So many people, especially women, have a negative body image. This may stem from a limiting belief that you adopted as a child. We all want to be comfortable in our own bodies, but we often lose sight of what the real goal is. Your goal shouldn’t be a number on a scale or a size dress, but a feeling. It’s important to love yourself for who you are. Learn how to break free from your limiting beliefs and love your body on this episode of The Transformation Show.

Do you have a negative body image?

Women want to be comfortable in their own bodies. You may think that you want to lose x number of pounds or fit into a certain size, but what you are really chasing is a feeling. You want to love yourself the way you are. Many assume that by achieving their goal everything will change, but that is never the case. Learn to be happy with the way you are now. The way you think about your problem is really the problem in itself. Discover how to get over your negative body image by listening to this episode of The Transformation Show

Why do you have a negative body image?

Many people, especially women, don’t like their bodies. But actually, it’s not their body that’s the problem, it's how they’re thinking about their body that’s the real problem. Some people equate physical appearance with love. These negative thoughts are limiting beliefs that people have picked up along the way and some have stemmed all the way from childhood. Think about why you have a negative body image, where does this thinking come from? Your pant size or weight has nothing to do with what you are meant to do in the world.

Are you worried about what others might think of the way you look?

Many people worry about what others think of them. But should you really care if someone is judging you based on your looks? These are probably people that you don’t want to be around. If you find yourself judging the way that others look, then maybe you are also judging yourself too much. We have adopted beliefs and thinking patterns that we are not even aware of. Did you adopt someone else's beliefs without even thinking about it? We put way too much weight on our weight and clothing sizes. Even if you are aware of these negative thinking patterns you can still fall into the trap. Listen now to help yourself stay mindful of limiting beliefs about body image.

Love yourself, therefore, take care of yourself

Don’t workout to fix your body. Instead get your body moving out of love, kindness, and respect for yourself. Moving your body is an act of self-care. Negative self-talk will stop you in your tracks, so it is important to recognize it and change the narrative. If you make a change from a suffering state it won't last. A positive mindset is the way to spark a transformation in your life, rather than a quick fix. Find the joy in the journey, don’t just focus on the goal.
