Ok, so the idea of staring at your reflection when you’re feeling overweight may not sound like the most inspirational of moves. But if you’re about to undertake a diet or exercise regime then you should not only take a closer and honest look in the mirror, but even consider photographing yourself in the mirror (yes, naked!).
Setting weight loss goals is easy in theory, but in practice it can be hard to stay motivated. But by regularly photographing your progress – with a weekly snap as well as a weekly weigh-in – you’ll be inspired by the physical changes you’ll see.
Having a phobia of seeing yourself in the mirror because you feel fed up or fat may mean you avoid facing up to the truth by avoiding mirrors. But it’s just like burying your head in the sand hoping things will get better on their own. Take control of your body image, invest in an illuminated bathroom mirror and embrace the changes in your looks as you lose the weight!
