The battle between the body and the wardrobe is a real issue for many women. It often creates a weight obsession that makes life stressful when getting dressed each morning.
Staring at the closet, the thoughts start circling around the brain like…
EW, I hate everything in my wardrobe because it all makes me look fat…
I don’t even know what to wear to make myself look good anymore.
The Negative Abyss Of Weight Obsession
Eventually this self talk starts to spiral. And although it becomes a whirl of negativity centered around getting dressed in the morning, the low self esteem it creates is carried through the entire day.
While changing your body weight may be something you are working towards, or not…
…You can still work on changing the way you see your body so it doesn’t create so much stress for you each day.
Weight Obsession Is A Head Game
