Treating & Appreciating Yourself in your Weight Loss Journey

In this cruel world of double standards, being heavy is frowned upon by the society. Many people have low self-esteem due to the society’s perception of them as an individual and their beauty. I dare say beauty is not dependent on size, rather on your confidence, if you are confident before weight loss, the same glow will show whether you lose or not. It is important to appreciate yourself in this journey as a way to appreciate, motive and raise your spirits.

As you begin your weight loss journey, you may be thinking of the ways to treat yourself, so you stay motivated and inspired to continue losing. Even though you may see your clothes fitting better than they have in years, it is still always nice to have the occasional reward for your hard-earned work that you have put in. Penn State researchers found in a recent study that the best way to lose weight and stay motivated is by having little rewards.

Motivating yourself with little rewards is one of the best ways to keep going in the intense weight loss journey. So smile and get that massage, Mani- Pedi, or anything else you fancy.


  • Massage

A massage can be invigorating, relaxing, healing or sensual, depending on the atmosphere, the type of massage and the oils.

Massage has been used for many hundreds of years in cultures around the world, from the traditional Lomi massage of Hawaii to the Abhyanga massage of the holistic Ayurvedic system. Whether it is used to offer relief from a sports injury, or to enhance sexual pleasure, the combination of direct skin contact and the use of massage oils can have a powerful effect on your mood and senses.
