Every morning before my feet hit the floor, I make it a point to tell myself that I can do anything. I have the ability to say no to anything. That noone makes my choices for me. I put my feet on the floor and start my day. I make it a point not to think of dinner until I have had my breakfast. That way I do not overplan the meal.
I do a morning weight check on the scale which is placed in front of a full length mirror. This way I see the progress two fold. Sometimes it is hard to look at myself but I do notice little changes to my body.

I asked myself this question. What if I saw myself the way my friends and family sees me ? Attractive, powerful, loved without conditions, and worthy just as I am. If I see myself this way, I can love myself they way they love me. This has made all the difference.
Loving yourself is the way to taking care of yourself. This is where it all begins.
