Weight Affects Self Esteem, Health And Contributes To Discrimination By Susan Megge

The recent Rosie vs. Donald “War of Words” has people across the nation taking sides. Donald’s harsh words regarding Rosie’s weight have many people outraged – and rightfully so. Unfortunately, it seems as though discriminating against those women who are considered “fat” has become the norm and is quite often acceptable in many circles. While I’m not overweight myself, someone with whom I’m very close is. As a matter of fact, she’s my sister – and probably one of the most generous, kind and helpful people I’m lucky enough to know (probably very much like Rosie). It hurts me a great deal to think that people may be snickering behind my sister’s back when they can’t begin to imagine what a beautiful person she is inside. Should my sister lose weight just to become a pleasant sight to others? Should Rosie get in shape to prove she’s more beautiful than Donald (and she is!)? Absolutely not. It’s never – and I do mean never – a good idea to make changes just to please other people. Should overweight individuals make lifestyle alterations to contribute to their own personal, emotional and physical well-being? Well, I think so. In recent weeks my sister has joined me at the gym and I couldn’t be happier or more proud. Not only is she taking steps to become a healthier person, but she’s also ensuring that I’m going to have my sister around for a good long time. You see, discrimination is only a fraction of the problems overweight and obese individuals face, and probably the least of which should contribute to the motivation to lose weight. So many health conditions are a direct result of being overweight. Those women whose weight is more than that which is recommended face an increased risk of developing heart disease (the number one killer of middle-aged women), diabetes and even some forms of cancer. In addition to the risk of more serious health conditions, women who are overweight face other physical obstacles, as well. For instance, simply standing up from a sitting position can seem as though it’s too much work. Heavier women also have a difficult time walking for any length of time because they tend to become “winded” and too much weight on their feet can contribute to pain and swelling. Women who are overweight are also quite self-conscious of their weight and may dread even attempting to find an outfit to wear for a special occasion. Let’s face it – it’s just not fun being the “fat chick” but how can you realistically reach your ideal weight without going back to old eating habits that are so very enticing? I know there’s a good possibility you’ve heard this before, but I need to stress that dieting to lose weight may work and be the answer for weight loss, but sticking to a diet proves quite

difficult for many people. For this reason, avoid telling yourself that you’re on a diet. Rather, convince yourself that you want to be thinner and will take steps that are necessary to reach that goal. This may mean that you’ll eat healthier and reduce the size of your portions, but it’s important to remember that you don’t need to starve or even deprive yourself of the foods you really love. Believe it or not, I spend 7-10 days of every month consuming many foods that are high in fat, calories and carbohydrates. Even though I’m approaching menopause, I’m still experiencing symptoms associated with P.M.S., which include cravings for double cheeseburgers, chocolate and French fries loaded with ketchup. Do I deprive myself of these foods? I’d like to say that I do, but to be honest, no, I don’t deprive myself when the craving hits. Well then, how is it that I remain in a size 4? I exercise regularly, and include weight training in my routine so that I build the muscles necessary to burn all of those nasty calories I consume during my “Miss Piggy” week. So, you see, I understand food cravings and find myself giving into my temptations, but this doesn’t mean I need to be heavy just because I enjoy bad foods during certain periods of each month. Prior to regularly exercising, yes, I most definitely gained weight as a result of bad food decisions, but if you’re determined enough, you can eliminate your extra weight and still enjoy occasional treats. This will lead to a healthy, happy and self-confident attitude. But remember, do it for you and don’t be concerned what others are saying because the “Donalds” of the world simply don’t matter. Susan Megge is the founder of http://www.40isbeautiful.com, a website designed to assist women as they approach the years leading to menopause. Susan, a health and fitness expert started experiencing symptoms of menopause several years ago and researched various avenues to deal with these symptoms naturally. This led to her discovery that exercise and fitness play a crucial role in making getting older a very manageable and even wonderful time in a woman's life. Susan Megge is the author of "Being Beautiful Beyond 40," a book dedicated to helping women to be inspired, confident and beautiful as they approach menopause.

Self-Esteem Beings From Inside By Aurelia Williams

Developing a healthy self esteem take work but it is doable. It is important to know that you have the power to boost up your self esteem and rise above negativity. Our happiness is directly related to our self-esteem. Self-esteem affects our confidence and general outlook in life. It is however important to note that building our self-esteem is up to each and every one of us. It may seem easy to just blame others for any self esteem problems that we can encounter. Yes, the way others treat us has an effect on our self-esteem but we need to find a way to overcome challenges that come our way. We are talking about "self" esteem aren't we? An easy solution to avoiding those negative vibes around us is to remove ourselves from negative and unfavorable situations. We really do not need to expose ourselves to negativity. But doing that requires some self-esteem on our part, because we must feel that we are worthy of being treated well. But, how do we improve our self-esteem on our own? People with low self-esteem do not have any motivation to change their ways. To improve one's self esteem, the first step to take is to change their way of thinking. A good exercise to do is to make a list of reasons why you like yourself. It is not that difficult. Think hard and sure enough you will come up with a few reasons. One questions to ask your self when getting this list together is "What are some things that you are good at?" Try your very best not to think about anything negative about yourself as this results to a low self-esteem. The list of reasons why you like yourself will help you overcome any negativity you may be facing. Read your list often, especially when you start doubting yourself and your capabilities. Make this a habit and in time, you will just be naturally positive and have a higher self-esteem. Here are some other self-esteem boosters: Don't be afraid to learn and master new skills. Try a new hobby. Check out different classes offered in your local college. Learning new things can help you pay less attention to negative things you see in your self. Completing projects will give you a sense of accomplishment. This is a wonderful way to boost your self-esteem. Take care of yourself. Eat well, get some exercise and make sure you have enough sleep. All these things contribute to a great immune system and a better mood. Being in good physical condition allows you to think more clearly and be more relaxed and stress free. You will soon feel you’re self esteem go up. Face your responsibility. You are in charge of raising your own self-esteem. If your self-esteem is high and you feel good inside then it won't matter if others show you any negativity. That is what "self" esteem is all about.
