WE can do this!!!

Even though I'm proud of the 40+pounds that I've lost since I've been on sparkpeople, sparking has improved my life in so many other ways that the mere fact that I've lost weight doesn't seem as significant (even though it is, for health reasons!). I'm just as so happy to be part of this wonderful community of friends sharing a similar journey!
You know what made the difference for me? The 5% Challenges . . . Fall, Winter, Spring, now Summer! They are awesome!

Thank you Carol for the support and encouragement. I'm surprised my doctor recommended the hiit workouts too. I'm not sure I can really do all of them, but I'm starting with a beginner's program. I was camping all this week and just returned so I haven't started yet. I'm definitely going to take your advice on the self pep talk. Hope you had a great week.

GIVE YOURSELF a little "Pep-Talk" today! But this time, talk to yourself using "the second person" (like "I know YOU can do it," instead of "I know I can do it"). We have been conditioned our whole life to perform for others--receiving support & directions from family & teachers when we were growing up, so we respond more positively. Talk to yourself like you would talk to your dearest friend . . . with encouragement, compassion, love & support. emoticon
