The Secret to Loving YOURSELF


Imagethe-secret-to-socialmedia-42.jpg

“You’re so stupid!" "You’re never going to achieve that, you should just give up!” “I can’t believe you did that, you ruined everything!" Would you let your best friend, spouse or children speak to you like this? Of course not! Then, why on earth do we talk to ourselves like this?!? We are all guilty of shaming ourselves in the privacy of our own minds (or maybe even out loud for others to hear!); it’s this type of “negative self-talk” that gets us into trouble and sets us up for not only feeling badly about ourselves but also failing to meet our goals.

So, what do we do? How do we learn to love ourselves just the way we are?

There are three factors that contribute to your self-concept and your degree of self-love:

  1. How you SEE yourself – We all compare ourselves to others and we use things like our physical appearance, how smart we think we are, the attributes we have and our skill set to determine what our “image” is. If you have a negative view of yourself, you will tend to match and therefore precipitate that image by the way you choose to live your life. In order to improve the way you see yourself, focus on what’s awesome about YOU! Use the statement, “At my best, I’m...” to guide yourself in acknowledging the things that make you special and worthwhile.
  2. What you SAY to yourself — Stop talking to yourself like you are your worst enemy! Eliminate what we call, “junk talk.” This type of talk only serves to bring you down; instead, replace your negative, disparaging vocabulary with a positive spin. For example, instead of saying “I’ve never done this before...I’m probably going to royally screw it up!” spin it positively with something like, “I am a competent person and this is just an opportunity to learn something new!”
  3. What you BELIEVE about yourself — As the Little Engine That Could would say, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!” What you believe about yourself goes hand in hand with what you tell yourself. That Little Engine had the right idea. What you tell yourself over and over again, over time, becomes your reality.

So, what’s the secret to loving yourself? Tell yourself how wonderful you are! Every. Single. Day.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
