I’m not quite sure why it is so difficult to ‘love thyself,’ the number one commandment of Our Lady of Weight Loss’ 10 Commandments of Permanent Fat Removal (a.k.a. weight loss) but apparently – it is!
If you were to ask me, “Janice … What’s the best part of losing weight?” (Go ahead, ask …) I would tell you with certainty that the big prize of permanent weight removal is that at the end of the day there is no beating up of self. I love myself. (In a grounded, non-narcissistic way.)
As a flower needs watering, so does ‘self-love.’
~ Janice Taylor, the voice of Our Lady of Weight Loss
How can you begin to water your ‘self-love’ today???
START WITH A SELF TALK RITUAL:
Look in the Mirror: Smile at yourself (yes, again.)
Pay Yourself a Compliment: Say something nice. Even if it’s as simple as “thank you for looking in the mirror. I appreciate the effort. You are a good soul.”
I Can: Write (in your mind’s eye or on paper) and say “I CAN” 100 times!
“I CAN is 100 times more important than IQ.” — unknown
Post-It Positive Affirmation Daily. Write out a positive affirmation every day. Then post your post it on your mirror or screen or wherever, a positive affirmation and say to yourself, “I love and accept myself completely and unconditionally.”
Fake It Til You Make It. If you have to, fake it till you make it. Pretend to love yourself.
