What if I don’t like myself even after I lose weight?
You're wise to understand that self-image and self-esteem are not always connected. Sure you may think that you'll love yourself more, or be happier once the extra weight is gone, but it's unlikely. Don't fall for the myth that losing weight brings happiness. Find happiness right now, and the weight will come off naturally.
First, work on getting happier and liking yourself more, no matter what. Don't let your self-esteem and confidence have anything to do with external conditions. Find things to like and encourage in yourself – the way you would for a good friend. Look to God inside of you, however you understand the Divine, to help you see that you belong to this world. You're important and good, just the way you are. Your place in this universe doesn’t depend on how you look!
I'm convinced that overall human health is a product of our relationship with the Divine, and our own ability to let ourselves exist as God intended us to be. Once you stop worrying about everything, and surrender to the will of the Divine, then it all slowly falls into place. Happiness begins to arrive in amazing ways. The weight slowly becomes a far less important problem. Your overall health improves. Your relationships with others improve. You see that you’re not alone, and that you are supposed to be here – just the way you are – the way that you were created to be.
