I’m about to embark on a fairly controversial topic. That topic is loving yourself and being overweight. It’s a fairly complicated topic so I’m only going to touch on a few main points. First of all I want to make it clear, I’m overweight and I don’t intend on offending anyone. I apologise in advance if I do that.

DOES WHAT YOUR HUSBAND THINK OF YOU NAKED SABOTAGE YOUR WEIGHT LOSS?
Do you ever stop to think what your husband or partner might think of you naked? I do, all the time. I’m really not convinced he can really like what he sees. I don’t think this is because I have low self-esteem or anything like that, but I think perhaps he and men in general are consistently inconsistent! They appear to like all women, proving the common denominator is being a woman not the size of your butt or boobs! Of course women and men think differently in how we view our own attractiveness but can this be affecting what you do to lose weight?
Do you eat when you're bored? I eat when I'm bored! I also eat when I'm sad, lonely, angry or happy. You name the emotion and/or situation and I could probably eat something! Of-course none of this is a problem if you're happy with your weight and constantly only eat…

That’s because it doesn’t come as naturally for the overweight and it requires a lot of focus. There’s only so much you can focus on and it’s just so much easier to not worry about avoiding the carbs, going to the gym, not eating junk food or whatever you find works for you.
So how about a different attitude, that will take all the stress out of worrying about weight gain this Christmas. Let’s not focus on avoiding anything. Let’s not focus on eating healthy or even focus on losing weight at all. How about you focus on simply NO weight gain this Christmas! Just keeping it level until all social commitments, and everything else you have to do, has gone back to normal. Let’s work with our human weakness of temptation of all yummy foods and just aim to focus on losing weight AFTER Christmas. Maybe even after New Year. Decide on when you’re going to get back to losing weight and stick to it. In the meantime follow my best 5 steps to keep you at your current weight (and not a gram more) until that date.
