It really does help. It's also helped with things like my anxiety and depression. Plus losing weight makes you feel so much more self confident.
I had really lost all self confidence in the way I looked, but now I'm starting to feel a lot better about it!
I know what you are saying when it comes to losing your self confidence. I never thought I would be one to have to worry about my weight because I was always just naturally kind of on the thin side, my whole family is really. Now I find myself avoiding mirrors, scales and people with cameras or camera phones...not to easy when one of my sisters is a photographer. I have really been avoiding friends and family to because I don't want to hear their comments about my recent weight gain. I just really hate the way I look right now. I am not a vane person at all but I really just want my weight and body slimmed down...like really down. I really do think it has made me be a little socially anxious. That is what I want...I want my self confidence back!!
I am happy to hear that you are gaining your self confidence back!! How long have you been working on losing your weight?? Personally I have gained somewhere close to the 90lb ballpark. I got up to 209lb and I am 5'7" tall. I weighed in between 115 and 125ish and I had a small to medium frame. In my early 20's I was doing a lot of methamphetamine (I started out using it to help me study for finals) and then I weighed 97lbs. Sad but true. Glad I am not doing that stuff anymore either!!
I do feel a little better... even a little lighter each day and that makes me feel good. I know that if I keep it up, eventually it will show on the outside too. I wish you all the best with your weight loss too. I know what it means. Stay strong. Have a great day!!
