Buy positive magazines - Women's Health & Fitness

4. Buy positive magazines

Note to self: One of the worst things you can do for your self-esteem and body image is to compare yourself with unrealistic images of celebrities shedding weight in unrealistic timeframes. Remember, they have personal trainers, dietitians, plastic surgeons, not to mention air-brushing on their photographs. It’s much better to choose magazines with real-life weight loss stories to inspire you, and with great ideas on how to shed your own weight safely. Rather than leave you depressed because of ridiculous expectations, a positive magazine will leave you feeling uplifted and motivated into action. But you already subscribe to that point of view. After all, you’re reading this magazine!
