Quotes to Boost Body Image
There are some days when no matter how much positive self-talk we give ourselves; we just can’t feel good about how we look. Use these quotes to gain perspective on what is truly important in life.
“To lose confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in oneself.”
― Simone de Beauvoir
“Even the models we see in magazines wish they could look like their own images.”
― Cheri K. Erdman
“By choosing healthy over skinny you are choosing self-love over self-judgment. You are beautiful!”

“Body acceptance means, as much as possible, approving of and loving your body, despite its “imperfections”, real or perceived. That means accepting that your body is fatter than some others, or thinner than some others, that your eyes are a little crooked, that you have a disability that makes walking difficult, that you have health concerns that you have to deal with — but that all of that doesn’t mean that you need to be ashamed of your body or try to change it. Body acceptance allows for the fact that there is a diversity of bodies in the world, and that there’s no wrong way to have one.”
― Golda Poretsky

― Cheri K. Erdman
“Eating is not a crime. It’s not a moral issue. It’s normal. It’s enjoyable. It just is.”
― Carrie Arnold
“We are beautiful because we are sons and daughters of God, not because we look a certain way.”
― Kate Wicker
“Step Away from the Mean Girls…
…and say bye-bye to feeling bad about your looks.
Are you ready to stop colluding with a culture that makes so many of us feel physically inadequate? Say goodbye to your inner critic, and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others.
This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you're too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
― Oprah Winfrey
