  1. Thanks for this video! Acceptance really is key for me right now on my journey but can I ask how you would deal with accepting a weight that you are not happy at ? I entered recovery for binge eating disorder and bulimia at a healthy weight and since then I have gained weight. Thanks Dani hope to hear back from you πŸŽ€πŸ’–πŸŽ€πŸ’– xxxx

  2. You speak my mind!!!! Seriously the moment i started accepting who i am and what i look like, I started to lose weight and commit to a healthier lifestyle. Keep up the amazing videos.

  3. thank you so much for this… at the start of this year i went on a drastic diet and strict workout routine because i really disliked my body and wanted to change it. even though i lost 10 pounds, it was REALLY unhealthy and felt SO tired every single day. I always felt irritated at myself and by my surroundings and snapped at people. After 6 months, i was so tired of doing this and i completely stopped trying to be healthy. I binged so often and gained back all my weight and i thought this was "accepting" my body. But you're completely right that there IS a huge difference and we have to constantly remind ourselves of this!! I have been able to maintain a healthy weight by striving to eat healthy but definitely not restricting myself and exercising moderately with the mindset of because i love myself!! i love and accept myself and so i will do all this to improve myself, not for impressing others(": thank you for this video and stay strong everyone!

  4. I know this probably isn't gonna get seen and that's probably why I'm actually writing it out. What do you do when the even the idea of loving yourself (or even pretending to love yourself) is so foreign that it makes you angry or physically sick to your stomach?

  5. I'm struggling to understand how to be motivated from a positive place. What I mean is, I currently have this deeply rational understanding that a motivation to change must be inspired by being unhappy with the way things currently are. It almost sounds like common sense that you have have to be unhappy with something before wanting to change it. Unhappiness and change go hand in hand. At least, that's my mindset. I don't want to work from that perspective. Perhaps you have an eloquent way with wording gymnastics that can explain wanting to change but without acknowledging this unhappiness as the motivator.

  6. I am new to your channel, and I would just like to say that you are so inspiring! It is easy to get frustrated with finding the proper "diet", but I have finally realized what you discuss in this video and I believe that the more people that see this, the better!! Thank you for taking your time to share your knowledge πŸ™‚

  7. Thanks once again for putting it out there, plain and simple! I love you! (me) πŸ™‚ Okay I love you too Dani Spies!!! So happy to have discovered you and your videos, I always look forward to your next one, you are like a kind friend πŸ™‚ β™₯

  8. Thanks for this video Dani I have learned to accept my self and love my self but I have a hard time moving foward and improving, becoming a better me.

  9. This is just what I needed to hear. I have made so many excuses to not get a gym membership and I know I need to. I have worked overnights for years and now I do late nights. Also have a 5 year old, so I am always tired lol..I feel like I am almost to the point where I shall force myself to do more. Thank you so much for this video. You are an inspiration.

  10. Thank you so much for this talk, a few years ago I lost 70 lbs and had this way of thinking I took away the stress of always having to lose and making sure I got my exercise and it changed my way of thinking from it being work to being something I enjoyed.Β  Unfortunately due to health reasons I have gained it back and I am so trying to get back into that headspace and that way of thinking.Β  So Thank you so much.Β  hugs, Patty BC Canada

  11. I've made so much dietary progress using your advice. Whilst you're not vegetarian yourself, I stopped eating meat. That is something I'm deeply proud of. And it was you who taught me to be proud of myself & accept where I succeed & where I need to work on. I also now check all the labels of the processed foods I used to eat & cut out roughly 70% of them that contained unnatural ingredients or added sugar. I now make most of my food myself; and I've lost weight! I see food entirely differently now, as well as my own body. I respect myself so much more, even to the point where I feel attractive again. I still am not active enough, but I'll crack that nut when I come to it. For now I'm having fun fishing out all the junk food & replacing it with fruits, vegetables, grains, beans, etc.

    But the reason I wanted to make this comment was to point out how valuable the information in this video was when applied to other areas of my life. I'm very lonely, and I'm deeply depressed. But I'm making efforts to change that. What gets me down on a day to day level is the impatience I have. I can't accept the life I have now whilst transitioning to something better (hopefully!). I have to learn to find the joy & satisfaction in what I have now. Thanks for the video & wonderful thoughts.

  12. I got teary eyed just hearing you say that you love yourself and I realized in that moment that I had never said those words to myself. Thank you for reminding me that I love me!

  13. I've heard a similar idea to this before:
    God, grant me the the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And the Wisdom to know the difference.

  14. I appreciated this video and the simplicity of acceptance as you explained it. I have been living in severe chronic pain for almost 5yrs and received expansive medical treatment, alternative medicine, gone through counseling….. I am always fighting/battling the pain but it is a losing battle trying to get out of pain. I am trying to learn to accept/surrender to the pain and finding it a difficult battle as it is way too intense to ignore. I absolutely have to find a way to be ok living with this. Personally,
    I fight to gain weight as pain does not make your appetite thrive.

  15. I needed to hear this at this exact moment in time. Could be more appropriate for this bride to be who seems to be self sabotaging even though I know I have my wedding in August and I will feel so amazing if I can just get back to my juicing. Thanks. X

  16. I really love your channel, Dani! You're very inspirational, and I really relate to your advice and story. I've made tons of your recipes, and I've honestly loved them all. If there is any way I could ever talk to you about how started your career doing what you do, that would be great. I'm a business student in college, but I am really starting to rethink my path, and what I might do after college is over. and what path I should take.
    Thank you again for your wonderful videos. πŸ™‚

  17. You are an inspiration and so kind. I love your videos. Keep up the good work. We all have to be kind to ourselves when we are on the journey to good health and happiness. Thanks! Dana
