See yourself in a positive light.
Shar-pei dogs have luxurious folds of soft skin. they're really cut. After WLS, people develop folds of skin as they lose weight, but most don't find those folds cute. To tolerate the folds rom and emotional standpoint, it's important to look at things froma kinder perspective.
Use positive affirmations and selft talk to help you accept (and even admire) your new appearance. After all, you're not morbidly obese anymore. Your health has improved. And you have energy and abilities that used to be out of reach. The positive benefits beat the negatives bar far - ifyou look at your situation with nonjudgemental eyes.
Action for the day:
When you look in the mirror today, smile and pick out something you don't like about the way you look. Don't leave the mirror until you think and feel something positive.
