want to be active, go the gym, or take a yoga class. You become more sedentary which leads to a negative a mindset.
Feelings of failure and shame takes over your mind. Simply thinking you are overweight predicts future weight gain.
Losing weight might be a result, but it shouldn’t be the goal. Rather, your goals should be small sustainable actions over which you have full control.
For example, did you eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies today? What about trying for more hours of sleep? Going for a walk? Learning to meditate.
Surround yourself with positive people, take a breath and set your intentions daily. This helps you connect with your body.
Visualizing yourself at your perfect weight helps build a positive mindset which is so important to accomplishing this goal.
Until you get to the place in which the number on the scale doesn’t define your self-worth then don’t even bother stepping on it.
