Do you remember the last time you felt confident? If your answer is yes, I’d love for you to share that moment! If your answer is no, I understand completely. I’ve been there too.
I was once that person hiding beneath over-sized sweaters and jackets, standing in the corner of the room, trying to make sure no one noticed me. I can also remember those days when everyone around me kept telling me I looked great, but all I saw in the mirror were the same flaws I’d always criticized myself for.

We need to stop picking ourselves apart and start putting ourselves together.
Amy Cuddy said it better than we ever could at one of her well renowned TED Talks, “Don’t fake confidence ‘til you make it, fake it ‘til you become it.”
Her tip? Change your body posture! Stand up straight. When you’re feeling insecure, stand like Wonder Woman or Super Man.
After two minutes, you’ll start to feel more confident.
Regular exercise improves your energy levels and produces various chemicals in your brain like endorphins (associated with improved mood, increased pleasure, and minimized pain).
You may dread exercise, but you WON’T dread the euphoric feeling of confidence you receive after you do it.
My tip? Don’t want to go to the gym? Do some yoga at home or go for a 30-minute walk.
After you lose weight, whether you followed a healthy meal plan, hit the gym, or like me – you’ve had bariatric surgery and changed your lifestyle, it’s difficult to see yourself as who you are NOW as opposed to who you were before.
The only way to really appreciate how far you’ve come is to let go of the mental image of your previous self. Realize that you are not the same person you were a year ago, three months ago, last week, or even an hour ago.
YOU are constantly changing and evolving. Accept that and you’re one step closer to being confident!
A lot of the time we’re comparing ourselves to other people. At the gym have you ever compared yourself to the person on the treadmill next to you or the twenty-something who is at a completely different place in life than you?
Comparing ourselves simply causes unnecessary anxiety and pain. It doesn’t accomplish anything.
Focus on YOURSELF. Remind yourself of your victories and how far YOU’VE come.
Who cares if that person on the treadmill next to you is running a two-minute mile, when you walked up four flights of stairs the other day without being winded? Who cares if that body-builder is lifting a hundred pounds more than you, when you can bowl with a 12-pound ball and your arms don’t hurt afterwards?
Your accomplishment are just as amazing and praise-worthy as theirs. Trust me.
“I always wanted people to see the best sides that I thought I had, so I never left the house without makeup and my hair done,” says sleever and Nutracelle customer, Connie Poss(seen below). “But now I can go out without all the makeup and still feel good!”
Success story Connie Poss.
Failure is something that can take a blow to our self-esteem. As a mom, an author, an entrepreneur and especially as someone who has struggled with my weight for most of my life, I know it firsthand.
But it doesn’t have to.
You have to realize that it’s not the end of the world if you fail at something.
Take a look at really successful and confident people! How do they handle failure? They’ve all experienced it. Some of the most successful people have come back from the biggest failures.
They look at each failure and see the positive in it. They view it as an opportunity to learn how to improve for next time.
Did you know that to be successful at something one must fail maybe 5, 10, or 20 times? Each failure is a step forward towards success.
Try to take failure and improve yourself. Listen to the advice from others and try again. If that doesn’t work out, get back up, dust yourself off, and try again! And most importantly – praise yourself for getting out there and trying!
We have faith in you.
Positivity has become a throw-away slogan in our cynical world. But it shouldn’t be! Choosing to be positive is something that you can think, do, and be surrounded by. As you start to think positively, you’ll soon find yourself taking life’s disappointments in stride.
You’ll start to see the glass half-full, rather than half-empty.
My tip? If something disappoints you, try to remember a positive memory! Let’s say your weight plateaued, try to remember how you felt when you finally fit into that dress you’ve been waiting years to wear! Or let’s say you slipped up over the holidays and overate, try to remember how you felt when you stayed on track before. You got this!
Your positive memories aren’t for nothing. Use them to bring you confidence!
Inspiring and motivating music can pump you up and make you feel good.
Do you have a favorite go to song that always puts you in a good mood? PUT IT ON. Blast it. Scream the lyrics at the top of your lungs. Jump around the room. Do a little dance.
You will feel SO much better once the song ends.
And because we love YOU and want you to become confident we’ve thrown together a little Nutrafamily inspired play list:
We all know that channeling your inner confidence will be difficult at first but start small with one or two tips on my list. And know that I feel insecure and self-critical too – you aren’t alone! But the real success is recognizing it and refusing to let it define you.
And as you keep working at it, you won’t have to fake your confidence anymore.
You will BE confident.
Do you have any feel-good songs you’d like us to add to our playlist?

Love this flavor! Definitely appeals to my sweet tooth!
When I opened the bag I couldn't believe how GOOD it smells! It really smells just like fresh picked strawberries. And there are REAL Strawberry flecks in it!!! I watched Melanie's webinar and she said there were dried real strawberries in it, but I didn't realize she meant actual strawberries in it!! omg! I was kind of worried that it would taste like that nestle strawberry milk syrup but it doesn't - it just tastes like you are eating real strawberries. I love that it's not too sweet too. Anyway, if you are thinking about trying it and you like strawberries, you will love this one! I'm changing my monthly order now to make sure I get a bag every month along with the natural I use in everything I eat. I've lost about 7 pounds in the last two months and I just fit back into my favourite jeans again so I'm pumped to get to keep the weight off with strawberry now too! Thank you Nutracelle (and Melanie and Tracy!)
I absolutely love my new cookbook! Such a great selection of recipes and so far every single one I've made is fantastic! Thank you Melanie
The old nutralean was so good and the new blend is even better. Did not thing protein nutralean could get better man it’s better!! And my 2 & 1 year old know what I’m drinking and take my drink all the time for themselves. Love It!!!!
Absolutely loving the new formulas. They mix beautifully with water now... and they taste amazing!
