6.) If the people you admirer's appearance did not matter to them then why should yours to you?
7.) Think of your body as a pleasure source. What are something's that you like or admire about a particular body part.

10.) Walk with your head held up high, supported with pride and confidence in yourself and a person.
11.) Don't let the weight of you body determine what you do on a normal day. Do what you enjoy, and have fun at it.
12.) Wear comfortable clothing that you are not afraid to be in, and that you are not afraid to show to others.
13.) Remember to count your blessings, and not your blemishes.
14.) How much time do you spend looking at your body in disgust? Just don't do it! Look at the good, or nice qualities that you have, and be proud of them.
15.) Did you know that each month your skin replaces itself, every five days your stomach lining, every six weeks your liver, and every month, even your skeleton! Your body is a pretty extraordinary thing. Now respect it and appreciate it! You owe it to yourself.
16.) Become an expert on your body, challenge the authority of the fashion magazines, the cosmetic industry, the Metropolitan Weight Tables by allowing your beauty to shine throughout your personality, and brighten a new day.
17.) Be one of your bodies allies and advocates. Don't let your body be your enemy.

29.) Look to find the beauty inside yourself.
30.) Last but not least, remember this note: "Beauty is only skin deep."
