As bariatric surgery patients, we know the importance of creating healthy habits and routines to support our journey towards a healthier lifestyle. One powerful way to set the tone for a successful day is by starting each morning with positive affirmations. By telling yourself empowering messages, you can cultivate a mindset of resilience, determination, and self-belief. In this blog post, we will explore four things you can tell yourself each morning to create a successful day.

Affirmation #1 - "I am capable"

The first thing you should tell yourself each morning is, "I am capable." Remind yourself that you have already taken a huge step towards improving your health by undergoing bariatric surgery. You have shown courage, determination, and strength in making this decision. Believe in your ability to overcome challenges and reach your goals. By affirming your capabilities each morning, you will boost your confidence and set a positive tone for the day ahead.

Affirmation #2 - "I am worthy of self-care"

The second thing you should tell yourself is, "I am worthy of self-care." Weight loss surgery patients often struggle with feelings of guilt or unworthiness when it comes to prioritizing their own needs, women and moms especially. Remind yourself that self-care is not selfish — it is essential for your well-being. By acknowledging your worthiness of self-care each morning, you will be more inclined to make choices that support your health and happiness throughout the day.

Affirmation #3 - "I am resilient"

The third thing you should tell yourself each morning is, "I am resilient." Weight loss surgery is a journey filled with ups and downs, setbacks and successes. Remind yourself that you have faced challenges before and come out stronger on the other side. You can overcome all moments of the uncomfortable. Cultivate a mindset of resilience by acknowledging your ability to adapt, learn from experiences, and keep moving forward no matter what obstacles come your way.

Affirmation #4 - "I am grateful"

The fourth thing you should tell yourself each morning is, "I am grateful." Practicing gratitude has been shown to improve mental health, increase positivity, and enhance overall well-being. Take a moment each morning to reflect on the things in your life that bring you joy, comfort, or inspiration. By expressing gratitude for these blessings, big or small, you will cultivate a sense of abundance and contentment that will carry you through the day with a positive outlook.

Starting your day with positive affirmations can make a significant difference in how you approach challenges, make decisions, and navigate obstacles as a weight loss surgery patient. By telling yourself, "I am capable," "I am worthy of self-care," "I am resilient," and "I am grateful" each morning, you can create a foundation of strength, self-love, perseverance, and gratitude that will support your journey towards better health and well-being.

Remember that every day is an opportunity to start fresh, embrace growth, and believe in yourself — so why not begin today? Start your day right with these empowering messages and watch as they transform not only how you feel about yourself but also how you show up in the world.
