Often, we look outside of ourselves to try to figure out what we want in life, and losing weight naturally falls into that category. We listen to others opinions of us and allow others to project their thoughts and beliefs onto us. In addition, we try to please others, even at our own expense and detriment. But these factors are a sure path to unhappiness and unfulfillment in life. It’s important to take care of yourself first and foremost and do what’s important for you in life because only then can you truly be happy, and in turn be there for others in a happy and healthy way.
So no matter what you do, you want to make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons, and it’s very important to take this to heart when you’re attempting to lose weight. You’ll find it helpful and beneficial to keep the following in mind as you focus on natural weight loss and your life.
Don’t lose weight for others. Many of us try to lose weight naturally to make others happy; whether it’s a nagging parent, or worried spouse, we often try to please others by attempting to lose weight for them. You should be losing weight for you because it’s important to YOU, not because it’s important for someone else.
Don’t let others’ perceived thoughts of you matter. Our self-esteem often takes a hit because we notice (or think we notice) others staring at us, or possibly putting us down because of how we look. By doing this we are allowing other to project their thoughts and beliefs onto us and at the end of the day, what others think about us shouldn’t matter. What matters most is what you think about you! You are beautiful, whether you need to lose 100 pounds or 20, it doesn’t matter. You are perfection and love and grace and beauty. Remember this as you focus on your weight loss goals.
Trust your instincts and intuition. You are responsible for your happiness and natural weight loss. You know what’s best for you, so trust your instinct and intuition, and don’t let others tell you how or what to do to approach the best weight loss plan for you. Now, asking for help and allowing others to help is different, and we encourage this. But only if it’s what works for you and makes you happy. Surround yourself with positive and supportive people and avoid negativity.
Remember why you want to lose weight naturally. Often, by listening to others and trying to lose weight for others, we often lose or forget or don’t even know the true reasons as to why we want to lose weight in the first place. Again, it’s important to lose weight for you, and understand why losing weight is important to you. Only then will you be able to move on to achieving your weight loss goals, because it’s hard to achieve any goal in life if we don’t understand why we’re doing it.
Regardless of why you want to lose weight, as long as you’re true to yourself and doing it for you, then you’re on the right path! You’re the champion of your life, and you’re the only one who can truly understand and take care of you, so start there, and you’re sure to keep moving forward on the path of success to the new you that’s healthier and happier. Go for it and love it, because you deserve it!
