Not beating myself up as much as I used to. Taking pride in my accomplishments. Helps that I’m getting positive reinforcement from my older girls. Have recommitted to exercise and weight loss. Wouldn’t have done so if my self-esteem hadn’t improved a bit.

Here is an msn article about being nice to yourself. It’s predictable but maybe it’ll help to see the words written on a page and then follow the advice.

Someone suggested that being more assertive is one way of taking care of yourself. I can stand up for others but I tend not to stand up when it comes to the things I need. This has to change. 12 months ago
I am definitely treating myself better now than I have in the past. I’m doing more things for “ME” now-a-days. I’m losing weight & feeling great. I’m eating waaayyy better now than I ever have in my life I think. I buy myself little “somethings” to celebrate my on- going progress…little things like: bubble bath, candles, objects with dragonflies on them (I love dragonflies), plants, etc. I owe it to myself…I’m worth it!! 12 months ago
You bet I’m treating myself better…I’m worth it!! 13 months ago
Speaking of treating myself better, I’ve been doing this since back in April when I first went on my eating healthier plan. I’m taking care of myself in more ways than one, which means I’m treating myself better…
Admiring the progress I’ve made
Frankly…I’ve got it going on!! 13 months ago
I treat myself everyday by being myself. I go for walks every evening (and sometimes in the morning). Sometimes I pick wild flowers to go on my dining room table at home. I lingered in the bathroom afterwards just either taking a long hot shower or a soothing bath. Sometimes I shut myself in my room and enjoy a good movie. I do it for me! 13 months ago
Went for a leisurely walk this morning and picked some pretty wild flowers for my table. Nice walk (3 miles) 13 months ago
Tried to go for my walk before it rained but I didn’t make it. I got caught in the rain. It was so enjoyable. I felt like a kid again. It did me good! 13 months ago
Though I didn’t give myself anything special, I did go for a walk with my daughter & a couple of friends, which was nice. 13 months ago
Another hot bath by candle light…ahhhhhh! and afterwards, a foot massage. 13 months ago
Today I treated myself with a little massage. I did it myself, not at some massage parlor. I used cocoa butter lotion and massaged my feet, legs & arms. I loved the feeling of my skin afterwards. It did wonders for my tired aching feet. 13 months ago
Yep, it’s high time I treated myself better. I’ve been mean to me. So tonight, I took a nice hot bath by candle light. It was wonderful.
And, I put myself on an eating healthier plan to get myself away from soft drinks and junk food. I’m feeling so much better. 13 months ago
I have the thought of treating myself better ever since…. but rarely (never) execute it…
I always wanted to treat myself with some material stuff or some ME time but the rationalism hold me back; “that’s totally not worth”, “not now, what about next time”....
and I just realized I’m sick with this. eventually it led me to a condition that lack of motivation and enthusiasm in doing certain things.
why not treating myself with something really NICE? I’m totally worth having it! and of course moderation is the key.
No next time, I wanna treat myself better in NOW !!! ^^V 20 months ago
Does anyone have suggestions for doing this? 2 years ago
