Personal Responsibility Sparks Change

Hi there. I'm a 30 year old mom of three boys (ages 3 and under). My youngest is 4 months. I started this journey about 4 years ago and lost around 40 lbs. I'm back on the journey again after having my kids and plan to lose 50 more lbs. I'm working on the couch to 5k program and eating lower carb/sugar. I suffer from Fibromyalgia and that is one of my biggest obstacles to weight loss. I love to meet new people and I thank God and give him credit for all my successes.

JULIE2BTRUE has lost her first 20 pounds, since starting over again!!!! THANK YOU, for your SUPPORT!!!!
********************************
Just 22 more pounds, and I can start where I left off, at 263. One of my goals is to fall below 200. It AMAZES me that I only have 86 pounds to lose, in order to achieve this.... (As opposed to the 106 that I started over with, over a month ago... GO ME)

And Julie says with a big smile, "I believe I'm going to make it, sweetie!"
Thanks again, Julie

Here are some examples of affirmations you can use to SPARK your journey, or you may develop your own affirmations that you can "own." Each day, write or say aloud your affirmations, and BELIEVE in YOU!

I'm on the road to fitness.
I am feeling thinner today.
I'm losing weight now.
I look and feel lighter today.
I'm enjoying how I'm feeling now.
I love the feeling of making progress.
I love the food that makes me thin.
Losing weight is effortless.
I am going to fit into the next size smaller any minute.
I enjoy being healthy.
I'm making things easy for myself now.
My body is getting stronger, slimmer, and healthier every day.
I feel so thin inside, my outer is just about to catch up.
I love to challenge myself.
I deserve the best.
I am a SUCCESS, because I am striving to reach my goals.

To help with having your own inventory of nourishing words and phrases, write two affirming sentences on index cards, place them on your bathroom mirror or on your refrigerator. Read them first thing every morning and last thing at night as a reward to yourself for sticking with your plan.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Weight loss quotes...

1. Quitting is NOT an option.

2. Your body keeps an accurate journal regardless of what you write down...

3. It comes down to a simple question: what do you want out of life, and what are you willing to do to get it?

4. IT'S NOT ABOUT HOW GOOD YOU ARE BUT HOW BAD YOU WANT IT!!

And last, but not least important....

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hugs and kisses to you, dear!
Have a SPARKLING WEEK....
Julesy
