Helpful Affirmations

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Something I'm learning is that I need to keep affirmations firmly in place to build my self esteem and alter the things I've always believed about myself. The source of my binge eating could very well come from the negative picture I have of myself and my faulty beliefs about me.

My good friend SHERIO5 responded to my last blog with the encouragement that reminded me that I have many good reasons in my life to take good care of my body. I told her that "I never have been one to think about good reasons to take care of myself. I guess I never thought of myself as valuable. I always thought of myself as invisible. As I am writing this, my eyes are opening to these misconceptions and how maybe they have a lot to do with why I tend to self-sabotage my weight loss efforts."

Here's some affirmations that I want to hearing myself say in my head instead of all the negative beliefs I've had. They relate a lot to my focus on overcoming binges.

I'm now moving my life in a positive direction

I'm in complete control of my thoughts and actions now

I am happy

I honor myself in all that I do

I am healthy and full of energy

I only eat when I'm hungry

My body is a sacred temple

I love myself

Eating healthy comes naturally to me

I love myself exactly as I am

I like exercise; it gives me energy

I use good judgement in all areas of my life

I am always progressing

I am valuable

I am calm

I am a daughter of God and I'm worthwhile

I am of infinite worth

I am strong
