How to Practice Self-Love and Reach Your Weight Loss Goals
August 25, 20152 min read
Losing weight isn't always an easy task. Mostly because changing your ways is hard to do. Eating healthier, working out more, and giving up that which does not serve you takes commitment. Being able to have a workout buddy, a forum to log and share your progression and people to cheer you on can really keep you on track. But at the end of the day, it all comes down to you, and so it is even more important that your biggest fan should come from within.
If you don't practice self-love, you'll most definitely give up on yourself quicker when you don't see the results you want. But if you decide to lose weight because you love yourself, rather than you hating what you look like, you will see your body more as a temple, and tend to it with more TLC. You also have to make sure you don't treat yourself too sweetly, allowing yourself to always feel like it's OK that you didn't follow through like you should have. There's a happy medium to live by, and it's important to find it and execute it for true weight loss success.
1. Treat yourself like you would treat others.
When it comes to your friends, you're careful with your words. You want them to be their best selves, but you don't want to hurt them or punish them. Remember that when it comes to yourself, too.
2. Be solution oriented.
Stop dwelling on what hasn't worked. Rather, focus on all of the progress you've made, and all of the things that have gone in your favour. As far as what's failed? Use that as fuel to continue to shape your journey. (For workout solutions, any time you need them, check out Sweatflix℠)
3. Give up on the drama.
If you don't exercise, if you eat something you weren't supposed to, and all you do is put yourself down for it, you're setting yourself up for failure. You're hurting your overall wellbeing with this stress, and creating a negative outlook which may lead to binge eating or days of inactivity.
What advice do you think allows for increased self-love?
