171 Body Positive Affirmations To Help You Love Your Body

I love my body

As someone who has struggled with my body image my entire life, I understand why so many people have problems loving their bodies. In today’s world of Instagram influencers, Tiktok filters, and corrective surgeries, the pressure to have the “perfect” body has never been higher.  

However, comparing yourself to others will usually lead to unhappiness and negative self-talk. There will always be someone with a better job, more money, or even the body you wish you had.  

Rewiring your brain to stop the negative thoughts, and shifting them to more body-positive ones is difficult, but it isn’t impossible.  

This is where body positive affirmations come in and why I have compiled a list of body positive affirmations to help.

170 Body Positive Affirmations 

Everyone feels differently about their body, and everyone is on different stages of their journeys at different times and that is completely okay.  

What is a body positive affirmation? 

A body positive affirmation is any affirmation, or positive statement that you repeat to help change your mindset around your body image. 

Will body affirmations help? 

While affirmations may not be for everyone, studies show that affirmations are effective in helping to increase your self-worth. This includes your confidence and acceptance when it comes to your body. 

Loving your body might not be the goal for you. You may want to like your body a little more, learn to appreciate it better, or even become neutral when it comes to your own image of your body and that is okay.  

Whether your goal is body positivity, body confidence, or body neutrality, affirmations will help you to be less negative when you think about your body. 

What is the difference between body positivity, body confidence, and body neutrality?  

In order to understand how the following affirmations are categorized, and to clarify what you are searching for, it is important to review what each of the terms mean. 

What is body neutrality?  

Body neutrality means you don’t feel positivity or negativity towards your body. You feel neutral.  

For many people, body neutrality is a more realistic goal when it comes to body image. When it comes to years of self-hatred and being conditioned to not love your own body, it can be a struggle to go from hating your body to loving it just like that.  

This is why body neutrality is a great place to start. 

For the new readers who may not know my story, I spent the majority of my adult life overweight, and am still considered to be plus-sized. I found it much easier to focus on achieving body neutrality before I could work on learning to love my body. 

What is body positivity? 

Body positivity is the next step after body neutrality. It means that you have positive thoughts and feelings towards your own body.  

What is body confidence? 

Body confidence means not only do you love your body, but you are confident in it. You love and appreciate your body for exactly what it is. 

Which one should be your goal?

This will all depend on you. Depending on where you are in your body image journey, how much work you are putting in, and how often you are repeating the below affirmations will determine where you will end up on the body image scale.  

The important thing is just to start, and you can always see where you are and adjust your goals.
