This is a Mental Thing

Do not think of losing weight as simply eating right and exersizing. It is a mental thing. You have to have a positive attitude and focus on the end results, not the struggle ahead. Take each day one at a time, one foot in front of the other. You WILL achieve what you set out to do.

There is no such thing as "try"

When I get ready to cop out I do this little exercise to help keep me on track The neat thing is you can use anything to make your point

Pick something up
Dont pick something up
"Try" to pick something up

You can either pick it up or you cant. There is no such thing as Trying

Lose the word "Can't"

When people tell me that I can't do something, it just pushes me to more. Don't ever let someone or even yourself make you feel like you can't do anything. I always said "I can't run a mile to save my life". The word can't just pushed me more and now I say "I can run a mile".

Secret?

My secret is that I’m sure there is no secret. I think most of us know what we have to do, but fail to do so. We need support and friends for that. And this is the most important secret, isn’t it?

something on the slate daily

To remind myself everyday no matter where I am, I find a wall and will do at least 10 wall push ups toward my exercise quest for the day. That puts something on the slate from which to build each day.

I look at my Flab

Before I head down for breakfast, I will look myself just in my undies in front of the mirror. The flab on my tummy is a reminder that I shouldn't overeat. I also have photos of myself and my large tummy that I occasionally look through while eating my meals.
