Weight Loss and Self Criticism: 60 Example of Positive Self Talk

"I am frustrated with diets."

"I have no time to make healthy and tasty meals."

"I am depressed because of my weight." 

"I regain weight easily."  

"I have been fat all of my life and I should stay fat all my life." 

"I cannot lose weight. I don't know how to be thin."

"I have been struggling with losing weight for years."

"My body is trained to be fat."

"I gain weight because I am afraid I will starve."

"I feel in danger if I am thin."

"My parents do not support me to lose weight and thin."

"I attract unwanted sexual attention if I am thin."

Self critic. Can you relate with the above self-talk? A little self-criticism is a healthy means of increasing personal growth but too much can lead to self-doubt and stress.


If you still remember I posted this picture of me and my children last year to discussed about weight loss freedom. I always insecure about myself. I refuse to have my picture taken because my body is fat and ugly. I am the one who would always volunteer to took family pictures so I would not be in them. Or else I would hide behind others or use my children as props to cover my body. My friend thinks I look good in the picture and I just being self-critical.

It's true I'm my worst critic. I hate my body. And I am giving myself critical and demeaning messages. I am too hard on myself.

What do you tell yourself about yourself? 

Self-talk is so familiar that sometimes we don't even notice its existence. Negative self talk can limit you, increase your stress level, bring down your self-esteem and confidence. I realize now that turning negative self-talk into positive self talk is vital for successful weight loss. If you have negative beliefs that you're ugly and fat, you will stay ugly and fat, making extremely difficult for you to lose weight. To release the belief that you are ugly and fat, it is important to change your negative self-talk.

"Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become habits. Watch your habits for they become your character. And watch your character for it becomes your destiny. What we think, we become. My father always said that... and I think I am fine."

― Margaret Thatcher

57 Positive Weight Loss Affirmation

58. I'm happily making weight loss progress.

59. I am feeling carefree handling my situation.

60. I'm willing to try this new exercise. 

This is how I look in tagged picture. My belly is so big makes me look like I'm seven months pregnant! And 77 kg is pretty heavy for my small frame. Mr.Husband took this candid shot last week during a visit to Crocodile Farm. He secretly took few pictures of mine lately. I hope it's because he admired me like the first time. But no, I know this is his silent way of telling me to lose weight. I have gained 3 kg since Christmas.

I have had second thoughts before decided to publish this shameful picture here. But then I decided to pursue because this is part of my accountability. I don't want to look like this anymore in 6 months to come. Yes, I hate the way I look in this photo but I want to replace this negative thought into positive thoughts pattern. "I am strongly training myself to be thin and stay thin all my life." I believe every time you think a positive thought or make a self compliment comment you are actually affirming it as your personal truth.

What do you tell yourself about yourself? Do you let yourself off the hook or do you put yourself under unnecessary pressure?
