Treat Ourselves with Tenderness

'Self-love seems so often unrequited.' ~ Anthony Powell

'This seemingly Sisyphean task of weight loss could be your best opportunity to learn how to be your own savior. Now is the time to be kind to yourself when you fail and congratulate yourself when you do the right thing, before you're as thin as you want to be.

Because it's not going to magically happen when you hit a certain number on the scale. I know this because not one student - not one - has ever, in 30 years, told me that she was kinder to herself when she lost weight. But every single student has told me the opposite: that when she gives herself what she wants most - treating herself with tenderness - no matter what she weighs, she already has what thin will give to her.'
