Learn to love yourself and be happy even if you have flaws
You've realized that you're not at a healthy weight. You want to lose weight, but everybody keeps saying really nasty things which makes you upset and makes you want to eat. There are so many issues with being overweight. If you're overweight and want to know how to cope with it, then this is the article for you.
Learn to make better food choices. You need an understanding of what foods are high in saturated fats and cholesterol therefore you can avoid these items which build up in your stomach, arteries, and veins. For example, a yolk of an egg contains 300 mg of cholesterol, so eat the white instead. Eating 10 whole eggs in a week will give you 3 grams of cholesterol in your body. Most fried foods absorb the fats that they are cooked in, so avoid all fried foods.
Use positive criticism as a way to build your self confidence. One way this can be tackled is to see criticism as a way to correct your self and to keep doing the right thing, don't let criticism get in your way.
Find a good support system. Friends aren't friends if they make fun of you. Ditch any that insult you, and find friends who like you for your personality; Someone has got to be out there. Real friends like you for who you are, not what you look like. Always remember that.
Make small goals, then work your way up. If plans and diets scare you, don't worry; Start small and set goals for yourself. Here's an example goal; Walk to school, do twenty minutes of exercise, and don't eat so much for dinner. Once you feel you can cope a little easier, draw up a simple and flexible plan for yourself. Include exercise, meals, and room for occasions. And remember-just because you eat one slice of cake doesn't mean your whole plan is wrecked. You're allowed to treat yourself! Don't starve yourself, you'll probably end up with some kind of an eating disorder, and that's even harder to cope with.
Do something about it! Don't just take insults and get sad about them. Surprise everybody by losing some pounds and one day they may ask you how you did it.
Always have a great attitude!
Lose weight for yourself, not for someone else.
Losing weight takes time, so don't be discouraged by tiny results, be encouraged instead!
Just block all the negative things people say about you. If they think you're overweight, then don't believe it. Everyone is perfect just the way they are and no one needs to be discriminated because of a minor flaw.
When you are told you are overweight, think of it as a reminder to lose some pounds.
Never resort to crash diets. They sometimes work, but you will gain all the weight back, and gain a messed up digestive tract, liver and possibly screwed up kidneys.
