How to Keep up Body Positivity Even While on a Lengthy Diet
While you’re following a long diet, body positivity is something that can come and go. When it’s not there, it can be tough to remain upbeat and optimistic about where things are heading. After all, when you’re talking months or years of effort, instead of days or weeks, it’s a lot of work.
Throughout the time I’ve been losing weight, I think about food, exercise, sleep and other factors all the time. They’re always somewhere on my mind – front or back. It’s a lot. Especially because I know why those factors are always on my mind. It’s because I haven’t reached my healthy body or goal weight yet. I’m not there. Sometimes, when I’m not at my best, my mind translates that into “you’re flawed, ugly, and never going to get there.” Not a good feeling.
