Don’t Allow Anyone to Destroy Your Positive Body Image

You might feel insecure about your body right now, but it's due to your distorted standard on how bodies should look. The media bombards you with images of beautiful shapes. When you see that what you have doesn't match with the supposed standards, you start to feel terrible.

As a result, you end up starting diet plans that don’t match your needs. You also think about doing exercises that are way too difficult for you. Even without your doctor’s approval, you try techniques to lose weight because you want to hurry in achieving the ideal body.

Before you start going crazy with any diet techniques, you need to understand that not all bodies are the same. Therefore, you can’t allow yourself to be defined by media or other people.

It doesn't mean that you shouldn't take any measures to stay fit and healthy. The point is if you want to lose weight, the goal is to achieve overall healthy well-being. It's not about achieving a body that society tells you to have.

Take the pressure off

It’s already challenging to lose weight even without societal pressure. It’s even worse when you start to think about what other people have to say. Although you can take those words as motivation, it could also swing the other way. You will lose interest because you know you’re never going to have the body other people have.

Seek your doctor’s advice

If you’re looking at the idea of losing weight, you have to seek the advice of your doctor first. You will then receive a diet plan and exercise regimen that suit your lifestyle. The doctor will also provide advice based on the results of medical tests done. You will then feel confident about your chosen diet technique because you know that it’s safe and healthy.

Things could get worse

Another reason why you can't fall for the incorrect depiction of body image by the media is that things could get worse. In your effort to lose weight, you might start to put on weight. You could also try techniques that could put your health at risk. You base your decision on what you see online, and there's no guarantee that it's correct.

You’re already good as you are

You can’t let anyone define you and tell you how you should look. You might not appreciate yourself, but many people do. Besides, all these standards for how bodies should be are unreal. If you still desire to achieve such a body, you can work out, but at your pace. There’s also nothing wrong in trying diet techniques you think will work.

If the plan will prevent you from enjoying certain dishes like the ones served at, it’s not a good thing. You will try an unsustainable diet program that you could soon abandon. When you try any method to lose weight, it has to be sustainable and realistic.
