Start by considering the things that you do before you start to feel the worst. If watching television makes you feel bad, stop. If some people make you feel bad, avoid them. Keep positive people around, and write down three good things about yourself each day.

You are not the center of attention you think you are; none of us are. Most people are to caught up in their day-to-day lives that they don't pay attention much attention to others. If you do find people being judgemental, remember that it's their problem, not yours.

The best way to gain confidence in loosing weight is to a set a series of small goals and then accomplish them. If you try to do too much too soon, you will probably fail and get discouraged. So choose something simple to start with, like no more soda or chips, and work from there.

The most difficult step if a weight loss compaign is the decision to actually start. Once you have committed to the diet changes and extra activity that is required to create a calorie deficit, set up a plan that you can follow for an extended period of time. Losing that first pound will encourage you to continue.

Answer by  advice101 (12)

im not horribly overweight, but i have low self esteem & cant find the motivation in myself to actually do something about it. i talk alot about what im going to do, and then it all just becomes empty promises to myself. ~ advice 101
