"Beating yourself up every time you eat the wrong food or obsessing about what you shouldn"t eat are negative thoughts that can sabotage your weight loss efforts. Your attitude on fat loss is critical. A positive attitude can eliminate dread and make it easier to lose weight and keep it off. Fat loss is easy in that it comes down to the science of how your body works. Fat loss is difficult as it requires hard work, consistency and patience or it is not going to happen.
Like any attitude that focuses on a favorable or unfavorable evaluation, your attitude about your health summarizes whether you feel it is excellent, good, fair, or poor. A positive outlook about losing weight should be to enjoy life as a healthier person. Body dysmorphic disorder is a health condition where you can"t stop thinking about a flaw that appears minor or cannot seen by others. But, you feel embarrassed, ashamed or anxious about your negative body image.
