Why do so many people say such negative and mean things to themselves? You know that saying “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. The same thing goes for the way you treat yourself.
Don’t sabotage your efforts by bullying or criticizing yourself. Some things I have heard people say are: I’m not worth it, I’m fat, I can’t commit myself to exercise, I ate a piece of cake today and have blown my diet, so I might as well continue to eat crappy for the rest of the day. We can be our own worst enemy. Focus on the positive and be kind to yourself. Say things like: I look really good in this green top I’m wearing today, I ate an apple everyday for a week; I walked for 30 minutes four times this week. Be proud of yourself.
Treat your body and mind with respect by preparing healthy meals, moving your body everyday, and having a positive outlook. When you wake up first thing in the morning, take a moment, look in the mirror and say something NICE. Let yourself know that you are worth the effort. This is a great way to start your day.
