Staying focused

When you're having a bad day, doubting whether you can reach the finish line weigh out the equivalent of what you have lost in lbs- then you can ask yourself if you really want to wear that weight again!

Just do it!

I have found that by just doing it all, the exercise, the healthy eating, the positive self talk, putting myself around healthy people. All of this is helping me to continue in the right direction with my health and my weight.

I have PCOS, It Doesn't Have Me

I do not let the fact that I have PCOS effect how I live my life or the fact that it makes weight loss harder then it does for other women. I make the most of my life as it is and each day at a time I progress towards my goal!

Surround Yourself With Positive People

We each carry and share energy. When the people around you are positive the energy uplifts you and makes you feel and do better. When the people around you are negative, the negative energy has the opposite effect. So surround yourself with positive people!

Watch your words

When making food choices say to yourself 'I choose not to eat that' versus 'I can't eat that'. You'll feel in control instead of feeling deprived.

When I feel depressed

When I feel depressed I listen to uplifting Christian music or I write poetry to help me deal with emotions but one thing I find that really helps is when I choose to be active because it instantly uplifts me too.

Happy Face Balloon In My Room

I recently bought some helium balloons at the nearby dollar store. They make me feel celebratory in down times. There's a happy face balloon - bright yellow- floating over my bedroom ceiling. It reminds me to smile and lighten up.
