    Give yourself a healthy weight pep talk today:

    Whenever I sit down to eat, I am determined to achieve my goal. By never giving in and eating right, I will reach my healthy weight.

    I really enjoy eating less, whether in a restaurant or at home. I don’t have to finish the food in front of me anymore. I eat what I should and never one bite more.

    When there is less food on my plate, there is less food on my fork. By ordering less when I eat out and giving myself small portions at home, it keeps me aware of staying with my goal each day. Less on my plate means less on my waist.

    I will not allow anyone to influence, tempt, or discourage me in any negative way. Reaching my goal is up to me. No one has the right to control my success.

    I am losing weight for my own reasons; for my life, my future, my personal health. No one will tempt me to take one more bit than I should. I am strong. I can reaching my goal.

    A lot of food in front of me is no longer a problem. I just say no to the food and yes to my success.

    I enjoy sitting down to eat because it gives me time to conquer my past and create a more active, self-confident, and healthier future.

    I don’t need someone else to remind me of my goal or to keep me from eating something I shouldn’t. I’m responsible for myself and my body. No one can do it for me.

    It’s easy for me to control my weight and appetite now. I enjoy smaller portions and smaller bites. I eat slower and am more relaxed in every way.

    I am healthier.

    Mealtime is achievement time for me."

    Just a little progress

    Even just a little progress, is progress. Even the smallest step forward is very much worth taking, because it maintains a positive momentum.

    If you’re not moving ahead as fast as you’d like, don’t get discouraged. Get creative, get inspired, get focused and get truly enthusiastic about the direction you’re going.

    Then, take the next step, and keep yourself moving steadily toward the goal. Remind yourself that even when you’re going slowly, you’re going solidly in the direction you’ve chosen.

    Yes, the setbacks will certainly come, and when they do, you’ll know exactly how to quickly recover because you’ve been doing it all along. Get back up, face forward, and take the next step.

    Even if it were possible, you wouldn’t want all your dreams to be fulfilled at once. It’s far more satisfying to savor each milestone as it comes, and to know that there will be many more.

    Spend this day celebrating, enjoying and making use of your chance to make a little progress. Feel how great it feels to continue moving forward.

    For Christmas

    May you have joy
    in the mad rush
    of preparation;

    May you know peace
    in the tiny margins
    of time around
    the busy days;

    May you have star-shine
    in clear night skies
    for looking at;

    May you have silence
    now and then;

    and, above all –

    beyond all else –

    May you have love
    to give
    and to receive.

    (Elizabeth Searle Lamb)

    Merry Christmas!

    Never Quit.

    If you stumble, Get Back Up.

    What happened yesterday No Longer Matters.

    Today’s another day, so get back on track, stay on track, and move closer to your dreams and goals.

    YOU CAN DO IT!

    Recipe for a Merry Christmas

    To a cup of tradition, time-honored and dear,
    Add a generous portion of holiday cheer,
    Combine with the memories of Christmases past,
    Then sprinkle the mixture with joy unsurpassed.
    Add a dash of good spirits, stir fondly until
    You set it to rise in the warmth of good will.
    Pour love over all in generous measure,
    And garnish with laughter and heartwarming pleasure.
