Now for me - I catch myself being critical of my image now and then ‘cuz I ain’t no skinny Minnie either! But that's not the point. I have learned from her that how you believe you look is more important than measuring yourself against others. Just think about all that crap that runs through your mind every day, like: how you look fat, have cellulite, want your tummy to be flatter. If you look back 10 years you may realize not much has changed in how you think about yourself regardless of your size. Therefore, it’s time for your mental weight loss plan!
Take Action: For the next 48 hours catch all negative thoughts that pop up in your brain and pull them out like weeds – just tug! Then replant a flower/positive thought in each place. For example, replace the thought, “I am fat” with “I love my body exactly as it is.” Replace “I will never be skinny” with “I love what I see.” It sounds cheesy but honestly you really do create your reality with your thoughts, so you may as well shift them to be positive ones, non? Just like you wouldn’t rely on someone to do your laundry for you, there is no need to rely on some person to tell you that you are beautiful. Don’t ask for beauty approval, own it.
