We are all hardest on ourselves in regards to body image.
We know our own bad habits, food choices and lack of exercise.
There is no secret, dieting is one of the most challenging components of losing weight.
Every day through advertisement, we are bombarded with unhealthy food choices.
So, we mentally tell ourselves, “I don’t want to be fat, I don’t want to eat fried foods, ice cream, burgers or chips.”
We repeat this in our minds over and over.
Well, guess what happens?
All you’ve accomplished is to think about being fat and eating unhealthy foods – so, you become overweight and out of shape.
You have to change the way you think and your approach to life.
Mentally see yourself as the perfect image desired.
If you have a picture of it, tape it on the bathroom mirror.
Now, visualize yourself repeatedly as that image and create the feeling of it.
Carry yourself throughout the day with confidence as if you already possess that desired image. You’ll be amazed how life will transpire. Remember, we all look different, and it’s wonderful.
Just imagine if we all looked and dressed the same — how boring.
Now, moving forward.
Ladies, whenever you undress, say the words, “These stretch marks are really beauty marks proving that I’m an amazing beautiful mother.”
For men, say “This hair loss and extra wrinkles on my face make me look wise, distinguished and handsome.”
And, for all of us, say, “There is no person in the entire world that looks like me, and I love me.”
