Dieting Tests Your Self Worth

Posted Aug 11 2009 9:50am

by Maria' s Last Diet

One thing you will confront when you are dieting is the matter of your self-worth.

Dieting means changing your eating habits and maintaining new habits, both of which present a challenge to your sense of competency. The more competent you feel, the better your sense of self-worth.

Trying to lose weight ratchets up the potential for feeling like a failure.

If you’re a dieter who needs to protect her feeling of self-worth, you might be afraid to try, fearing failure. But if you can risk feeling not so competent for a while, you can take your time and develop the skills you need. That’s how you can feel a heightened sense of self-worth.

Dieting is indeed a test of your self-worth, but it doesn’t mean you have to get a perfect grade. Give yourself lots of opportunity to master the subject, mistakes included.
