Christina Aguilera Says She Loves Her Body: How Loving Your Body Can Help You to Lose Weight

I haven't eaten all day.

I am having my first food for the day when my father saw me eating. He said, 'you ought to control your eating or you'll getting fatter.'

It's not make me stop eating. I eat even more. I even double up my portion.

I don't know why I behave so. Maybe that has to do something with my ego? Experts say that people with low self-esteem tend to eat more. I don't know if I am the only overweight people in the universe who experience this, but when people call me fat, I will eat more. Maybe this is what the physiologist refer as defense mechanism. Overweight people do not have the willpower needed to exercise and lose the extra weight. When they are criticize for being fat, their self-esteem level dropped and they'll eat more to fight depression, to make them feel good.

Speaking of self-esteem, I remember about one of Christina Aguilera's statement about her body. The "Genie in a Bottle" songstress was once known for showing off her stick thin body in skimpy clothes. Her radical change from a super-slim to a super-voluptuous figure, particularly after giving birth to her son has sparks debate. But despite the heavy critics over her weight, Christina hit back saying she loves her body.

I have a boyfriend that loves my body. I love my body, my son is healthy and happy and that is all that matters.

Women, we are definitely under a microscope and under massive scrutiny. As long as I am happy in my own skin, that is all that is all the confirmation I need.

This is a positive energy every overweight or obese people need. This is the secret to lose weight. Love your body regardless of your weight and appearance. But you ask, how does accepting your body can help you to lose weight? Or maybe you can ask how to love your body regardless of your weight and appearance? Let's discuss about it.

1. Befriending your body 
'Friending' your arms, legs, back, or butt clear your head of depressing thoughts. You can stop emotional eating episodes when you're feeling better about your physical self, and lose up to three times more weight.

2. Appreciate yourself

Looking at your naked body in front of a mirror and appreciate the parts you like. It could be your strength, your curves, your broad shoulders, your curly hair, your shapely calves, or your perfect height -- whatever’s appealing.

You have to realize that the way you look says very little about your value as a person.

When you appreciate yourself, you will not resort to dangerous diets, surgical procedures, slimming pills, and exercises that will make you sick, weak and more emotionally down in the end.

3. Protect your body
Replace any "I'm going to be model-thin" thoughts with healthy, realistic goals. If you have a child, you will do anything to protect her/him from harm because you love your child. In the same sense, if you love your body, you will protect your body by staying away from unrealistic thoughts or extreme strategies, and care more about your health than the numbers on your scale.

4. Take care of your body 
By doing everything in moderation, you will have enough energy and focus to balance other aspects of your mentally, emotionally and spiritually. When you take responsible on your body, you will watch closely what you put in your mouth. You will eat only healthy foods.

5. Appreciate your uniqueness 
Instead of comparing yourself with others who have lost weight after the latest fad diets, reflect your uniqueness on your life experiences, strengths, values, character, and even your weaknesses.

6. Respect yourself

Instead of focusing on the imperfections you see in the mirror, appreciate your assets.

Whenever negative thoughts pop into your mind, quiet them with relaxation technique.

Deep breathing, meditation, rhythmic exercise, and yoga can help the body relaxed, calm, and focused.

Give yourself a present. It could be an amazing spa day or a cup of nice and tasty frozen yogurt.

That's true love!

To end this post, this is Christina's Beautiful song. It talks about accepting yourself.
I am beautiful
No matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful
In every single way
Yes words can't bring me down
Oh no
So don't you bring me down today



I don't speak Spanish, so I don't understand a word. But I love this following music video. Christina look so gorgeous in this. And this is lovely soothing song too.

Enjoy! Have a great day everyone.

  2. Try Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

    My karate instructor once told me that I was getting fat! I hadn't noticed. Instead of punishing myself, I started eating better. Why hurt ourselves because others want to hurt us?

  3. it's definitely not motivating to hear NEGATIVE feedback about any goal, especially weight loss goals. "are you sure you want to eat that?" "i thought you were trying to cut out carbs?" "i guess your diet is on hold this week!"

    those little comments only push us closer to GIVING UP OUR GOALS, instead of sticking to them.

    that's why i try to find something encouraging to say to every person i know who is trying to get healthy. even if it's something as simple as "that's a great outfit!" or "i'm proud of you."

    adopting healthy lifestyles is hard enough, without the negative energy from our family/friends.

    anyway, good blog. im your newest follower

  9. Very interesting site... I think that people often use eating as a coping mechanism so you're definitely not along. I often eat more when I'm stressed, others do so when they're sad or lonely or angry. Just found your blog and have enjoyed getting to know you better. I'm excited to follow along!

  10. Visiting from SITS...What a nice post! I struggled with weight only once in my adult life--when I was experiencing the breakdown of my marriage. To lose the weight, I told myself I wanted to be healthy; that I wanted to live a good long life, be a good role model for my kids, and I wanted to walk into clothing stores and be able to look and feel good trying stuff on. That shift helped me a lot. Instead of focusing on weight, I put the focus on detoxing my body, getting into tip-top shape, and becoming the best me physically. Now it's a habit to exercise and to eat right, but boy oh boy was it a struggle at first! Self-esteem is a huge part of being overweight. So are past issues--from childhood or adult life--that haven't been cleared up. So is the way you deal with stress. Eating mindlessly has become a drug of choice for many people seeking relief from painful thoughts. I'd say there is nothing wrong with this way of numbing, but there is--eventually, your health suffers. I've had many clients who have been overweight and it always masks something deeper. I just wanted to add too, that your father's comment, as well-meaning as he intended to be, comes across as hurtful and critical.

  11. @Nicole Nenninger, I'm glad you stop by and share your story. Losing weight is a struggle but I believe once you adapt to the healthy lifestyle it'll became easier. Self-esteem is a huge issue for me. I still try to deal with it.

  12. In so many things in life it all comes down to respecting yourself. Regardless of weight if you don't respect yourself then how can others? I love this post! Hope you have a wonderful SITS Day! Can't wait to read more about your journey!

  13. Happy SITS day. I enjoyed this post with the comparison of Christina. She has been in the spotlight in two different lights. Beauty starts with how you feel about yourself. Have a great day.

  16. These are good tips, though I must say it's much more flattering to wear clothes that play up assets. Enjoy your SITS Day!
