Love Your Body Pledge

1709 LYBW SOCIAL MEIDA2

I pledge to 

  • Develop and celebrate body confidence throughout Love Your Body Week!
  • Start learning how to love my body however I am feeling, however I look and wherever I am!
  • Not criticise my individual body parts and let size dictate my self-worth, because I am a whole person
  • Realise that it is a journey of understanding. It is not about trying to conform to an idealised body image
  • Stop giving the scale power and stop letting the number it reads determine the success of my day
  • Stop the fat talk, in regards to both myself and others and fight back against my negative thoughts
  • Try and not compare my body to others
  • Not be affected by negative appeals of the media
  • Be grateful for all the things my body allows me to do, instead of fixating on the size of my body
  • Remind myself that bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and that no matter what shape and size my body may be, it is worthy of kindness, compassion, love and nourishment
