Benefit #851 of Losing Weight: More Confidence
It doesn’t how matter how strong of a person you are when you’re grossly overweight, you can never be fully confident in yourself until you lose weight.
Bold statement, eh? Don’t get offended, it’s true.
You can be the most educated, richest, best prepared and best looking 250, 300+ pound person in the world, but until you have the ability to walk into any Denny’s in America and sit down at a table, it’s hard to be confident in yourself.
Living life obese was stressful as I daily had to ask myself questions like “Will I fit?” or “Can I find my size?” or “Am I going to break this?” when I sat down on a chair I’d yet to sit down on before. My size was an obstacle that I had to maneuver around.
It’s not that way anymore.
Today, a friend can call me up at any given moment and ask me to do any random thing and I know size won’t be an issue. If someone called me today and asked me to go to Denny’s, I could say yes without hesitation (granted, I’d probably pick another restaurant). At 344 pounds, I would have to hesitate and ponder if I’ve ever been there before, the structural integrity of the chairs, the width of the booths, and how hot they kept the restaurant (due to being very prone to sweating when I was obese).
Benefit number 851 of losing weight is more confidence. A lot more confidence.
