Talking with Friends

By talking with my friend, we keep each other on track and up about losing the weight, even if we do slip up once in a while! 2 steps forward... 1 step back.. always 2 steps forward though!

"Hum your Favorite Hymn"

I find when I am down, how much better I feel if I sing a familiar song. Something with a catchy tune and a positive message. This takes my mind off of the negative and puts a smile on my face.

Make it a point to say something positive to just one person each day. You can make them smile and they will pass it on.

a 1 for a lb

To keep myself positive each time i lose a lb i put a 1 in a savings jar/tin that can not be opened until it's full. That way I'm not tempted to spend and know by the time comes to empty it i can treat myself.

Avoid the Negative

If something or someone is giving you problems that are really bringing you down and you catch yourself saying or thinking negative things, follow that thought up with a positive one. Turn that negative thought into a positive one and get your attitude back under control JUST FOR YOU!
