The Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Blogs: Hiding vs. Showing Off
When you go out in public, do you either: 1- choose clothes that will capture people’s attention 2- chose an outfit that will hopefully not garner any attention 3- does not matter to you one way or the other?
My suspicion is that it is more likely that females would answer “1″ or “2″ than males. Certainly, at night time social events, most people “dress to impress” and it would seem to be the case that receiving positive attention as opposed to trying to deflect negative attention is a more fun scenario. Does the Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover lady wear clothes to hide her body? We would all doubt that. Does the actress who put on lots of weight try to hide herself when she goes out into the public arena so as not to have the paparazzi take pictures and post them in the National Enquirer for purposes of ridicule?
Your successful weight loss efforts will turn the tables and have you wear clothes that welcome attention and not deflect it. There will be no reasons to ‘hide” anymore in social situations. The confidence and self-esteem build up is immeasurable. Stay steadfast in your efforts.
