Feeling Self Conscious And Developing Happiness

self conscious
Have you ever walked into a room of people only to feel self conscious like you were the biggest one there?
 
Do you avoid photos with your friends on nights out because they are skinnier than you?
 
Have you ever gotten all dressed up for a night out, felt great, but as soon as you look at people around you, all your insecurities come to the fore.
 
Why can’t you have a smaller waist?
 
It’s so hard to ever lose weight off your hips and thighs?
 
Why can’t you just wear nice clothes instead of hiding under black tops or big dresses?

Overcoming The Self Conscious Mind

For many of your girls, you stand in front of the mirror and you feel unhappy with your stomach, your hips, your thighs…
 
Pretty much from your ribs to your knees.
 
You see all the pretty dresses online but you can never buy them because of your current shape.
 
Holidays and bikinis are only a pipe dream.
 
You would love to be able to stand in front of a mirror and be happy with what you see.
 
To feel confident in your own skin.
 
To wear clothes you feel great in rather than buy clothes to cover and hide yourself.
 
Being perfectly honest, life is too short to be constantly fighting insecurities, negative body images and to be spending your time low on confidence.
 
Just take a moment and think off all the times you’ve felt self conscious in public.
 
May you’ve skipped events of just didn’t enjoy them because of it?
 
Now picture yourself in 12 months time where you can be full of confidence, feel great in your own body and you can live life with a smile on your face.
 
While I may regularly joke about this place being overran by girls, it’s actually great to see so many doing their thing here.
 
I’ve seen girls going from being very self conscious and low in confidence to beaming with smiles and enjoying life.
 
It’s one of the perks of the job and it’s always so satisfying to help people live a happier life.
 
Whether that comes from helping someone drop a dress size of two, overcome their fear of food or simply allowing them to grow in confidence of their own body by lifting weights.

Seeing Progress

Only yesterday, I had a check in with a girl who is 1 week into your 28 Day Shape Up Plan and she dropped 5lbs.
 
To see that little bit of happiness because of that success is worth it all.
 
And she’s keeping the head down and putting the work in to ensure it keeps on going that way.
 
Because in 6 months time, she could be a completely transformed person, not just in regards to the number on the scales.
 
While on social media you will see girls in crop tops or in their best underwear showing off their new protein shaker, I rather to take the complete opposite approach.
 
I want people to feel better about themselves without the need for validation online.
 
I want to help people lose weight and tone up so they can be more confident in clothes and in social circles.
 
StrongLife helps people have a bit of fun along the way too.
 
Because no matter what, we all want to enjoy life.
 
We shouldn’t let how we look dictate how much we allow ourselves to live.
 
And if dropping a few pounds, lifting a few weights and working on your own mind helps achieve all that, then StrongLife Gym is a place for you.
 
It’s as much working on the inside as much as it is the outside.
 
That way you will live a much happier life.
 
And sure that’s really the main thing, isn’t it?
 
Just put one foot in front of the other, every single day.
 
Hope you’re having a good day!
 
Colm.
