When we are caught up in a moment of really not liking our bodies for whatever reason - maybe the scale is showing a number we don't like or our skin breaks out or we're feeling bloated or we're hung up on cellulite, whatever - it can be really helpful to just reach for a single, simple thought that makes us feel just a tiny bit better.
I've listed some examples below. Maybe one of these will help you exactly as it's written or maybe they will inspire a new thought that's truer to you. Just be honest with yourself and pay attention to how you're feeling. Focus on whatever thought that brings you some relief!
It's kinda like medicine. It may not cure you immediately, but it soothes you while you're in the process of healing.
There are way more interesting things about me than my weight.
Maybe I should treat myself to a manicure or a massage. My body deserves to be pampered a little.
I have really nice eyes / hair / (whatever body part you often get compliments on and/or really like about yourself).
It’s normal for body weight to fluctuate a little bit.
I love the way my body feels when I’m soaking in a bubble bath or taking a hot shower.
My weight is not that important in the grand scheme of things.
Flowers come in a variety of shapes and colors. They're all beautiful in different ways. Bodies are like that, too.
People lose weight all the time. It’s possible for me to lose weight if that’s something I want to do.
I like my smile / dimples / shoulders / boobs / feet / (whatever - list as many as you can).
If I can learn to truly love myself it won't really matter what anyone else thinks of me...
The way I feel in my clothes is more important than the numbers on the tag.
I love the way a strawberry (or chocolate or whatever) tastes on my tongue. I’m glad I’m able to enjoy different flavors.
The human body is capable of amazing things. I feel inspired thinking about athletes, dancers, and people who have overcome physical obstacles.
I like the feel of soft fabric / the warmth of a fire / cool water against my skin. My skin allows me to have so many lovely sensations.
A phone case is not as important as the phone. Likewise, it’s okay if I want my body to look a certain way, but what’s inside really is the valuable part.
Beauty does not have a size or a particular shape.
I can love myself even while I’m trying to change something.
It’s pretty cool that my body allows me so many different experiences - hearing music, seeing sunsets, tasting pizza, smelling fresh air, etc.
If there was something I really wanted to change about my body, I could probably do it. Especially these days with all the fitness and cosmetic options available...
I love so many people in my life without caring about their perceived “flaws.” It’s possible that people love me without even noticing the things I’m insecure about.
A little side note:
While these are my own words and my own interpretations, I am heavily influenced by Abraham Hicks and Seth/Jane Roberts, and I always highly recommend their materials. You can see a list of books by clicking here. If you want further information, feel free to reach out.
