Loving your body at any size and loving yourself just as you are is essential to making long-lasting change. If you don’t love your body as it is, you won’t feed it healthy food and you won’t exercise it. If you don’t love and nurture yourself as you are, you will never be more loving and nurturing. Give yourself the love and care that you so richly deserve with hypnosis for weight loss. Clients in my Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss offices learn self hypnosis so that they can accept their body at any size and begin their journey to a happy healthy body. With weight loss hypnosis you can lose weight and keep it off.
Accepting Your Body at Any Size
WebMD, October 11, 2012: No matter what your scale says, being comfortable in your own skin is up to you. It can be tough, in a society that prizes unrealistic images. But it’s possible, and it starts with what you say when you look in the mirror.
One of the first rules of achieving a healthy and happy body image is to stop allowing “put-downs” in front of the mirror.
“Even if in the beginning that means you have to jump in front of the mirror and shout, ‘You’re awesome,’ and then immediately jump back out, that’s OK.” “The goal is to retrain your brain how to think positively about your reflection and your body.”
Over time, telling yourself that you’re beautiful, even if you don’t believe it at first, will improve your confidence. The psychology behind this technique is called “cognitive behavioral therapy,” a method that psychologists and therapists use to stop negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones instead.
“Faking” confidence will eventually turn bad body thoughts into good ones, though it takes time.
To speed up the process, post notes with positive messages on your mirror to remind yourself of your good qualities. Those notes don’t always have to be about your looks. Jotting down things about your character will help you develop a more positive attitude toward your reflection.
You would never tell your friend she looks fat in a bathing suit, or tell your coworker his arms are scrawny, so why would you tell yourself that?
“Treat yourself as you would treat others, and you’ll find negative thoughts will lessen over time.”
All too often, people get hung up on the number on the scale, rather than paying attention to how they feel. People of all sizes do that, and it doesn’t help.
Instead of focusing on one number — your weight — pay attention to how you feel when you wake up or after you hurry to catch the bus. Also check on all your other numbers, such as blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure. Those may paint a better picture of your health than just your weight alone.
