Sometimes love is telling myself NO! No to buying that dress I don’t need. No to eating that slice of pizza that is not on my food plan. No don’t go through the drive thru at Dunkin Donuts. No don’t flirt with that young man. No don’t buy that scratch off. No don’t go to that function and spend money you don’t have. No to giving in to my addictive nature in whatever form it shows itself.

Today I will love myself by not doing the destructive behavior I know will hurt me in the end. For a moment of pleasure, I will suffer the consequences and I’m diligently working on treating myself better today.
