5 Things You Should NEVER Say To Yourself While You're On A Weight Loss Journey

You've got to be nice to yourself to make progress.

5 Things You Should NEVER Say To Yourself While You're On A Weight Loss Journey
Brianna Moran

Nobody said a weight loss journey was easy. What makes it easier is a whole lot of self-love — negative self-talk will only make life harder.

1. "Ugh, I'm such a fat*ss"

This will not only throw your self-esteem down the toilet, but it will also prevent you from looking at the areas on your body that you have lost weight in.

2. "I had way too much to eat last night at dinner, I have to starve myself today."

Whether it's light-hearted or not (it should never be a joke to starve yourself) it's just a very unhealthy statement. It's not about eating it's about how much food you're consuming and what types of food you're consuming.

3. "I wish I had a body like theirs."

This one I can really relate to because I would constantly compare my body to other girls and I would be so upset if my results didn't end up like theirs. After years of saying that to myself, I finally realized that everyone's' bodies grow and lose weight in different ways, and comparing myself would only ruin my journey to weight loss.

4. "I'm so mad at myself for not exercising today."

Sometimes you will make a mistake while trying to lose weight. Maybe you'll forget to exercise one day because you got busy, or maybe eat an unhealthy choice — the list could go on. However, being super tough on yourself will only stress yourself out on the journey to weight loss. There's a difference between discipline and overdoing things.

5. "It's too hard, I give up!"

Yes, losing weight can definitely be a pain at first, but giving up should never be your solution. It took me five years to figure out what kind of diet and exercise really works for me and that's what I kept sticking to! Nothing is ever as easy as pie. You need to put a healthy amount of work into your weight loss journey!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
