A good way to start to feel better about your own body is to "fake it til ya make it". Or to act "as if". In other words, to carry yourself as if you felt you were the hottest thing since slice bread -- even if you don't -- yet. Pick someone you know is okay with herself and copy her attitudes, her behavior.
- What would this self-confident woman say to herself?
- What would she say to other people?
- How would she move?
- How would she treat her body?
I once read that it is "easier to act your way into thinking, then to think your way in to acting". You may not feel it today, but just keep at it -- and before too long you will. Better yet -- once you feel good about who you are, you will inspire others to do the same just by your example.
