As you are losing the weight are you also experiencing greater satisfaction with your life? Are you feeling more positive about your body? Are you more confident because you are showing yourself that you’re capable of doing something that has always been so hard for you?

If so, these are the very factors that could help you stick to dieting and get to your weight-loss goal.

But look at it this way, too. What if you didn’t have to wait until you were losing the weight to feel good about yourself, have a more positive body image, feel more confident because you’ve done lots of things that were hard for you? Would feeling good about yourself before you tried to lose the weight help you lose the weight? Would it help you stick to your weight-loss diet plan like never before?

Let us know which way this has worked for you: feeling as good as you can about yourself before or beginning to feel as good as you can about yourself as a result of.
