Get rid of the word "not"

So many focus on "I must not miss a workout" or "I must not eat outside of my ranges." Let's just wipe that word out. Let's flip those phrases. I'm strong enough to work out! I can eat healthy! I feel great when I drink water! Reminding ourselves of the positive aspects makes it so much easier

Count your blessings - literally

When things look dim for me - as it does for all of us from time to time - I write down 10 things that are good. Sometimes it may be tough to get to 10, but if you can think of 10 good things. maybe you can think of 5 more! And life isn't so bad!

NEVER say NEVER & ENJOY the Journey

If there is something I REALLY want to eat I give myself permission to eat it. I may limit my portion size, or adjust my eating for the rest of the day, but by using this strategy I have headed off the cravings, feelings of deprivation, and need to be perfect that would have made me give up before.

15 minutes of down time a day!

When my girls was growing up at home, we had a rule. We would all talk about the down side of our day for 15 minutes to each others. Then we would find the positive side of things. It makes for a brighter day! And a happier family.

Fall in love with yourself as is....

When you get in the habit of staying in love with yourself you naturally treat your body the right way. Forgive everything up to this point and just love yourself right now. There are so many worse things in the world than being overweight. If you can get past that a funny thing happens....
