Your body confidence masterclass

Why learning to accept and respect the body you’ve got now can have big pay-offs for your slimming campaign

When you first made the decision to lead a healthier lifestyle, chances are your body confidence was pretty low. Whether it was the way your body looked, how it stopped you living life to the full, or the health problems it created, you knew the time had come to change. And it makes sense to think that by getting in better shape, you’ll feel better about yourself. The truth is, feeling better starts from the inside out and building body confidence can start now – it doesn’t matter what size you are, or where you are on your weight-loss journey. And improving your body confidence has a double benefit – you’ll feel happier and improve your chances of reaching and maintaining your weight-loss goal.

So even when you’re dropping dress sizes and on the receiving end of compliments, deep down, you still feel the way you look is unacceptable. It makes sticking to a healthy eating plan extra hard. After all, if you don’t value yourself, why would you invest time and effort into taking care of yourself?
