Love Yourself For Summer Weight Loss

Jun 30, 2008
There are plenty of weight loss programs available out there. They'll tell you that you need to eat one thing but not another; they'll tell you that you should do one exercise a certain amount of times. All of their advice and guidelines do make a bit of sense, however, something that all of these programs lack is a key that will help you to unlock your weight loss success: you have to love yourself.

No matter what weight you are at currently, you have to realize that you can do better by loving yourself first and then following a weight loss plan! You have to love yourself in order to stay disciplined for the goal of reaching your ideal body weight, physique, and fitness level.

To start a successful weight loss program, first you must accept your body as it is right now, with whatever flaws you think it has or however many pounds overweight you think you are. Accept your current body for what it looks and feels like. If you can love your body now, you can love it after you lose the weight! And you'll feel even better about losing the weight too!

Second and equally important, lose weight for the right reason. Lose weight because it is for the benefit of your own health and well-being, not because of what others may think about you or your body. Ignore those who might criticize you. Don't let them influence the way you feel about your own body. Go out and socialize! Enjoy life without worry!

Set your weight loss goal for yourself. This requires a little bit of selfishness, but it has to be done if you want to see success. Do you think Aunt Molly really cares if you do or don't eat her 90th birthday cake? Stop making excuses. Stop trying to find excuses. Just set that goal and aim for it no matter what happens.

Distractions will always be part of your life, but the key is learning how to efficiently use your time and avoiding distractions that don't directly contribute to your goals. You may have to stop watching American Idol for a season...so what! Is watching a T.V. show more important to you than achieving a worthy, long-lasting goal?

Once you learn to love your body the way it is, you will be able to naturally and more easily lose the weight that you want because everything that goes into losing weight, like dieting and exercise, will come more easily to you. Soon enough, loving yourself will make your weight loss program turn you into a healthy and, most importantly, happy individual!
