be your own best friend

Treat yourself as you would your best friend. Be kind, loving, tolerant and, above all, forgiving of mistakes.
No-one is perfect.
You are worth it. emoticon

All or Nothing Mentality

What a relief it is to know that I have choices! It has been a long time coming after growing up in an environment where the all or nothing mentality prevailed.

Night and Day

emoticon Remember, to lay things to rest at night--not just yourself, physically; but lay to rest those things of stress, strain, and temporary failure. In the morning, just as your body is refreshed; so should your life. Start anew, and plan a new day--a new life.

ChampionSpeak

Talking to myself as a winner helps me banish the negative voice and keeps me pumped. I call it ChampionSpeak because I know that those Olympic athletes probably talk to themselves the same way and I want to get a gold medal too.

Reading Spark People Motivational Articles

I have 135 pounds to lose. Sometimes I wonder if I will make it. When I start to have doubts I love to read the stories of others who have lost as much or more than I have to lose. If they can do it I reason so can I.

Permission to Fail, Not to Quit

I am going to have good and bad days. I do not flog myself over every little misstep, but I also know that giving up is not an option and accountability is key. I note where I fail (and my responsibility in that failure) and make a measurable plan to help avoid that situation in the future.

Give to Get

When you are feeling blah, bored, useless, or need to just do something different, then give of your time.
When you go volunteer to help others the blahs immediately disappear, you aren't bored because you are physically and/or mentally busy. You can't feel useless. And it may be new for you. Do it

BOTTOM LINE FOCUS

IF YOU FOCUS ON WHATEVER YOU WANT AND THINK POSITIVE ABOUT IT NO MATTER WHAT IT IS YOU'LL HAVE IT.
POSITIVE FOR POSITIVE RESULTS
NEGATIVE FOR NEGATIVE RESULTS.

Have a throw-away day once a month

Have one unscheduled day a month, where you get together with your friends, have a movie marathon or whatever and eat whatever you want (as long as you're hungry- don't eat for the sake of eating!). It always helps me de-stress and therefore not become too uptight :)

Fowarding looking, forward thinking

The secret I have found is to always look forward..Indulged today ( or at one meal)? That's okay, its one day. One meal) .Track and plan healthy choices for tomorrow ( the next meal).
