Fighting Negative Talk

Back in February when I was feeling low, a lot of you mentioned you felt similarly. Since then I found a lot of great ideas and tips to help combat negative self image. I thought I'd share what I found and hope it helps some of you as well.

10 Ways To Stop Fat Talk For Good-Weightless is a great blog with lots of great information about eating disorders and negative body image.
Body Image & Self-Acceptance-Another great post from Weightless.
Happily Overcoming Depression- The Art of Wise Living is a great blog with a wonderful message about positive life goals.
The Fat Girl's Guide to Being Irresistible-Even To Yourself-The Fat Girl's Guide talks about all sort of topics relating to living life, happy in your skin.
Women's Magazine: Body Shame and Subtle Messages-One reason that I stopped reading women's magazines.
What We Can Control-Sally has such a positive message and I love how she talks about body image and celebrating all body types.
Boost Your Body with a Mantra-Going from negative thoughts to more healthy positive thoughts.

And I have 2 songs that also help me get through anything:

The Middle-Jimmy Eat World
