Mind over Body Image
How you feel about your body has a lot to do with the state of your mindset and vice versa. This doesn’t mean you have to be super skinny or meet anyone else’s expectations. It means that you need to accept and feel happy with yourself just as you are.
Sure, you can set yourself goals to shape up and get healthier – it’s always good to improve your fitness.
You can increase your self-image by accepting where you are now and setting clear and specific goals of where you would like to be in the future. How would you ideally like to look, weigh and feel?

Try this for a Positive Mindset:
One thing you can do to help develop a positive body image is to get in the habit of reading and writing affirmations each day. Affirmations are short positive statements that you can repeat when necessary or write out for yourself to post in areas where you'll see them several times every day.
Focus on your positive attributes. If you have beautiful eyes, post yourself a reminder about your beautiful eyes near the bathroom mirror. You might be struggling with weight loss goals, but you still have your beautiful eyes. When you hold onto a positive feeling, it gives you a drive and a glimmer of hope. This positive attitude will make it easier for you to reach your goals!
