Love your body! The body you have now, could be someone elses goal!

There are people who would love to be under 300lbs, 250, 200 etc. Before putting yourself down for not being where you want to be, remember there is someone struggling to get where you are now. Stay positive and learn to love every stage, and plateau.

When things get tough, the tough get going!

Look around - when you think you've got it bad, someone always has it worse!
Surround yourself with positive people...supportive people.

handle one crisis at a time

Don't think that you have to solve world hunger, the energy crisis and the world's financial crisis in one sitting-stand back and allow yourself to breath! Take little steps because they all add up to big steps. Remember 2 steps forward and maybe one step back!

People make plans and God Laughs - so now I laugh too

I thought I was a pretty positive person until I met my friend Sue. While I was grumbling and getting angry she had this ability to laugh despite things going wrong. Lost? Hahaha, we are on an adventure! Behind schedule? Like the last of a row of piglets running into a barn. One day the house

need to feel more upbeat? listen to something upbeat!

When I'm feeling negative I always find that it helps to listen to an upbeat, positive, empowering song. Sheryl Crow's "Soak Up the Sun" is a great choice!

Think Positive

For every pound you lose think of something that you've gained! (ex: getting healthier) And even if you don't lose pounds, think of all the good that you are doing for yourself anyway!
