Be true to yourself!

I believe that our emotions can take a toll on our weight! Be true to yourself and to God and don't let others bring you down! If someone doesn't have a good thing to say about you, then I say turn around and say something nice to that person and let them know that they are special!

Allowing myself to mess up

I used to let one small screw up derail my weight loss plan for the day, or sometimes week. Now I just learn from it and move forward with my plan. I know I'm not perfect so why should I get dissappointed in myself when I'm not?

Greatitude and Blessing Journals

Having a hard time staying on the positive side of life? Try keeping a Blessings journal, writing down all the things/people you have been blessed with.
Also start a Gratitude Journal, writing down EVERY little thing you are grateful for, hairbrushes to water & see how your life lights up :)

What you Perceive, is What you Believe!

Whatever it is you want in life, the outcome is determined in a large part by your attitude toward it and about it. Yes, losing weight is difficult and sometimes long, but so was becomoing overweight a long process. When you think you just can't anymore, read the success stories of those who did.

Take ownership of your life

You - and only you - have the power to make changes that will improve your life. You control your destiny. Where you are today is because of choices you made in the past, and where you will be tomorrow is because of choices you make today. Embrace that power and choose to live a healthier life.

No Flogging!

I had to change my mindset for times I would "slip". No more beating myself up... now, it's "A new opportunity to be successful!" How lucky am I that I can start again? I don't wait for the next day to start fresh... I do it with the next MEAL! Soon the little successes snowball to big success!

Stickers

Just discovered stickers. I have a monthly calendar that every day I exercise, I put a sticker on the day. It is encouraging to see when you can go for different lengths of consistent stickers. And sometimes, it even encourages me to do it when I don't fell like it, just to keep a streak going.
