I officially heart curvy confidential, a website that many of you will be a fan of already. So I thought I’d add some fantastic advice from the site about shedding weight….
Ok everyone…lets drop that weight!! That’s right, let’s get rid of it once and for all.
If you know me or what I stand for…you may think that I have had a hit on my head, or a change of heart, or a lapse in all that I write and speak about.
I actually mean it. Lets all lose some weight! Oh, it is probably not the “weight” that you may think. I am talking about all of the self-doubt, the degrading thoughts within your head, and all of the other WEIGHT that you pile on yourself when talking about your body and its girth/weight/poundage/pooch/fat…or any other word that you could use to diminish all of the real beauty that you actually do possess. I have been working with, coaching, counseling and teaching people (not only women either) about body issues and self-loathing a lot lately. The topic is always so fascinating to me and continues to be. What I am finding is that many of us pile on the “weight” of carrying around a bad attitude and it is HEAVY.
Self-speak is constantly occurring. Our job is to re-program, if you will, our negative thoughts about what we look like. Why not make the choice to drop the bad thinking and replace with thoughts of all that we actually are that is great and all of the wonderful qualities that we do possess.
So I am suggesting that you drop a few unnecessary pounds of criticism. And not just about yourself, of others as well. Stop looking for the seeming flaws in yourself and point out to yourself all of the beauty of who you are. And begin to notice the truth about the beauty in others too.
Confidence is the best accessory a person can put on, a wise and loving man once told me. I loved that. I still do. I still remember it like it was yesterday and it was many years ago. Look lovingly at your reflection rather than with a critical, judgmental eye. You are PERFECT just the way you are. Remember that. So dress it up, sexify it, strut it, move and dance it, adore it…it being you!
With love, from a “weightless” woman.
Fabulous advice if I say so myself…
