    Often women think they can only love their body if they hit a certain number on the scale, feel good in a certain size, or fix something they don't like about themselves. Post this manifesto on your bathroom mirror, at your desk or in your favorite journal. It will show you how to make loving your body a new habit - and get you closer to building a life you love.

    Loving your body is not an outcome, it's an input.
