“You look good.” I’d rather them say “you look great!”
Think about how you feel when you genuinely say that you feel fine versus when you are able to say that you feel great.
This isn’t a “fake it till you make it” or “act as if mantra,” do the things that will get you what you want.
Some people really are okay being 20 pounds overweight, I’m not. I think acceptance can be used like excuses when it comes to health. I know I have and I don’t want to anymore. I say put the work in and make the change.
