What are the telltale signs that you’re putting too much pressure on yourself to lose weight? The signs of pressure may be so much a part of you that you may not recognize them. So go ahead, take stock of yourself. Are you or are you not putting undue pressure on yourself to lose weight?
A sure sign that you’re under pressure is that you feel guilty. What’s the pressure point here, you might ask? Guilt is guilt. Not so. Guilt is the result of believing you did something wrong, something you shouldn’t have; or not doing something you should have. You didn’t lose all the weight you wanted to. You didn’t lose any weight. You went off your diet, yet again. Guilt. Guilt. Guilt. Pressure. Pressure. Pressure.
A second cousin once removed from guilt is regret. You should have, but you didn’t. You shouldn’t have, but you did.. Regrets, regrets, regrets. Pressure, pressure, pressure.
What other pressure signs can you think of? What about the old standby “being good?” How many times have you put the screws to yourself because you weren’t “being good when it came to losing weight?” Then, of course, there’s your self-esteem. Just think of how many women suffer from low self-esteem because of their weight. One more familiar sign of putting pressure on yourself to lose weight and then it’s on you to come up with a few more of your own. You are disappointed in yourself, sorely disappointed, for being so heavy in the first place and then not being able to lose this weight the way you know you should.
Now it’s your turn? What are some of the telltale signs that you’re putting undue pressure on yourself to lose weight?
