Learning to love yourself is an important step on the weight loss path.
Maybe you’ve heard this before and thought, “What? How can I love myself in this body? If I love it, I’ll never have the motivation to lose weight!”
Really? When was the last time anything good happened in the world that was motivated by hate?
The answer is never. I can assure you that hating your body has no upside. None. It hasn’t worked yet, right?
Think about this: no one is born hating their body. When you were a baby, you were a rotund little thing, weren’t you? Everyone thought you were so cute! You didn’t even think about what your body looked like during your early years. All you noticed was how amazing your body was and all the cool things you were learning to do with it.
Then you started seeing media images of someone’s idea of what a woman’s body should look like.
You heard people say judgmental things about other people’s bodies.
When exposed to these kinds of images and criticism, it’s no surprise that some people hate themselves and their appearance. But we shouldn’t. Ever. And especially for not conforming to impossible standards.
We can change how we think about our bodies and ourselves. And we must. We must love ourselves as the path to a healthier body.
Listen to learn the seven steps you can take to stop hating your body and start giving it the love it deserves.
