The Importance of Trusting Yourself

Posted on August 20, 2018

Studies have shown that the more we take ownership of our condition, the more engaged we are in maintaining behaviors that help us live better.

An important factor in having the confidence to take this ownership is self-trust.

"If something doesn't seem right, I trust my gut and look for answers." - Member of MyObesityTeam

"When I was first diagnosed, I kept my mouth shut even if my doctor said something incorrect or wrong for my body. I'm learning to trust those feelings - my intuition - and speak up." - Member of MyObesityTeam

Here are recent conversations from MyObesityTeam members:

Was there a moment when you doubted yourself and later realized that your instinct was right? Or an instance when you were glad you trusted yourself? Share that moment in the comments below or directly on MyObesityTeam.com.

A MyObesityTeam Member said:

Very true, we only have ourselves to do right or wrong with our bodies.
