Count Your Blessing

If you look at everything you have, and if it was taken away from you, be thankful for the things you have. As the Bible says, if we are thankful for the little things we have, God will bless us with the big things! Think on these things!

Smile at Everybody (Including Strangers)

When you look directly at someone and smile, it is difficult for them to not smile back. This little bit of acknowledgement can go a long way towards making people feel important. Nothing feels worse than feeling invisible.

new day

each day is a new day. If you fall off track, pick yourself up and start fresh the next day. One bad day won't ruin all your hard work if you can keep going!

Imagine Yourself at Your Very Best for Your Body

I have a great imagination, but never before had I used it to see myself at a smaller size. My advice - take a good in the mirror. Try and imagine your waist a couple inches smaller, your rear a little tighter, etc. Do this at least once a month and really notice all the wonderful changes!

If you've been complimented, remember it for a future occasion.

Whenever I start to feel negative, I try to remember how far I've come.

Guaranteed Positive

Whenever I'm weak or feel the negative thoughts and feelings creeping up, I just go to SP and read some member blogs/vlogs. It ALWAYS reinforces my determination, helps me with the weak moments, and the "I Can't Do It." attitude. I AM doing it. Love you SP! too!
