Affirmations for Binge Eating

While I go through phases of being super into using affirmations, I find them helpful when I can remember to be consistent with them! Affirmations resonate with some people and not with others, so play around to see if it’s something that’s useful to you.

I’ve found that developing some kind of daily ritual with affirmations helped me remember to actually use them more often. Over the years I’ve experimented with a variety of different ways.

Some of my favorite affirmation practices include:

  1. Write them in a journal you love with delightful pens.

I love inspiring journals and colorful pens. Experiment with drawing or doodling the affirmations in your journal and spend time every morning meditating on them or reflecting on them. 

  1. Put reminders in your phone. 

If you use your phone often, you may like the hourly/daily phone reminders of your favorite inspirational affirmations. I’ve used this one but need to change them up often, so I don’t just hit “ignore” and not really let the them sink in. Experiment to see if this is something that helps you use the affirmations during the day. 

  1. Put them on post-it notes. 

I’m more of a paper person and love some colorful post-it notes! Write down your favorite affirmations and post them on your mirror, computer, desk or anyplace else you want to remind you to pause and affirm. 

  1. Say them out loud. 

This may not be for everyone (especially if you live with others) but try it out to see if it resonates! You can recite them in your car, in the shower, during a meditation, on a walk or any other time during the day when you’re alone. 

Here are 7 affirmations that I’ve used on my own journey and with clients to help overcome binge eating.

These affirmations are helpful whether you’re working with a coach or guiding yourself through overcoming binge eating.

  1. I am so much more than a number on a scale. 
  2. It is safe for me to feel the discomfort of moving through an emotion without eating. 
  3. I am worthy of love, no matter my size. 
  4. I am enough. 
  5. I can’t please everyone, and that’s okay. 
  6. I am allowed to trust myself and my body. 
  7. I am learning to let go of bingeing as I get my needs met in other ways.
