The good news: You can learn to like your body and more than double your chances of getting slimmer.
In three simple steps, we show you how to boost your body appreciation shed pounds with ease, and get your best shape ever!
You walk every day. You watch what you eat. So why are you still struggling to lose weight? The answer may be all in your head.
Step 1 : Respect your body
People who worry about how their body looks often avoid the very things that can help them look and feel better, such as exercising and developing better coping skills. Here’s how to befriend your body.
Get comfortable with your reflection.
Instead of cringing every time you see yourself, start accepting yourself. Slowly acclimatize yourself to the image in the mirror by spending a few seconds a day looking at your body clothed, then unclothed.
Face your fears
It’s common to avoid situations that make you feel worse about yourself, such as shopping for clothes or going to parties. Feeling better about yourself requires facing those situations. Pick one thing you avoid, such as wearing a bathing suit, and take small steps to conquer that fear. First, just buy the suit. The next day, wear it around the house 10 minutes. Later, wear in front of a friend. Soon, you’ll feel comfortable enought to swim laps or take part in an aqua aerobics class.
If you had a friend who said, ‘What a big butt you have!’ every time you saw her, you wouldn’t remain her friend. Don’t tolerate that treatment from yourself either. Every time you start putting yourself down, stop cold. Instead, encourage yoruself as you would a friend. Say, ‘Yeah, my shape isn’t what I would like, but I’m taking steps to change it. And that’s a positive thing.
Ditch the magic number
Don’t get wrapped up in a number on a scale. Give yourself an acceptable weight range between 5 and 10 pounds, so you can have healthy, normal weight fluctuations and still feel good about your body.
Hold your head high
When you’re busy thinking your thighs are too big, you assume everyone else is thinking that too, so you feel self-concious. But people never judge us as harshly as we judge ourselves. If you hold you head up, smile, and project a healthy, confident person, that’s what they’ll see and that’s how you’ll feel.
Step 2 : Accept your power
Consider this: In one study, beginning tennis players who were told that they could improve their game by trying hard and practicing scored consistently better than those who were told that poor performance meant they lacked the innate ability. “If you believe you have bad genes, you’re less likely to succeed than if you believe you have the power to control your actions, your attitude, and, consequently your weight,” says study leader Robert Singer, PhD, chairman of the exercise and sport science department at the University of Florida in Gainesville. It’s all about developing what psychologists call “self efficacy” a big word for believing in yourself and your power to do what needs to be done. Here’s how to boost yours.
One quick way to stop the negative voices in your head is to simply tell them to quiet down. Every time your internal voice starts saying, ‘I’m too fat’ ‘I’ m too uncoordinated’ ‘I can’t do it,’ answer back: ‘That’s enough. I can do whatever I put my mind to.”
Write your resume
Confidence changes from situation to situation. It might be high int he office, yet low at the gym. Your goal is to transfer all the assurance you have at the office to your fitness plan. Think of it as writing your resume. You don’t always have the experience a job calls for, but you do have the skills. Write down the skills you have to succeed. List attributes such as ‘I’m a hard worker’ ‘I manage my time well’ ‘I’m a fast learner’. Then use these skills to succeed at your fitness programme.
Think of developing confidence like building a house with a strong foundation brick by brick. Calling a gym that interests you is one brick. Going to observe an aerobics class is another. Don’t disregard all these little steps: Applaud yourself for making progress.
Find new friends
The more like minded people you have to support you, the more confident you’ll feel, and the more likely you are to succeed.
Step 3 : Get Moving
In roder to boost your body image, build your confidence, and get a better body, you need to be active. Here are some tips to get you started.
Begin with a simple programme such as walking if you can’t to face the stress or embarrassment of a groups setting in a gym.
Start in first gear. Picture a ladder, with your big goal at the top. Develop short-term goals for each rung on that ladder. If your ultimate goal, for instance, is to walk 45 minutes, make the first rung a 10 minute walk, and then work your way up.
Focus on bonuses. Exercise’ benefits go way beyond cosmetic. When you establish a goal to lower your blood pressure or your cholesterol, for example, you have something besides your clothing size to measure your progress and you’ll feel better about your body on another level.
Seize those seconds. Doing something is always better than nothing. It all adds up in the long run. Even if you exercise for only 10 of your usual 45 minutes, mark it on your calendar as a day you worked out. Being consistent will make you feel better about yourself and help you lose weight.
