I don’t know the answer to that question… I don’t think confidence by itself makes you lose weight… But I think that relaxing and being more confident about your decisions helps you stay on track with weight loss! I am feeling it! In the days that fear took over me and I felt like I couldn’t eat ANYTHING because I was sure I’d gain weight even from just looking at the broccoli… I tended to either stay or gain some weight… even if just a little bit… I think stress is something to get rid of when you’re trying to lose weight… and confidence should replace it!
When you know you’re doing the “right thing” and taking the steps you need to take to lose weight… there should be the peace of knowing that eventually your body will start to show it and respond to it! I used to freak out at any increase on the scale and I am not saying it’s never going to happen again (I sure hope so) but I think I am learning to be more confident and trust the fact that I actually NEED TO eat in order to lose weight… such confidence and trust is actually giving me the freedom to play around with the food and with the calories I consume… to do things like “save calories for later” or just burn it all with exercise!
I don’t know if I am making any sense… the thing is that I feel somewhat liberated even by the things that I used to think were restrictions! Like calorie counting and exercise! Those are great tools that are making me take charge of my health and my weight! Interesting!
So… here are yesterday’s numbers (I try to share them every day for accountability and self discipline!)
