How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
I am working hard at liking myself. I can look in the mirror and look at a positive change I see in me instead of what I think is bad about me. I give myself pats on the back for a job well done!
When I first got heavy about thirty years ago, I let myself completely go. I turned into a slob. My mother took me shopping and made me vow to never leave the house without makeup and a hairdo. She said to me, "You were always an attractive thin girl and you can be an attractive fat girl, too."
Giving glory to God keeps me positive!
Can't change yesterday, can't predict the future but I can control today.
Today I choose to stay in Faith.
I have the Lord on my side. He provides me with love, support and encouragement.
I keep a gratitude journal. I keep it by my bedside. Every night before falling asleep I write down three things that I am thankful for that happened that day or that is present in my life
Happiness is a Choice.
Just use what you have to get healthy. No need for elaborate shopping or routines. Keep it simple.
When you fall, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and begin again. Don't worry be happy.
I am by myself and my 2 dogs and days go by without another human voice. I could be really depress but I look at all I have and have had and I am thankful. I know God is with me each day and gives me the strength in my mine body to continue on. I am not rich materially but I am in other ways.
