I love this. One of the posters on an exercise site I like made a play on the Marines Creed.

This is my body. 
There are many like it, but this one is mine. 
My body is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master 
my life. 
My body, without me, is useless. Without my body, I am useless. 
I must move my body true. I must run faster and be stronger than my enemy 
that is trying to overcome me. I must conquer it before it conquers me. I
 will…
 My body and myself know that what counts in this life is not the size of 
our clothes, the shape of our figure, nor societies standard of beauty. We
 know that it is the experiences that count. We will live…
 My body is living, as a part of me, and through it I experience life. Thus,
I will learn it as a friend. I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths,
 its parts, its movements, and its possibilities. I will ever guard it
 against the ravages of judgment and damage as I will ever guard my soul and
 my heart against damage. I will keep my body clean and ready. I will accept 
it as it is and as a part of me. I will… 
Before the world, I swear this creed. My body and I are the defenders of my 
life.
 We are the masters of our obstacles. 
We are the saviors of my life. 
So be it, until victory is mine and there are no regrets, but a life well
 lived!
