Why the clothes you wear can make a big difference to your weight...
You put on your favourite pair of jeans...and...they are TIGHT. I mean really TIGHT. You have to fight just to get them up one leg, you feel them clinging for dear life onto your thighs, you finally get them up and can barely walk they are so tight - and yet you keep them on, waddling around all day - because they are your FAVOURITE pair of jeans.
Well - wearing clothes that are too tight/small or that make you feel frumpy and fat - can actually have a detrimental effect on your health goals. If you want to eat healthily and lose weight but are then walking around in clothes that constantly remind you that you have put on weight or that make you feel bad about yourself - you are constantly going to be thinking “I am too fat”/ “I need to lose weight” /“I am unattractive” - and guess what you’ll eventually turn to in order to cope with these negative feelings? - Yep that’s right - some (probably very unhealthy) food.
I have seen my clients get trapped in this vicious cycle time and time again. When they feel fat and unattractive - they turn to food to make themselves feel better. It is only when they boost their self-esteem and have more confidence in themselves and their bodies - that they are actually able to reach their health goals.
So if you ever needed an excuse to go out and get a new wardrobe - this is it! You need to wear clothes that make you feel amazing, attractive, confident EVERY DAY! - When you are feeling more positive you are much more likely to want to make better food choices - to take care of that amazing, attractive person you see staring back at you in the mirror.
