I agree to remove anything from my home that doesn’t make me feel good, including certain magazines and diet books.

I agree to take the focus away from weight when I work out and focus on how I feel.

I agree to turn to healthy coping strategies when I’m feeling anxious, overwhelmed or upset.

I agree to reach out for help when I need it.

I agree to work toward accepting and loving myself, if I don’t just yet.
