Minimize the negativity

I have never been a positive person. Lately, I have been focusing on the positive things that have occurred since beginning my healthy lifestyle instead of the negative. This has profoundly changed my outlook in life in general, not just with weight loss and healthy living.

Time to Lose

I did not gain all the weight I want to lose overnight so I should not expect to lose it overnight. It will take time and the older I am, could impact the speed at which I lose.

Vanity

I have really learned that there is nothing wrong with vanity as my motivation. I *know* that I should be motivated by wanting to be healthy, being a better mom, etc... but honestly, embracing my vanity has helped me stay motivated more than anything.

Ditch the "All or Nothing" Mentality

Setbacks are a part of life. Someone will bring in cake for a coworkers birthday. Your special someone will surprise you with dinner out. You'll have to work late. You'll get sick. These things happen. Just because you have an unperfect moment doesn't mean the entire day or week is lost.

Cell phone - Not just for talking

I use a motivational picture as my wallpaper on my cell phone. I am reminded of my goals every time I pick up my phone and it is with me where ever I go. My ticker is really going in the right direction since I did this!

Share your successes

By sharing my success during the first few weeks, I discovered how amazing it feels to be congratulated! Before I spoke up, my friends noticed a difference in me but didn't say anything for fear of embarassing me. By letting them know I enjoy talking about it, I opened the door to their praise!
