When you gain weight you feel terrible about yourself. Maybe you have a spouse who ignores you, or worse yet, makes fun of your weight. Being really overweight and zero self confidence go hand in hand. There are some people who are overweight and are feeling so down and out that you just don't know how to reach out and help them.
There are so many reasons why someone has gained weight, but there are a couple reasons why it's so important to lose the weight and maintain the weight loss. Probably the most important reason is for your health. Plain and simple. The second reason is to improve your self confidence.
In order to gain self confidence you must take baby steps. Read up on health consequences for being overweight and face those hard facts head on. No more putting your head in the sand and thinking a heart attack, for instance, won't happen to you. It's very possible it will happen to you if you don't lose weight.
Now you are ready to lose weight so you can start feeling confident and good about yourself. Please don't starve yourself and lose weight the wrong way. If you do a fad diet, you may lose the weight, but you most certainly will gain it back, plus some. Really overweight and zero self confidence need to be a thing of the past, but you need to lose the weight the correct way.
To get started, as unpleasant as this is, think about how you felt that time you couldn't fit in the airplane seat. How painful that must have been. Or how about the time a group of teenagers pointed and laughed at you as you were walking by. When people make fun of an overweight person, they are ignorant and lack social skills to say the least. Anyway, if you think about some hurtful moments in your life due to your weight, although it will make you feel sad, it can also be empowering and a helpful way to get started.
It's time to turn it around. Close your eyes and picture yourself thin and actually feel how that will raise your self confidence immediately. What an incredible feeling and to think you can lose weight and feel this way every day.
