Being A Hottie Is An Option

If you are familiar with any of my previous posts you know that I don't believe that you have to thin or skinny to be attractive or sexy. In order to be a true hottie, you have to be self confident and have a positive self image.

Some lucky folks are born with total self confidence. Others need to make some internal changes in order to boost their self confidence and still, others require some external changes in order to boost their self confidence like losing some weight, a new hair style or some great fitting clothes.

Whichever category you fall into, I suggest that now is the time to begin taking steps to boost your self confidence thereby unleashing your inner and outer Hottie.

The most attractive people are not necessarily the prettiest people. They are the ones who are secure enough and confident enough to make other people feel good when they are around them.
Their positivity is infectious and people, darn near fight over their friendship. We all know people like that. They are the ones who always have a kind word to uplift your spirits when they are around because they feel good about themselves and sincerely, feel good about you too.

They often look great too. They think enough of themselves to take care of their appearance and make sure that they are comfortable with their weight or they take steps to improve it. They usually have a wonderful spouse or mate who wouldn't want to live without them because they appreciate the gem, that they have found, in that person.

Time goes by too quickly to spend it feeling unhappy with your situation. If their are things in your life that you have the power to change than you should change them.

It also feels good to help others. The bible says, "blessed is he who is kind to the needy" Prov. 14:21. Taking the focus off of yourself and assisting someone in need is extremely fulfilling and you can't get any hotter than that.

Eating Healthier Requires Being Emotionally Strong

When I changed my diet, in order to lose weight and be healthier ,many of my friends and relatives treated me like I was, plain old, crazy. They thought It was strange that I consistently read labels before eating stuff and they were sure that my giving up red meat and shellfish, was just a fad. Some of them even tried to tempt and test me with delicious smelling homemade dishes.

Instead of getting angry and protesting too much, and letting them know that I thought they were the crazy ones for putting "foods" in their bodies that were hazardous to their health, I kept my cool and calmly passed every test and turned away from every temptation.

I don't judge others by what or how much they eat yet I had to develop a thick skin because I am often judged by what I don't eat. Never the less, many of my family members and friends have started to follow my lead and proudly report to me all the small changes that they make to improve their own diets. I never say "I told you so" or "remember when..." I simply support them to the best of my ability.
