    Admit it, You're Terrific
    Learning to praise yourself can keep you on the diet track.

    Here's what happens: you're about to go to the gym, when you think, "Why bother? I'm already so out of shape and overweight and lazy, I might as well just sit here."

    Your negativity crushes your chances at changing your life AND your body.

    In the same way you taught yourself to be your worst critic, you can just as easily teach yourself to be your most loving coach. Success begins when you stop being so hard on yourself and celebrate everything you have going for you.

    Try this simple exercise:

    What do you like about yourself right now? Take out a piece of paper and make a list of all your likeable qualities. Keep going until this list is as long as you can make it. You might include things like: I have sexy eyes, I have thick hair, I can make people laugh, I am a good cook, I'm creative, I'm trustworthy, I'm a good friend, or I'm intelligent.

    Keep adding to this list as you get in better shape. In fact, read it to yourself whenever you get the chance.

    Positive thinking can help you develop self acceptance and body confidence. So go ahead and like yourself. Right now! :D

    Hi D_Q,

    I think for most of us that has to be the hardest and the most difficult exercise of all as it does become such a negative habit of beating ourselves up...

    I use to scowl at myself as I passed a mirror now I try and make myself smile...just that one little act makes me laugh now and brings awareness into my life about how hard I was on 'me'...I actually think my frown lines are not as deep as they were before I started this diet:rolleyes:

    "A work in progress":eek:

    Love Mini xxx

    Praise yourself

    Hi Everyone


    I found this post made back in 2006 by DQ and I think it's great.


    "Try this simple exercise:

    I'm starting my list with :

    I have happy smiley eyes
    I am an optimist
    I like to make people laugh
    I try not to take offence (it makes life so much calmer)
    I am a positive person


    I think this is a great idea.:)

    Love to hear your great qualities.
