This post is an extension from my previous post: Self-Esteem and Weight Loss
Low self-esteem interferes with weight loss. Its main characteristic is negative internal dialogue telling us we are not good enough.
We are caught in a trap of weight issues that lower our self-esteem and vice versa. It is crucial to start a healthy eating plan as soon as possible, and ignore the voice in your head telling you not to bother as you will fail again. There is a right and sustainable eating plan for everyone so don’t give up searching and trying. At the same time start working on your self-esteem.
These are some boosting tips:
- Be kind to yourself, just like you are kind and considerate to others.
- Set healthy boundaries. Stop trying to please others.
- Accept the person in the mirror, you are on this journey together.
- Practice positive thinking, choose to see the positive side. When you catch yourself having negative thoughts stop immediately.
