Hi Carbochip! I dropped off Sparks for a few years and regained all of my weight plus more. I just got back on here a couple of weeks ago after seeing the scale top off at 234 pounds (after being all the way down to just under 170 only 3 short years ago). Glad you're still around and still working on your goals. Donna 2503 days ago
Hope you are doing fine! I'm thrilled it is SPRINGTIME.
I've been reading "The BECK Diet Solution" which isn't a "diet" book at all, but how to change your THINKING and learn to think like a THIN person. I recommend the book as Dr. Beck teaches how to stay motivated. Here are some reasons to tell yourself that you WANT to keep going:
1. I’ll look better. 2. I’ll be more attractive. 3. I’ll be able to wear a smaller size. 4. I’ll be able to wear nicer clothes. 5. I’ll like what I see in the mirror. 6. I won’t feel so self-conscious. 7. I’ll be healthier. 8. I’ll be able to exercise without discomfort. 9. I’ll live longer. 10. I’ll feel better. 11. I’ll have more energy. 12. I’ll be fitter. 13. I may actually have romance in my life! 14. I’ll like myself more. 15. I’ll feel like I’ve achieved something important. 16. I’ll be MORE CONFIDENT. 17. I’ll have more self-esteem. 18. I’ll be less self-critical. 19. I’ll be more outgoing. 20. I’ll do more things! 21. I won’t have to listen to anyone commenting on what I’m eating. 22. I won’t have anybody bugging me re: my weight. 23. It might help my career. 24. I might make friends in the vicinity. 25. I might get a new love life. 26. My back won’t hurt any more. 27. People won’t make snide comments behind my back. 2591 days ago
Hope you're having a great week! It's been freezing cold here in Ohio, and I'm thinking of a warm, sunny beach to stay warm. So glad that you get to enjoy that beautiful California sunshine throughout the winter months!
Weekend's right around the corner -- let's make it a good one!
