These blessings are from a larger ritual for those undergoing bariatric surgery. They can also be used as daily affirmations for those struggling with issues around body image, or who are quitting smoking. They can be read in place of, in addition to, or independant of the traditional Birchot HaShachar (Morning Blessings). You are encouraged to print them out and post them on either your bedroom mirror or refrigerator.
