a 1 for a lb

To keep myself positive each time i lose a lb i put a 1 in a savings jar/tin that can not be opened until it's full. That way I'm not tempted to spend and know by the time comes to empty it i can treat myself.

Avoid the Negative

If something or someone is giving you problems that are really bringing you down and you catch yourself saying or thinking negative things, follow that thought up with a positive one. Turn that negative thought into a positive one and get your attitude back under control JUST FOR YOU!

It's Only Temporary

Keeping in mind that I can help to change the condition of my body even a little bit, helps me keep my mind in a much happier and better frame of mind.

Sing In the Car

I sing in the car, all by myself, along with the radio. I use the steering wheel as a drum at stop lights. I can only imagine how i look to other drivers..but i really dont care, and figure they probably get a smile out of my silliness too. This usually puts me in a good mood as I drive to work.

Got behind

I fell behind in my blogs and tonight I did 3 parts on one so I am caught up to Tuesday. I always am writing on the wee hours of the next day so be patient. I try hard to keep up on my spark point page but sometimes it is hard as I am sure others have that problem too. I'm busy during warm weather.

Create your own worry time

Instead of worrying all day about things I can't fix right away, I set a specific time of day to do nothing but worry over those items. I take 10-15 mins a day to just worry. Then I push it away. My mood stays positive by knowing I can worry later.

I'm not going to quit

I may have a bad weigh in or a day of bad eating but I still jump back on track. Instead of completely backsliding and constantly feeling sorry for myself, I look at how much weight I've lost so far; why go backwards now? So if you fall down, get back up, brush yourself off and keep it moving.

Getting started

I keep making promises not to eat out so much and it never works. So today, I stop making promises and just focus on not doing it.
