A female’s happiness starts here. The mirror confirms her self-love, aka appreciation of who she is. The mirror also provides nourishment to her sense of self-importance, aka appreciation for what she does. With those satisfactions, she becomes grateful for herself, and gratitude is the essence of happiness.
A female’s unhappiness starts here. Poor choices at the mirror contradict her self-love and under-nourish her self-importance. Those two dissatisfactions nullify self-gratefulness, which leads to finding other ways to feel good about herself. Overeating compensates and overweight follows.
When the mirror doesn’t make her feel good enough about her appearance, she abandons her natural tendency for caution and eats like men. Overeating drowns her intuitive nature about showing off her prettiness.
Mirrors spout guilt and generously spray women with desire to improve what they see. Thus, the secret to weight control and proper weight resides in mirrors made friendly by a female’s heart and nature. When the mirror is her enemy, she makes poor choices and betrays self-interest. She chooses to do too little, takes shortcuts, or otherwise fails to develop a satisfied appearance for the moment, day, or life. Poor choice today leads to more tomorrow, and future views at the mirror bring disappointment, frustration, and embarrassment.
Each female has both an easy weapon and strong ability to achieve her desired weight and shape, namely the mirror and new attitude. Change her actions and self-talk at the mirror and she changes her attitude.
Attitude is the outward expression of her heart. To change it requires actions that reprogram how she feels about herself. If she drops poor choices at the mirror and adopts good choices, her attitude changes, her appearance improves, and need to overeat diminishes. So, let’s define poor and good.
Poor choices follow this attitude. ‘I’m unable to fix or make future benefits out of one or all of my discouraging features. Therefore, I will copy others whom I envy for their appearance and ability to attract guys’. Her determination fertilizes decisions to become poor habits.
Good choices follow this attitude. ‘I’m dedicated to always make my features look their best and with improvements in mind for making each feature better, even if it takes years. To copy others whom I envy betrays my uniqueness and weakens my ability to compete with them for the man of my dreams. I’m my own person’. Her determination fertilizes decisions to become good habits.
Poor choices damage her ability to be grateful for herself. Gratitude brings happiness, and gratitude for how she looks is the first step. So every poor choice at the mirror takes a chunk out of future happiness.
The toll road to both slenderizing and happiness starts first thing in the morning as summarized in article 1440 and others mentioned there. At the mirror each day, this toll is paid: She identifies another good idea to study, tries and appraises improvements, and determines to turn into habit whatever prettiness presents her at her greatest before others and especially family. When at her prettiest, she believes in herself, manages her family better, and wields influence far beyond what poor choices produced earlier in life.
All women are pretty in their hearts. If they don’t expose it by prettifying their outward appearance,* they lose influence with females and personal effectiveness with men. Choices made at the mirror determine a female’s life, lifestyle, and happiness.
*Contrary to modern custom, neatness and bright colors magnify female prettiness. Males are colorful in the animal world to out-compete other males for sex and enable females to hide for protection. Females use neat and colorful attire in the human world to out-compete other females for a protective mate. Doing so lures males away from their protective places, methods, and manners.
