A spark friend told me something the other day, She said talk to yourself like you would a friend. In my life my friends are more like family and i hold them very dear. I can truly say that I love them. I would never in a million years talk to them and put them down like I do myself. I have my theories on why this is but I dont want to put it out there yet.

I do not know how to change it, I fear that If I dont that when I lose the weight that i will put right back on, cause i have not really changed the problem.
The truth is I don't love myself, I dont even like myself really. I put myself down all of the time with super negative self talk. I don't know how to change this or where to start.

Any advice on where to begin?

    Remind yourself of all the positive attributes about you. You're a hard worker, a wonderful mother, a kind loving person. You are a special person because you are created in God's image. And He doesn't make junk. Hope This helps

    I think your awareness is key. Once you know, you can act. I had to monitor my thought process to catch myself being negative. Once I practiced, I was able to question those thoughts as they entered my mind and counter them with new truths about who I am and who I will be! Sounds hokey, but it does help.

It's important to remind yourself of all of the positives that are YOU. We are all a mixture of strength/weakness, positive/negative. Which will you feed?

Don't hesitate to seek assistance if need be! emoticon emoticon emoticon
