I notice that with these people is a deeper cause. Namely the way they look at themselves or their self-esteem.
These people often have a voice that tells you that they do not deserve to feel good and slender. This voice she hampers to be who they want to be. It is an obstacle to touch it deters successful and lost forever excess weight.
If you believe what that voice says this results in unhealthy lifestyles often associated with binge eating . You will be your self, and usually completely unrealistic.
Fortunately, this is not necessary. If you follow the tips in this article apply not only will positively look at yourself, you will lose weight successfully and more powerful in life.
Let’s start by looking at what self-image is exactly.
Your self, what is it?
It is the image you have of yourself. It tells you what you see in the mirror. It also says how you are as a person, as a partner, as a parent or friend (s).
Consider the following:
- How do you see yourself?
- Which properties belong to you?
- What are you good at?
- How do you feel about your relationship to other people?
- How do you feel about yourself?
- What do you think about yourself?
Someone who feels good about herself and knows who he is beating a self-image and accept themselves in any situation. Do you find it difficult to always accept yourself? Please read on. We will work together to do something about it.
Your self-image and weight loss
When it comes to weight you accept yourself with a throbbing self. Even if you’re a little overweight. You are loving to yourself and does not reject yourself how you look. You are, after all, you and I’m proud of you.
People with a throbbing self-treat themselves healthy diet and a healthy body and will not quickly eat themselves.
If you’re working for a long time to lose weight but it never really succeeded, it may be that your self-image is not correct. This indicates that because you do not like a long time with how you look. You do not accept what you look like, but you are unable to do anything about it. It feels like an eternal struggle. You always have the little voice in your head that you would look much different: slimmer and more beautiful.
Probably you even see yourself as someone who is thick and powerless to do anything. You might even have a negative word with which you approach yourself. I once witnessed a client regularly to herself said she was a bitch, or vetklep. You point out thus enormously yourself and makes you very small and it is not necessary.
What I’ve noticed is that people who do not feel good about themselves and have no realistic self-image, just go more often to eat to feel better. They lose themselves in eating to (temporarily) to feel better. When you eat, your body happiness hormone dopamine, making you feel even better. That is unfortunately short-lived.
After dinner follows these people a great disappointment to himself: “Look at him, I knew you could not.” They attach themselves to the image they have of themselves and this happens time and time again. They end up in a negative spiral where scrap fails . They always have the feeling of dieting as they are just heavier.
Your self-image as a child
Your self-image develops as you get older. It starts very young. How conte nter as a child and teenager are with your body, the more realistic and loving is your self-image.
The more negative things you say to yourself, the more you will believe in it. Your subconscious stores it every time. If you since you’re young talk negatively to yourself and yourself as ‘not nice’ look in the mirror you believe in it and go act accordingly.
Research has shown that people who have a later age at high risk from childhood self-esteem to obesity development. After all, why would you eat healthy if you do find that you are not worthy?
If you have a negative self-image, you do not see who you really are and you do not trust yourself enough. With all its consequences.
One of the consequences of not beating self-image is that you do not believe it will work you to lose weight. You give yourself that healthy slim body is not at all because you do not value yourself estimated.
Let us look a little deeper for.
How is a negative self-image
There are many different factors that affect the development of self-esteem. Your upbringing and the way your parents look at themselves and you will play a major role. If they support you in who you are and affect you positive you will quickly develop a realistic and positive self-image.
The media play a major role. Everyone on TV, the internet, in magazines but also mannequins in stores are usually equipped with a slim body. Because that’s what you see all day, you may be inclined to think you’re fat like you looks different.
Especially when Dutch women are there problems because many of us have a broader construction.
Whatever your self-image, eventually you will be so
If you believe you’re fat and does not represent much, then it is logical that you believe you can not lose weight. You will not allow yourself the food that is best for you.
You are who you believe you are.
It is important to believe in yourself and make yourself great. Estimates value yourself and realize that you can and everyone that you want to be everything.
If you do not know who you are, what you want in life and what you stand for, this is the time to go looking for it. It will give you not only peace and confidence but also help you lose weight .
If you really see who you are and treasure to value yourself, it will be an automatic consequence that you will take good care of yourself.
When you know what you’re worth, allow yourself only diet where you do a favor with your body. With the corollary that it is ready to will go to his natural weight. So you will get the body that suits you.

If you learn to listen to the signals of your body and conscious and teaches food carefully , you will notice that you are paid more and more saturated. You will not quickly eat when you’re not feeling good example.
