The 3 don’ts for a healthy body mindset

Many of us have added a bit a weight in this lockdown. It is tricky to stay active indoors, especially when you have no where to go. I am quite conscious of my weight. I know when I have added a few pounds and I don’t need to weigh myself to check this. Extra weight is something I can feel because I am so in tune with my body. I haven’t added any weight in this lockdown because I eat right, stay active and I usually don’t put on weight to be honest. If anything, I tend to lose more than I gain, which is something I am also working on.

The 3 don’ts for a healthy body mindset

It is super easy to get obsessed with your weight. I know many people who weight themselves regularly to make sure they have not added a few pounds. It is fine to keep track off your weight but you also need to ensure you don’t get obsessed with it all. Here are a few don’ts for a healthy body mindset.

Don’t count your calories

This is something I have never done but I know a few people who count the calories in everything they eat. I think that is taking the whole weight management thing overboard. It is not ok to count the calories in everything you eat especially when you are not overweight.

Don’t compare yourself with celebrities or influencers

This is easily done thanks to social media and blogs, but it is a big no-no because comparison is the thief of joy. Comparing yourself to those with the “perfect body” will do put body mindset no favours. Focus on yourself and stop comparing to achieve a healthy body mindset.

Don’t weight yourself 5 times a day

Worrying over how much weight you have put on will not help you in away. It is fine to weight yourself sometimes while trying to lose but weighing yourself everyday is a no-no, and so is weighing yourself 5 times a day.

At the end of the day, loving all parts of yourself is the most important thing. You should make sure you do what is best for your mental and physical health, and keeping an eye on your right is very important. However, there is a thin line between keeping tabs of your weight and being outright obsessive. It is best to not cross that line for a healthy body mindset.

Have a great week.

  1. You are so awesome! I do not believe I’ve read through something like that before. So wonderful to discover somebody with original thoughts on this subject matter. Really.. thank you for starting this up.

  2. Girl, I recently stepped onto the scale and was shocked back into my regular Weight Watchers routine. I eat well, I just have hormone issues with feeling full. No worries, though. I’ve already dropped 2 pounds. 😉

      • I used to be a size 10. Your not necessarily healthy when your weight is classed as ok. I was too thin then, in a horrific marriage to the ex. I was emotionally unhealthy and I didn’t eat right.

        Today I’m a size 14-16. If be classed as overweight. I’m am far healthier in mind and body than I was back then.

        I’ve had to accept now at 50 + that our bodies and metabolism change too. To be comfortable within yourself is so important.

        It takes alot of inner work to get to a stage of not needing anyone else opinion to validate me

      • Being comfortable with yourself is the most important bit. You are right. I know some very slim people who are not as healthy as you would think.
