I grew up thinking and talking negatively about myself. When I was at my heaviest I called myself names and made jokes about myself constantly. I would tell my friend she was as big as my thigh, that my maxi dress could be used as a tent, called myself fat all of time, and more. If I made fun of myself and said what people were thinking I believed it wouldn't hurt as much.
My husband and a friend of mine began to be really annoyed with me. So when I began my weight loss journey I knew I needed to start talking to and about myself differently. In the beginning I had the bright idea of calling myself "chunky" instead of "fat." I did that for a while, but they were still really annoyed with me. Plus now my trainer was telling me to stop.
It started slow for me. I began by accepting compliments and making less jokes about myself. In the beginning it was uncomfortable. It has gotten easier, but I still have a long way to go. I just keep pushing forward and try to be nice to everyone around me and myself!
Say something nice about yourself in the comments!
