Weight Loss: Be Happy With Your Body

It's easy to be unhappy with the way your body looks in the mirror, especially when you are attempting to lose weight. We are all overly critical of ourselves. Even when we look good, we always want to look better. We also see each other every single day in the mirror, often several times each day, so it is difficult to notice any changes made to our body.

Being overly critical of yourself is unhealthy and very harmful to your weight loss efforts. There is nothing wrong with being happy with your body, even if it isn't the body of your dreams yet.

Your body is a gift. It is yours and yours only and it is precious. Your body encapsulates your life. It holds your heart and your spirit. It provides a structure for all you have.

You body should be celebrated, not scrutinized.

For those same reasons, you should treat your body with the utmost care and respect. Do not put anything in it that it will not like. Move in ways it wants to move. Feed it good energy and build some muscle for stronger support.

Treat your body well and it will treat you well.

Be happy with your body while you work to make it happier and healthier. By doing so, it will be much easier for you to enjoy life. As long as you have life, you have the opportunity for better things. Appreciate this opportunity and be grateful for all you have. Then go after everything you want.
