Obesity Prevention Tips # 5 – Watch TV Standing Up

Invite your friends over for the super bowl party viewing on your brand new flat screen television. Invite your friends over to watch a newly released DVD.

Only this time, don’t tell them you have put away all the chairs, and they will have to watch tv standing up.

Now you are going to have better conversations, because they will be hardly paying attention to the television. Also, everyone will thank you for being such a gracious host to think about them and helping them lose weight while watching TV.

Body Image and Weight Loss

Many of us struggle with weight loss because of poor body image. Even when the scale shows us losing 10 pounds after several weeks of changed eating habits and a more active lifestyle, our heads are still filled with negative thoughts that we are not perfect. And then we regress into the old self who ate their fair share of ice cream and junk food.

The truth is that no one is perfect. Otherwise magazine wouldn’t have to retouch photos to make celebrities on covers thinner and healthier looking.

Be realistic, don’t go back to the old destructive self because you don’t see yourself as perfect. It takes a lot of hard work to lose even a few pounds, your heart, body and mind appreciates all that you have achieved.

Continue with your weight loss goals, and throw out the distorted body image you have of yourself.
