Why Lose Weight? To Look Great
Appearances aren't everything, but they are motivating!
"I want to look at myself in the mirror and like what I see," Dave Fioravanti (season 1) told us.
Every year, millions of us embark on diets to improve our appearance.
Generally, losing weight does make you feel more satisfied with your physical appearance. Even so, The Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper cautioned: "The main thing is to make peace with your body now, before you try to change it. Accept where you are at the moment. Okay, you're overweight. But how great that you've decided to do something about it!"
Even if you're overweight now, you can make yourself more attractive by wearing different clothes, using makeup, having a makeover, or changing your hairstyle. Don't wait until you reach your goal weight to buy new clothes. Buy them over the course of losing weight. This is good for your morale and motivation and will invite compliments from other people.
The point is to start feeling attractive now, and not to make attractiveness contingent upon having a slimmer body at some point in the future.
