Women can be their worst critics and they allow self-criticism to influence how they feel about themselves, says fashion expert, Amy Blankenship Pedersen, co-founder of Slimpressions Shapewear (http://www.slimpressions.com). Using a patented seamless technology, this line of high-quality body shapers slim and sculpt a woman’s silhouette helping her appear smaller than she really is. The line was designed with comfort in mind. “Gone are the days of circulation-limiting girdles. We believe things like oxygen should not be compromised for the sake of looking good” Pedersen says.
“Sometimes, women can be our own worst enemies,” says Pedersen. “We tell ourselves we’re not worthy enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough, not thin enough, not beautiful enough. What we are really saying is that we’re not good enough yet. We would never talk to anyone like this, so why allow it for ourselves?” In a recent blog post, Waning Woman (http://www.waningwoman.com) referred to these types of negative thoughts as ‘ear worms’.
To help women address these self-confidence issues head-on, Slimpressions Shapewear, http://www.slimpressions.com, has launched the Positive Self-Talk Challenge. “Our company’s mission is to help women feel good about themselves. We take ‘support’ literally and figuratively.” Pedersen provides the following mantra for her audience: “For the next week, your glass is half-full, not half-empty. You are good enough. You are beautiful inside and out. You are smart, kind and important (as we learned in the movie "The Help"). The scale does not define you. You are one of a kind - special and unique. You are worthy.”
Changing one’s mindset is not easy. Connie Stapleton, Ph.D., author of Eat It Up!, says overcoming negative thoughts about yourself is key. “Most people are more successful when they have a series of little wins,” Stapleton says. “I applaud Slimpressions for this challenge. If women can condition themselves to reinforce a positive body image and overall self-love for one week, they are more likely to repeat the learned behavior for an extended period of time.”
