With obesity being at an all-time high there’s no doubt that many people could benefit physically and emotionally from losing weight.
That said, it’s disturbing that the media continues to flood our lives with the constant onslaught of fat-shaming advertisements. Commercials, television shows, social media, and printed propaganda are responsible for much of the negative attention; making millions of people hyper-critical of their bodies.
You will never be able to achieve or maintain a healthy balance until you appreciate and respect yourself just as you are. If you would like to learn how to love your body and lose weight right now, here’s where to begin.
While you’re busy working on the physical part of you, you must also address what is going on inside. How many times have you heard the stories of someone losing weight and still not being happy?
Reclaim your unique being and honor your perfect spirit by first acknowledging who you are and what you have to offer this world. Regardless of what you think you see in the mirror, I guarantee you that your friends, family members, and co-workers see an entirely different image.
At all times, your divine being should be treated like a superstar. Offer your body only the freshest and most wholesome foods.
A lot of people say it costs too much to eat healthy, I disagree. The average American family spends nearly as much money on fast food as they do the groceries. Stop making excuses for why you can’t do something and start focusing on why you can. Use common sense, seek out healthy foods, read nutrition labels and don’t buy into slick advertising gimmicks.
Make all of your food choices count by consistently feeding yourself love, and only love right now!
Do you know the difference between emotional hunger and physical hunger? Are you an emotional eater?
While the signs may appear to be identical there are a number of traits that distinguish emotional hunger from physical hunger. Learning their unique characteristics will enable you to take charge of your eating habits; this knowledge and awareness will assist you in preventing emotional eating episodes.
Identify your problems and direct your strength and desire for health and wellness toward solutions. If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change. Remove anger, regret, resentment, guilt, blame, and worry; then watch your health and life improve.
Self-talk isn’t just mindless chatter, it determines how you view your life and what you believe to be true about yourself.
Like food is to the body, self-talk is to the mind. Don’t let junk thoughts echo in your head; stop focusing on what could go wrong and focus on what could go right. With practice your self-talk will contain less self-criticism and more self-acceptance; if your compassion doesn’t include yourself it is incomplete.
An affirmation is a simply worded positive statement asserting something to be true; it should be a confident and clear-cut declaration to a healthy new you!
Your journey to health and wellness begins by believing in yourself as you already are. Incorporating positive words, thoughts and actions into your life you can learn how to love your body and lose weight right now.
