Patience = inner strength.
And you need a lot of it to stay on the slow long road of weight loss. Every breakthrough in lifestyle change you make, no matter how small, should be thought of as an extraordinary achievement. Because all those small accomplishments add up to THE BIG ONE.
If you especially have a difficulty with patience, its definitely something to learn, which can totally be learned, but to help accomplish your goals in the mean time, setting small goals & rewards along the way, will help a lot to get you there.
The reason i’ve decided to love myself instead of hate myself to attain my weight loss is because;
You can accept who you are, what you look like, and how much you weigh right now and still be determined to change what you dont like about yourself.
When you’re no longer struggling against who and what you are, you’ll be more effective at making changes because you’ll be starting from a more posistive, clear- minded place & will be able to make more clear-minded decisions (concerning food & exercise, weightloss)
BECAUSE no matter how well you can do something, no matter how successful you could be at losing weight or getting fit or developing a healthier attitude towards food, you have to believe in yourself and expect success, or you most likely will not succeed.
Makes perfect sense.
You are everything you have the potential to be, if you give yourself the opportunity to reach that potential.
When you accept yourself, you stop comparing yourself to other people. There is such a thing as healthy competition, but only if it helps to move yourself forward.
As you begin to accept yourself, you…..
-stop struggling to win approval from others
-become more independent
-live your life to please yourself, not to please others
-show your flaws to others and expect them to love and respect you anyway (if they dont then thats their problem)
-are less afraid of failure
Setting boundaries is a way of telling yourself and the world;
I deserve to be respected.
I am working very hard to rid my life of food problems & being overweight.
And i am entitled to my success.
Food has been controlling my life for years. Now its time to decide and take back whats rightfully mine. Me. I choose whether i want to eat it or not, i can throw it away, i dont have to buy it, i dont have to look at it, i dont even have to think about it!
I can feed my body all the healthy food i want, so i can have all the healthy body i want, and ultimately all the healthy life i want.
Dont let the fear of change prevent you from:
letting go of self-destructive behavior
and truly enjoying the rest of your life.
You have the entire choice of either choosing to make that happen or not.
This fear of change prevents me from letting go overeating, bingeing, and self-hate. But i have a choice to simply say “im done” when i am full, and throw all the garbage food away, and give myself a big hug & say i love myself & i will do anything & everything to make myself beautiful & happy.
The first step to successfully lose my weight is…………… dadadadadaaaaa!
With that, i will stick through any diet and any change, because if i love myself, i will do anything for myself. No matter what it takes.
The first step to overcoming fear, is to recognize it and stare it right in the face so you can become desensitized and move on from it.
-Fear of success. You might say you want to lose weight, but you might actually be afraid of becoming a thin person. What if you lose weight and you dont like the way you look? What if others dont like the way you look? How will you act when you’re thinner? How will it change your life? If you’ve been overweight for a long time, your weight is familiar to you and comfortable in its own way.
-Fear of failure. What if you don’t reach your weight loss goals? What if you reach them but cant maintain them? Some of the best lessons are learned the hard way, by falling down, picking yourself up, and trying again.
Ughhh, im not gunna get the “omg did u lose weight?” till like the end of january next year =( bc i failed at accomplishing anything first half of freshman year, but promise to have reached my goal before the end of freshman year. It will not be like my four years of highskool, bc i wished that i did this my freshman year of highskool, & i have another chance with this freshman year of college!
