I've decided that just knowing what I need to do to change my habits isn't enough to get me started. I have started wearing simple jewelry with hearts and stars. This gives me a visual reminder to love myself and that I am a superstar in my own right. The key is to accept your self-worth as something of true value. We forget this simple fact on a daily basis, and sometimes are our own worst enemy. We need to love ourselves to make these changes we already know we need to make.
Don't underestimate splurging on yourself. I'm currently rocking hot pink sparkly toes. I gifted myself a lovely pedicure at a spa. I also bought new make-up to remind myself that I have great features, and they can only look better as I get healthier, and people start seeing it on my face.
