How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
My husband likes the saying if Momma aint happy aint no one happy. It is important to have me time. I plan time for myself every day to ensure I get my exercise in. If I take time for myself I have more to give to others in my role as mom,etc
The easiest way for me to do this is to be kind to the morning cafeteria workers who swipe me in; they become so happy that someone is being sincere and kind, that it just makes me bubble over with happiness and makes it impossible to not start the day happy!
Me not eating 5 hours before bed every night helped me to lose 40lbs in 4 months. When I started eating before bed I gained my weight back. It was hard for me to lose weight when I was eating 5 hours or less before going to sleep.
Believe you can do it.
Donít forget to eat.
Write everything down you eat.
Learn new cooking techniques.
Handle cravings sensibly.
Tame your temptations.
Look at healthy foods in a new light.
Face emotional eating head on.
I actually saw this quote at a retail store awhile back. Since then, I've been working on the positive thoughts. It's a work in progress :)
When the scale doesn't cooperate and you know that you are doing things right. keep going and trust the process. Pounds are not always fat.
Taking time to dress in clothing that is attractive as well as makes you feel good helps you stay positive as well as motivates you to work forwards your goal.
When I'm feeling "blue," I find if I do a deed for someone else like hold a door, pick up something dropped, give a compliment, say hello to a stranger, etc., I always feel so much better
For me whenever I am upset or worry about something. I start to clean. I clean things that required a lot of time and By the time that I finished my emotions have passed. Instead of eating Ice cream which I was doing before.
