Take 5 minutes, every day, to look at yourself in the mirror. Don't pick at your flaws or put yourself down, just look at your features and find those things about your body that you love. Tell yourself that you are getting stronger every day and that you are choosing to live a healthier lifestyle and that you and your body should be appreciated and complimented for all the efforts you are putting forth. Love yourself for who you are, right now, without exception. You deserve it!
Create a mantra for yourself. Say it every chance you get. When you're pushing through your workout. When you're walking to the car. When you're looking at yourself in the mirror. When you need a boost.
