Food Affirmations for Weight Loss

Every bite of food nourishes my body and my soul.

Food noise. Many of us who face challenges with our weight experience it throughout our lives. It's that background noise about food where you start thinking about what you're going to eat at your next meal while you're still eating this one. It's the constant background chatter about food and eating, and it has been there for so long that you barely notice it anymore.

Affirmations for Self-Love and Self-Esteem

I accept myself unconditionally.

We can be pretty hard on ourselves — we're usually kinder to everyone else than we are to ourselves. This includes the ways we think about and speak to ourselves. 

Notice all the unkind things you say to yourself. Now, imagine what it would be like if somebody else ran next to you, screaming all those unkind things over and over at you every hour of every day. It would suck, yeah? You probably wouldn't feel great about yourself, yet this is what many of us do to ourselves. Pay attention to when you think negatively about yourself, and replace the negative thought with one or more of these affirmations.
