Now Playing Tracks

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

I agree to wear clothes that make me feel good.

I agree not to blame myself when something doesn’t fit. (I don’t need to fit the clothes; the clothes need to fit me.)

I agree to have more fun, whatever that means to me.

I agree to take the time to think about my boundaries.

I agree to try to preserve those boundaries.

I agree to treasure myself.

I agree to avoid body bashing and dig deeper if I realize that I can’t stop.

I agree to thank my body for all the amazing things it does for me.

I agree to remember that real women aren’t just curvy or thin or muscular. Real women come in all shapes and sizes.

I agree to pursue my passions or learn more about them.

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.
