Conceit is inordinately thinking too highly of yourself. This inhibits change and keeps you from achieving your true potential. Today’s American society tends to pride themselves in being bigger and better than their neighbor. Sometimes we welcome competition more than we welcome
cooperation. We forget that everyone in society depends on one another.
Avoid focusing on being bigger and better. Instead, focus on a smaller & more efficient body. Think of ways you can contribute to society. Remember, this is a lifestyle change, and you want to keep the weight off. That includes character building. You must be grateful for what you have and be willing to share with others. For example, there are a lot of people in the United States and around the world that lack the resources, money, and education to stay healthy and eat healthy foods. We have an opportunity and responsibility to help those people.
There’s an old saying, “You only keep what you give away.” Of course, don’t give everything away to charity. But, planning to give something to your community or to a charity organization will help you achieve gratitude for the things you have, like food. You can give time, money, or gifts. Learning to give more will help your mind focus & grow, opening doors to your goals.
You will look different and will be smaller. You have to overcome the societal urge to think big and be big. You need to acknowledge and feel comfortable in your new skin, as a thinner & younger looking person. This is not easy, especially if you have been overweight for several years.
You have become accustomed to being big, and may have told yourself that being big comes with age and wisdom, both of which are lies that you need to forget. Habits take at least 6 months to form, therefore it will take awhile for you to get used to your new routine and lifestyle. Be patient with yourself and if you mess up, don’t give up. “It’s not the number of times you fall down, but the number of times you get back up.”
