Self-Acceptance is Key to Lifelong Weight Loss
Pro-tip: Exercise and food intake aren’t the most important part of losing weight.
Not if you want to keep it off.
Lasting weight loss requires a renovation of the mind.
Changing the body without changing the mind is pointless, because the outside of you will always come back to matching what’s inside of you eventually. That is inescapable.
Take it from someone who lost over 150 pounds. Twice.
If you’ve been on weight rollercoaster yo-yo from hell, or if you want to get this right the first time, there are 15 key principles you should know about.
One such key is self-acceptance.
If that sounds corny or whatever, well, sometimes the most important aspects of life are corny AF.
“Self-acceptance” is not just a fluffy concept here. It’s a practical tool that produces tangible results.
There’s no sane way forward that I know of, that doesn’t involve laying down the whip we’ve been cracking on our own backs, then meeting ourselves exactly where we’re at.
I know that you’ve been doing your best even when you were at your worst. Do you know that too?
Can you meet yourself where you’re at today, and then go from there?
