Focus on your positive qualities Instead of focusing on all the negatives about your body, focus on appreciating the positives. No need to worry about fitting into that dress or those tight fitting jeans. Keep things in perspective, you may be temporarily over weight now, but you may have beautiful skin and hair that are attractive and who knows- may even the envy of other women. When you focus on your positives, it's another step forward in creating healthy self-esteem. Follow in the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey Once she realized she wasn't her body, she freed herself from the battle within herself. Despite her plush size, she is still loved and revered by the masses. So next time you look in the mirror, say to yourself, "I'm beautiful just as I am." And whenever you start feeling insecure, just remember- you're not your body.
1. I Don't Want The Dieting Industry Making Money Off Of Me In 2012, the U.S. weight loss market forecast for 2013 was expected to reach $66 billion dollars. While that would be all well and good if places like Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig were being legit in their cause, but sadly, for us, it's just about them making money by setting up systems that the dieter can only get so far in, before they fail. I’d rather spend my money on other, far more important things like… pizza and shoes.