I have trouble finding protein powder I don’t hate. I bought the cafe mocha and chocolate dream to try and didn’t expect to love it but I do!!! It was amazing! No weird after taste or texture. It also came with a shaker cup! I love that the ingredients are all things that I know. Plus it’s made in Canada!
Love these protein powders. Love the recipes...easy and quick!!!
So happy with my product. It’s a great product for anyone who’s on the go and always busy. I can rest easy knowing I’m getting good nutrients, that also taste yummy!
WOW!!! I’m sipping a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie as I’m typing this review. I received my order of the new formulas today and was excited to try it! I’m so impressed with the smooth, creamy consistency and the ease that it blends! 2 thumbs up from me!!!
This will hands down always be my go-to choice for anything protein related. I am glad it does not even taste like i am having a protein supplement. Since I don't enjoy eating meat often, this is the best alternative!
I love the taste! Even when you mix it with just water it has a creamy taste. You can do so much with the variety of flavours, you can not possibly get bored with Nutracelle!
Absolutely the best shake i have ever tried. Such great flavors... I love it! ☺
Product works when you follow guidelines. Always weighed at Doctor's office
believe it or not i've lost 51 lbs in 9 weeks. 30lbs to go...
My whole family loves Nutralean! Great taste and quick shipping.
Nutracelle products are great! Mixes amazingly! No grittiness like those other whey powders. Naturla Nutralean prebiotic protein for baking works awesome to make not just baking, but also make shakes and protein balls. The plain flavour allows incorporation into food without tasting that there is protein powder in it! I would recommend this product to those looking for a good quality protein powder!!
I can literally put it everywhere, whatever food i make i can add some natural protein in it, soup, bake goods, protein balls, pizza dough, etc.
Its amazing and so tasty
I have been in a stall between 208 and 202 for 5 months....in one week of being back on Nutracelle I am now in ONEDERLAND!
The taste and quality of nutracelle is absolutely unparalleled in the protein market. I recommend it to all my friends and family and having been using it daily for almost 2 years now. And still in love!
The Vanilla Cream is a great flavour added to any of my favourite smoothie recipes! Also makes a nice tasting pancake recipe.
Natural Nutralean from Nutracelle is the perfect protein to add to your food!! There is no added taste!! I made a zucchini meat pasta and added 2 scoops of Natural into my meat sauce!! Not only did it give me and my family all the protein we needed for dinner, but it cut back our portion sizes because we felt fuller faster! We have leftovers now for lunches!! I am so happy with my Nutracelle!
The Vanilla Mocha from Nutracelle is to die for!!! If you are like me and need my coffee every morning to function...then this is for you, as it will give you all the energy you need!! It even taste just like something I can get from Tim Horton's but this is good for you to drink every morning!! This is a must for coffee lovers!!!
The Chocolate Dream Protein from Nutracelle is soooo good. Chocolate is my all time favourite snack and with Nutracelle I am able to make these delicious desserts that are actually good for you! This is a must flavour to have!!
Meal plan is realistic and absolutely manageable. My coach checks in post every workout to see if there is any area I struggle in or if maybe the routine was too easy. He is quick at answering any questions I have and is very knowleageable with nutrition and what my body needs to eat and can explain it to me in various ways to make sure I understand as well. I have never worked with someone who is so passionate about fitness and proper nutrition as well as someone who is on top of everything. App is also very user-friendly; super easy to log everything in with a few click so that you dont have to do it urself on paper. Absolutely thrilled to be working with this team to better my fitness life. Highly recommend joining the team!
Nutracelle's Weight Loss kit has made such a huge impact on my life! I was a junk food junky before I found Nutracelle, and now I don't even think about it! It's been months since I've had any kind of junk and I've never felt better! More energy, tons of weight loss, and I've dropped 2 clothing sizes too!! AMAZING!
The weightloss kit has enabled me to wake up each morning knowing that I've got this!! For the first time in my life I've found something that allows me to feel full and satisfied and I can bake and cook with it to curb cravings I have for junky foods! In my first two months I'm down 15 pounds and dropping. Almost everyday there is a decrease on the scale I couldn't be happier!! I'm looking forward to continued success THANK YOU NUTRACELLE!
Nutracelle is the best product I have ever used for protein. All the flavours are fantastic, can't taste the protein. Since I started to take Nutracelle I have consistent energy throughout the day, it keeps me full and satisfied. My recovery from my workouts and running is fantastic. Recommend this product to anyone wanting to lose weight, athletes or to increase your protein intake daily.
Shakes are amazing. I just mix them with (sugar-free) milk and have no problem drinking them. Like at all! I even love the chocolate. I never ever love chocolate protein shakes haha
This Whey protein powder is the most amazing and the most delicious that I have ever tasted.....with it having 30 grams of protein and 10 grams of prebiotic fiber in one serving, not many meals have that so a great way to get that into your diet.....It mixes very well with no clumping and doesn't have the chalky after taste. I find that is is very easy on my stomach as I am lactose intolerant and I have no issues what so ever, it has actually helped with my stomach issues....Love that it mixes very well with just water! I also Love that it is so versatile that I am not just limited to the shakes, that I can use it in my baking and cooking . If I could give it 10 Stars I would.
I have been on nutracelle since January 2017 and absolutely love it!
I'm losing weight and inches, I have so much more energy and it makes me happy! Nutracelle is giving me my life back! #ilovenutracelle
Nutracelle has been the one product that has kept me on track with my weight loss journey. So easy to incorporate into my daily routine and it tastes amazing! Almost all of my immediate family all use and love Nutracelle too!
It tastes amazing & reduces cravings! I'm breastfeeding and was finding my cravings worse than when I was pregnant. I needed something to eat with my meals to help me stay full, be nutritious and curb cravings. This is it!
