The Importance of Confidence

When I was severely overweight, I did not have a lot of confidence in myself. My friends always told me that I was a great person to be around, fun and loving, but I never once felt proud of myself.

Losing weight has done wonders for my life! Now that I think about it, self-confidence is probably one of the most important things in life. You can't enjoy life without being first confident in yourself, so it is important that you do what it takes to feel confident. It isn't enough to hear people tell you that you are fine just the way you are if you don't believe that yourself. That was how I felt before.

Enjoying life!

After losing weight, i have enjoyed life so much more. I go out more often, socialize and take an interest in the opposite sex. For the first time in my life, I felt attractive. I gained a new interest in clothing, and looking good when I go out - I never enjoyed shopping for clothes when I was overweight, but now I am loving it! I have found a new hobby!

Confidence should be a driving force, it should give you the motivation you need to lose weight. It is an amazing feeling to have confidence in your self image, and to know that your hard work has paid off. It is never too late to start feeling good about yourself, so don't ever think that your days are over! (I used to think that once upon a time...)

Confidence is key!Confidence is key.

Self-confidence is the key to starting your journey. You should aim for this, tell yourself that you will work hard until you are self-confident in your appearance, your body, your image. It is hard for me to convince you or motivate you to do something that is for the benefit of yourself, because I'm not you! Think about it, how many times were you reluctant to do something your parents told you to do because they knew it was good for you?

No one else can make you do something you don't want to do! You need to have the desire, the will to do it. The only thing I can do is tell you the benefits of doing said thind. In this case, there is only 1 main one. That is - to have self-confidence. Once you achieve this, you will find that so many things in your life are that much better, that much more enjoyable. Life is made for living, so don't waste it, live it!!

I hope that my words here will help you achieve what I have. Take some time to read through the articles on my site see how much one change can make a huge difference.
