, If you're not being treated with love and respect, check your "Price Tag". Perhaps you have marked yourself down. It's "you" who tells people what you're worth by what you accept. Get off the "Clearance Rack" and get behind the glass where they keep all the VALUABLES. Bottom line...VALUE yourself more! - Useful advice for all of us at times!!!

My mantra is ....well, one of them, I should say, since I have several to keep me moving forward and to stay on track, is: " Never give in, never give up and never surrender" Never give into the self doubts that sometimes want to overwhelm me, but if I do, I never give up control.
Not to the excuses, doubts or recriminations that inevitabily follow. Most of all, never surrender to those nagging thoughts that-- is it worth it, or more like, am I worth it?...for the answer to that is "YES, I AM SO WORTH IT!" Surrender is not an option.
One thing that has made a major difference in the way I look at eating well and exercising is that I try to treat myself with the courtesy and respect I would give a special guest in my home. Why would I treat myself as "less than" someone else, and then expect great results?
Treating myself with kindness means I try to avoid negative self-talk, I gently nudge myself into making better choices in food and activity, and I celebrate my successes, even while accepting my normal human weaknesses. I am so worth it!
