Comparison is the Thief of Weight Loss

So my favorite quote of all time, “Comparison is the Thief of Joy” comes from Theodore Roosevelt. I have it as one of my Pinterest board covers and I post it on our Count Me Healthy Facebook page at least once every six months.

Tip 7# Just focus on being a better you.

Tip 7# Just focus on being a better you.

It resonates with me because we as women are ALWAYS comparing ourselves to not only our peers, but women in magazines who have been Photoshopped to the hilt. This steals personal joy and also stalls motivation to continue with your fitness routine and healthy lifestyle. Negative thoughts like, “I could never get as thin or tiny as (insert model or actress name here), what’s the point?” So the tip to take away from this is that whenever you find your mind wandering toward comparison mode, center your thoughts and remember that the only person you should be competing with is yourself—to be better than you were the day before. – CC
