Don't always believe what you're told

What I do and what I am doing is more for me them anyone else, but at the same time while making myself healthier I am going to prove a lot of people wrong. So when I wake up in the morning, I know it's my life and I am becoming a better person while also erasing doubt from everyone elses mind.

Tell myself daily "I love me"

Starting the day with "I Love Me" is my daily dose of compliment and motivation. Any one else that compliments me is an added bonus and motivates me even more, but i already know that my daily dose started my day with a smile.

Your dreams will come true.

So put on a smile,

Three Times A Day

I set my alarm on my IPhone to display the following message 3 times per day : "One day, one step, one meal, one action at a time I will begin to make positive choices for my health and wellbeing".. it is a constant reminder to focus on me and my goal of healthy living.

Visualizing Success

As I wake up, before getting out of bed, I visualize a successful day - staying within range nutritionally, exercising and seeing me fit, trim and healthy. I picture my meals, I see myself working out and I picture me wearing my Aloha print sundress!

Staying focused....

I stay motivated by setting and achieving small goals. When I switched my thinking from wanting to lose 25lbs and just focused on losing 5 or 10lbs the weight came off. This gives me something to look forward to and then I can move to my next small goal.

Stay encouraged sparkies.

Downers

When things get tough---family issues, friends, lonely, food issues, etc.---there is no better place to go than your teams for support. There is always someone to help. If not, then you are not on the right teams---find teams that will support you in the good and the bad.

The Reward of Feeling Great

The reward of knowing I am going to feel great, sleep peaceful and soundly, breathe better and look better is all the motivation I need to keep me going. I know how I felt before I made the lifestyle change and I don't want to go back to that again.

Reward yourself

Reward yourself with new smaller clothes instead of food. When you go in that store to find a new outfit, the satisfaction is much greater when you can shimmy into a smaller jean size than to go around the corner and order a piece of cheesecake.

God is ........

When I tackled this on my own , of course, I wasn't very successful. Now it is no secret to me that God wants to Be involved in every aspect of my life. Why not , He did create me. Thank You Heavenly Father for Your Love & Guidance , everyday. God.
