Now, we all know that other people’s weight loss stories are supposed to be all inspirational — “woohoo, if they can do it, so can I!”
But let’s be honest.
Sometimes, their weight loss joy – especially if you’re experiencing your own personal plateau – they can make us feel terrible.
Am I right?!
So here are 3 things that you can do when other people’s weight loss joy puts you in a self-sabotaging strop.
1. Recognise that the comparison is a no-win game. (Ever)
Since when was losing weight a competition or a race?
Their weight loss jounrey is about them.
Your weight loss is about you. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
You stick with your own journey.
And hearing about another woman’s weight loss joy is NOT an excuse for you to quit YOUR journey.
2. Persist. Persist. Persist.
Stay committed to yourself.
I know consistency is really unsexy, and it’s not what you want to hear — but it is the way.
Consistency is what separates women who shift weight from those who don’t. If you keep taking old-fashioned consistent action….. Your. Time. Will. Come.
3. Celebrate the small wins
Be relentlessly encouraging of yourself every single step of the journey.
Be RELENTLESSLY encouraging and keep on keeping on.
I hope you found that helpful and I look forward to seeing you next week with another making peace with food tip.
