Self-affirmations for positive body image

1 ALL OF GOD'S CHILDREN ARE BEAUTIFUL.

There are no ugly babies, right? Shower yourself with the same love and kindness you would give to an infant.

2 I LOVE MY THICK, STRONG THIGHS.

Why wouldn't you? They allow you to walk, hop, skip, skate . . . Try to replace your inner critic with an inner bestower of compliments.

3 AFTER ME, THEY BROKE THE MOLD!

Instead of trying to measure up to some impossible ideal, joyfully celebrate what's unique about you.

4 I DON'T WISH TO BE ANYONE ELSE.

How about seeking your own true self, and wishing to be you?

5 CHECK OUT MY SLAMMING POTENTIAL.

It's unlimited! Every day surprise yourself by mastering some small challenge.
