- When you learn to love yourself, you start to see your body as sacred. You’re less likely to want to put things into it that poison your body.
- When you get to a place where you love yourself, everything changes, everything gets better.
- Emotional eating and emotional spending are the same problems.
- There’s a mourning process when you have to change your diet.
- Counseling or getting a coach can really be helpful because it provides that outsider’s perspective to the self-sabotage that happens when you’re trying to lose weight.
- Healing your mind requires love.

“[Losing weight] isn’t just about the food. If it was about the food, we would all succeed, because if you can set the emotions aside, you can actually stick to a plan and not feel bad when you can’t have cake at a birthday party.”
“Loving myself didn’t mean giving up on being healthy. It meant coming from a place of love rather than a place of hate.”
