Body positivity can be tricky, but Sherri McMillan walks you through how to love yourself, your food and your exercise.Quoted From: https://nwpersonaltraining.com/blog/body-positivity/
"If you believe that you"ll be happy once you lose weight, you"ll never be skinny enough to be happy. It"s a vicious cycle and it never ends unless we learn to love the body we have as it is right now, not tomorrow or next month or next year.
It"s ok to want to make health improvements to be at your personal best, but you can"t hate and despise the state you"re in now. Making these lifestyle changes is about believing you deserve to be healthier! Love yourself enough to take the time out to exercise and eat well.
It"s not about making the changes so you can look like someone else or love who you are. If you make changes with this as your ultimate goal, it may be tough to succeed and you may be miserable for life! Body hatred and dissatisfaction are hardly reserved for only the morbidly obese. In fact, many women who clearly have very little body fat to lose, are not happy with their body proportions.

One aspect of gaining control and developing a more positive body image is understanding the role of negative and irrational thinking. We are often our own worst critics and can be so hard on ourselves. Listen to what you say."
