18 Healthy Self-Esteem Quotes for Successful Weight Maintenance

Getting fit doesn’t solve all our problems. As we get closer to weight maintenance, we discover things we don’t like about our appearance. When we were fat, we blamed the fat for disliking our looks. When the fat is gone, we have to accept being fat wasn’t the only thing we disliked.

Saggy skin, stretch marks, and many other changes happen to our bodies as we gain and lose weight. Unfortunately, some of these changes are permanent. That’s why we must learn to love ourselves as we are. Unless you have cosmetic surgery, you can’t change your appearance. Acceptance is the only way. How does acceptance compare to surgery? Acceptance is cheaper, quicker, less painful and there’s no risk of death.

Are you ready to love yourself as you are? Use these healthy self-esteem quotes to start loving yourself.
