#LikeAMother Tricks to get your confidence on when you feel old and fat

how be confident

Insider secret: Even the most poised, gorgeous, successful people are shitting their pants, all day long.

So if you feel a little fat, a bit unsure of yourself, a tad — or a lot!  — inadequate … join the effing club mama!

In this episode I elaborate on these tricks I’ve cultivated over the years …

  •  Give yourself a compliment on your appearance. Every. Single. Day.
  • Give yourself a compliment on YOURSELF every single day.
  • Read my Feel too fat to find great sex? Shut up and read these 3 things …
  • Dress up and look your best every single day.
  • Fake it till you make it.
  • Note someone in your life who walks about as if they are confident and sexy all the time.
  • Before you walk into a bar or club, I tell yourself: ‘You are the hottest woman in there.’ If you believe it, men then do, too.
  • Have sex with yourself all the time.
  • Think to times you adored another person’s body, in all its human splendor, because you adored him. You and your human body are just as lovable, too.

  1. Loved, loved, loved the podcast today! Thank you for your honesty and positivity, Emma. True words of wisdom. Sometimes we think we are the only one out there feeling this way. Self esteem flows from the inside out, even when all of those media images tell me I have to be 25 years old and 120 lbs. F*** ’em!

    (Btw, I was also a 20 year old virgin! So great to know I was in such excellent company. =)
