How many times have you told yourself, when I lose weight, THEN I'll be confident enough to wear the crop top, ask them out, apply for the job, etc?! What if I told you you didn't have to wait until you lost weight to be more confident? What if I told you how you could be confident here, today, in this body?
Confidence doesn’t come from losing weight because confidence isn’t a trait – it’s a skill! No different than learning how to ride a bike or swim. You start worried, afraid, and not that great at it.. but the more you practice, the better you become! Same thing for confidence.
You’re not just going to magically wake up one day and instantly feel confident. Even if you lose weight!
Confidence comes from choosing to practice being vulnerable, showing up as we are (IN THIS MOMENT), and realizing the world doesn’t crumble when we do.
Saying ‘I’ll be confident when I lose weight' is just a distraction from your real problem.. not being okay with showing up as you are. We must heal first. Practice second. And everything else will build.
I invite you to challenge yourself to try something different…
Rather than, ‘I’d be so much more confident if I lost weight,’ – Try, ‘how can I start showing up a little more as me today?’
Because guess what? You cut out the noise when you start showing up as you are. You declare to the world (and yourself) that you are worthy today.
