Healthy Inspiration from SparkPeople

Motivational Quote - If you don't love yourself before, you won't love yourself after. Adore your body at every weight.

SparkPeople's Comments

If you can't love yourself at your highest weight, chances are that you'll still have a hard time loving yourself at your "ideal" weight. Self-love is about so much more than a number on the scale. Take baby steps every day to treat yourself with the care and respect that you deserve: Practice journaling or talking to a counselor, take long, thoughtful walks, and nourish yourself with healthy foods. It can be a long, difficult journey to achieve self-love, but it can be done with a little bit of regular TLC.

I adore this quote. It's so true. And I desperately needed to read this right now. I always hate my body, then I gain more weight and wish I was back to the point before. I need to stop doing that and be happy with the way I am and celebrate when I make healthy choices in my life.

This is the way it was with me as I was losing weight. A love hate thing going on until I finally realized what I was doing. Great quote.

I wish I'd seen this quote as I was losing weight. I had a love hate thing going for a while. This one is going on my bulletin board. You SparkPeople have done it again. Thanks.

This is so very true. You can expect someone else to love you if you don't love yourself
