So raise your hand or leave a comment if you struggle with body image. I can imagine every hand going up whether or not you leave a comment. And if you don't, then we hate you. Period.
We have people like Leann Rimes who is to the world losing way too much weight. She says "losing weight is just a way of life."
Or take Kate Winslet, she has curves and she is proud of them. She has lost some weight since Titanic-which is a little disappointing to me because in every interview after the movie she boasted about her curves. But, she is still more of a normal weight.
Then, there's us. The regular people. 63.1% of people in America are obese. So, we tend to look like the pic below or worse. But, we constantly compare ourselves to the women in Hollywood. All of their pictures are airbrushed. Recently, in a magazine article, they showed pics like Kim Kadarshaian not airbrushed and you wouldn't believe the difference. Talk about cellulite!!!
I think the most important thing is to throw away that scale, or use it once a month. An obsession with weight, which I've had since 5th grade gets you nowhere but yo-yoing.
I think eating as many as many whole, clean foods as possible and working out 3-5 days a week will keep you where your body needs to be. And yes, you deserve a treat! Maybe just not once a week!! How about once a month.
All of the girls, I am training are losing weight just running and I have lost 8-10 pounds running and doing the AdvoCare cleanse.
So cheer up, we arent the only ones with flabby arms and cellulite!! Just get out there and do what you can.
How do you feel about your body image? What steps do you take to not obsess and hold a healthy weight?
