Self-Love & Weight Loss

Self-Love & Weight Loss

Hey there! In today’s blog, I’d like to talk to you about the paradox of self-love and weight loss.

So many people think that if you love yourself and accept yourself if you’re overweight, that’s going to decrease your motivation and make you not want to go and do the things that you need to do to get slim.

But it couldn’t be further from the truth.

The truth is that weight loss through self-nourishment is the ultimate paradox; that by loving yourself as you are right now, you can create the habit change that you’re going to more naturally choose healthy choices for yourself, naturally choose things that are good for your body – because you believe that you’re worthy of having that food, that nourishment, that nutrition.

And you’re going to want to go and do those activities because it feels good for your body. Not as some punishment because you ate a Tim-Tam last night or because you feel like you’ve got wobbly thighs – but because you actually genuinely love yourself.

Weight loss through self-nourishment is the ultimate paradox.

Weight loss and self-love are not mutually exclusive. They are hand in hand. They are teammates. So if you’ve been beating yourself up, if you’ve been being mean to yourself and judging yourself and putting yourself down, it’s time to stop that and start to treat yourself like a treasured friend.

Be kind to yourself. Forgive yourself. If you make a slip-up, be compassionate. And that’s going to help you.

It seems like it’s a backward step at the start, but let me tell you or ask you this question:

How has been mean to yourself and beating yourself up been working out for you? Has it worked?

I don’t think so. In fact, I know it doesn’t work in the long run.

We have lots of programs that actually help you to shift your mindset around this stuff and transform that. But, for now, just start being kind to yourself, and we would love to serve you more and teach you more about how to do this.
