Let’s face it, there’s a stigma attached to being overweight. Whether it’s the waif-like Miley Cyrus who is in her 20s or the emaciated looking Demi Moore who is well into her 50s, pictures of skinny celebrities are thrust in our faces every day. We are constantly reminded that thin is equivalent to rich, successful, famous, and beautiful. Our culture makes it hard for overweight people to have good self-esteem and confidence. Naturally thin people may not realize this, but overweight people struggle with body image issues all their lives. This lack of confidence and feeling of inferiority makes it all the more difficult to stay motivated about pursuing weight loss. We will break it down for you. We will share steps so that you stay motivated on your weight loss journey and boost your confidence related to your capability that you can actually do it.
Weight loss is much more complicated than just eating less and moving more. Many people oscillate between weight loss and weight gain all their lives, and in essence, end up losing and gaining the same pounds over and over again. The battle is often in the mind. The good news is that weight loss can have a domino effect on confidence. As you lose weight and start looking and feeling healthier, you are more energetic, your clothes fit better, you start getting compliments, and your confidence is at an all-time high. A confident person is more likely to stay motivated about a diet and exercise regimen.
Low self-esteem and lack of confidence lead to stress, and stress is known to increase the level of the cortisol hormone in the body. Cortisol is directly related to abdominal obesity. Break out of this vicious circle. Use these tips and tricks to boost your confidence and stay committed to your weight loss plan:
1. Don’t wait for the perfect weight: Invest in yourself now. Wear nice clothes and makeup to look good and keep your spirits high.
2. Perfect that posture: Slouching shoulders do nothing for your figure. Stand straight and tall to look your thinnest and feel more confident.
3. Trim those tresses: Take the advice of an expert hairstylist. Some styles instantly make your face look leaner, and a trendy new look may be just the lift your confidence needs.
4. Go shoe shopping: Buy a pair of heels that will give you extra height to enhance your silhouette as well as your confidence.
5. Fake it till you make it: Well-tailored clothes that fit well can make you look skinnier than you are.
6. Ditch the tight clothes: Ill-fitted clothes are uncomfortable and a constant reminder of your weight. Wear clothes of the correct size for comfort and confidence.
7. Experiment with your look: What are the styles and colors that hide your bulges? Perhaps layering makes you look slender? Maybe black makes you look lean?
8. Invest in accessories: A nice handbag, a great pair of shoes, or an elegant set of earrings can instantly lift your mood and do wonders for your self-esteem, and unlike clothes, they’ll still be usable when you’ve reached your goal weight.
