  17. 17. Let’s practice Self Talk  “I got up this morning and the breakfast our family was eating was gross. I didn’t eat it and now I’m hungry in my classes. My teacher keeps asking me to get started on my work but I am so hungry I can’t concentrate. I have to ride the bus home from school because my Mom has work today. I hate the bus. I hope we aren’t having Lasagna for dinner.”  I got up this morning walked to my bathroom and started getting ready for school. I couldn’t get my makeup right and my hair was even worse. Now I have to try and avoid Seth, the boy I like. I can’t let him see me like this. My clothes are getting to tight! Ughh! Why can’t I look like Kailey. She has it all.
