Do You Have Problems With Negative Body Image?
Body image is more of an issue today than it ever has been. Look at any number of magazines in your local newsagents or at news stands and you will see examples of the “perfect” look as well as magazines that tell you how to get it, next to other magazines which relate the stories of people who felt like dying because they couldn’t achieve the look they wanted.
It is tremendously easy to develop a negative self-image with regard to your body these days. Look at the headlines when a celebrity puts on a few extra pounds and you will see how opinions are shaped. Someone who is carrying extra weight can become the victim of a campaign of criticism that borders on the slanderous.
If you are coming from a position of negative body image, you are not in the right place to go for the perfect look. It sounds like a logical impossibility, but the truth is that people who are disgusted with themselves are not in a good position to turn things around in a lasting and correct way. They are far more likely to take short-cuts which will not help them in the long term.
This does not mean that you have to go on a long journey of discovery to get the look you want, only that you have to give a lot of thought to how you will go about getting there. If you are prepared to do a lot of hard work and ready to deal with setbacks, then the process of getting the best abs will be a lot more manageable.
