We have all been there.  We beat ourselves up.  “Jeez, my stomach looks big in this top…” “I can’t wear that, I’m too fat.”  “If I were just a little thinner, I bet I would get that girl/guy…”

We are being bullies…TO OURSELVES.  We won’t get anywhere if we do that.  Even if we make it to our goal weight, we will still feel small and defeated, and not good enough if we are constantly bullying ourselves into those thoughts.

So, how do we stop?  Every single time you have a negative thought about your body image, fill it with a positive one.  One that you ACTUALLY believe.  Take a moment, right now, and write down five things you like about yourself.  “I have nice eyes”  “My fashion is always on fleek.”  “I can rock a good stiletto”  “My ass is bigger and better than anyone in this office.”  “I have a nice collar-bone.”  Post those self-compliments anywhere and everywhere you can….and when that negative thought rolls around, repetitively go over your compliment.

Why should we bully ourselves?  Let’s instead be our biggest cheerleaders.

Have fun & Be Active!
