Beauty Is More Than Physical Appearance

While it is important to strive for a healthy weight, you should not let your size affect your sense of self worth. Whether your are 300 pounds or 95 pounds, how you feel about yourself is more important than how much you weigh. I’ve known obese people who were happy, confident and full of life and I’ve known thin people who were depressed and hated themselves.

Accept and love yourself at any weight. Being overweight is a condition that you need to deal with like any other disease. Treat it and get better. You don’t hate yourself when you catch a cold so don’t hate yourself if you have extra fat around your midsection.

If you try and fail to lose weight that doesn’t make you any less of a person. You just need to analyze your treatment strategy. You may need to give it more time or you may need to try something else.

Obesity is an extremely complex disease. My last medical doctor was obese. If trained medical professionals struggle with weight loss than you should not take it personally if you are having a hard time. You just have to keep learning and trying new things.

Don’t wait until after you lose the weight to feel good about yourself. Taking charge of your future and committing fully to improving yourself can be like a shot of adrenaline to your self confidence. People will notice and react. Some may be fearful of your new path because it may shine a light on their own faults. If they can’t handle it, let them go – there will plenty of new people on the path to meet.
