Have you ever allowed yourself to imagine what life would be like if you were thinner?
1. What would your ideal body mean to you in the way of day-to-day life?
2. How might people treat you differently?
3. How might you feel about the new you?
4. Would your love life change?
5. What exactly would make it change?
If you are trying to lose weight through exercise or diet, you most likely have a perception of how your appearance will change. It might help to consider that as your body changes, the way that others perceive you will most likely change too.
How would you move about if you were thinner? Remember, you can be as thin as you want. Would you run marathons? Would you wear incredibly high heels and strut your stuff? Maybe you would want to take up ballet or ballroom dancing.
What sports could you participate in if you were thinner? Would you take up dance, tennis or golf? Would you go to the gym more often just to show off your body?
There are so many possibilities when we use our imaginations. However, women’s fitness requires much more than imagination. It requires the commitment, dedication and perseverance to make positive lifelong changes in diet and exercise.
