Weight loss and self-esteem

Did you know that your own self-esteem may be a contributing factor to some of your problems?

Let’s look at weight loss, for example.

We all know that the weight loss industry is a billion-dollar business annually and who do advertisers target?


To encourage women to join your slimming plan, highlight their insecurities in their ad copy.

“What insecurities are these?” you may ask.

You may have heard of the term “fat shame.”

Women are ashamed to feel guilty even if they weigh a few kilos more than last year.

No wonder so many of them suffer from insecurities.

My advice to women is this:

1 Stop comparing yourself to others

It’s silly to try to be someone you’re not. Instead of trying to be someone other than yourself, you should ask the question, “What motivates me?” and set your goals accordingly.
