I’ve had some major insights this week, mainly revolving body image and confidence. For the longest time, I tried to look like someone I’m not. And I bet I’m not the only one who tried either. Naturally I did some research on why this is and here are some facts and startling statistics.
First, what is body image anyway? Body image is someone’s perception of what his/her body looks like and it’s an assumption of other people’s perceptions as well. Friends, families, societal pressures and pictures expressed in the media influence this image perception.

I remember the beginnings of my fitness career. I played the dangerous comparison game. I would admire my colleagues and fitness friends’ bodies and secretly wished I looked like them. When I would teach my group fitness classes, I would look at my self in that classroom mirror and feel horrified in the body I was in. I would attend workshops and trainings to better my craft and found myself deeply jealous of my classmates who had “the better bodies.”
Can you relate?

Giving up too soon. Giving up when the going gets tough. Giving up and getting upset, lashing out on others, and becoming the victim.
Perhaps it’s why we live in a society that is all about “wanting what we want and wanting it NOW.”
Our egos do the talking. It’s never our fault but the fault of someone else or something else…an outside circumstance.

I can sense the judgment in your thinking. I can hear your inner critic saying “but if weight loss isn’t my goal, then what is?” How dare I even make such a claim?
But before you judge and criticize allow me to story-tell.

You hear it all the time. “I really need to start exercising but it’s so hard, I can’t get myself to do it.” And you get jealous of the people who make exercise a consistent routine. They make it look so easy. You cringe at those fitness Instagram selfies and secretly wish that was you posing in front of the mirror, arms up flexing those biceps and even lifting that shirt showing off your bikini abs. (Those still get to me too, you are not alone!)

Who knew that when you become vulnerable and state your position on a current “tabloid” event publicly, you’d get sought after by HPL. As soon as I hit send on my newsletter, I received an email from them asking to be a part of an expert panel discussing Dr. Oz’s controversy.

Poor Dr. Oz!
I’m sure you’ve seen the latest in the news. Dr. Oz got GRILLED!!!! Reading the news prompted me to give you The Fit Fem perspective on this topic of weight loss in a bottle. I mean ya knoowww I’m super passionate about this stuff.
I don’t believe that Dr. Oz is a mean, horrible man, as the media turned him out to be. Quite the contrary, I think he’s an alright fella that tries to do right by the people.
Don’t know what I’m referring to? Here’s the scoop.
