Women's Health (UK) - - BARE FACTS -

‘I 72%were more toned’ ‘I lost weight’ 46% ‘None of the above – I’m to­tally con­fi­dent!’ 7% ‘I wasn’t nat­u­rally self-con­scious’ 35% ‘My ro­man­tic part­ner com­pli­mented me more’ 9% The fact that we’re link­ing con­fi­dence to mus­cle tone rather than thin­ness is a win for the #strong­not­skinny crowd. ‘But if you tell your­self that chang­ing your body is go­ing to boost your con­fi­dence, your in­se­cu­ri­ties will just find a new tar­get and this could sab­o­tage your mo­ti­va­tion,’ says Burke. So, tone up be­cause you want to, but ap­pre­ci­ate that con­fi­dence is an in­ner job, too.
