Negative self-talk can actually create neural connections in the brain that perpetuate an unhealthy state.
The bad stuff you think about yourself can cause a body chemistry change that makes it harder to lose weight.
Don't stress yourself out if you have a bad meal, a bad workout, or a bad day.
Humans run from complications or stressors, so stop setting up those roadblocks.
Together, we'll help turn self-loathing into self-loving.
When I was in college, I went from 116 to 169 pounds in
four months. Why? Because I was lonely, scared, and had
low self-esteem. I self medicated with fast food. The fatter I
got, the shyer I got. My confidence plummeted.
One day, I sat in my dorm room, looked in the mirror, and I cried.
That's the day I decided to do something about it. I had to change
the way I presented myself to the world, but more importantly, I
had to change the way I thought about myself.
I stopped eating fast food.
I started walking to school (a total of 40 blocks).
I started reading books about nutrition, whole foods and exercise.
I set goals and checked them off as I achieved them.
The weight fell off...The more I set and kept goals, the
better I felt. This is why I've dedicated my life's work to helping
others find a way to live fitter lives that bring happiness,
worthiness and health.

BELIEVE IT WILL HAPPEN
Hold onto the high you get post-exercise or a great week of diet
instead of holding onto the feelings of failure from inaction or
diet cheats. How you feel about yourself is a choice. Choose to
feel blessed and special. Your actions will reflect how you feel.
Create your own self-worth repair system by first identifying the
issue and then creating a clear game plan for change. Don't
just focus on the scale; focus on the feeling. Imagine how it
would feel to be confident and sexy on a date or being a
respected, confident leader in the workplace.
Even when you feel miserable, make a point to smile. Go
through the motions—people will positively interact with you
and pick you up. The same applies to fitness: you must go
through the motions when you feel like quitting—whenever you
do something good for you, you will reap the benefits of
strong health esteem.
This is how I stay in the game. Humans respond to positive
rewards. They are the best motivation.
When you set a goal, attach a reward to it. For example:
reward your successful 10-day eating and exercise program
by doing something special for yourself.
