A New Year--A New Me!

I have been losing and gaining weight since I was just a kid. As long as I kept active, I seemed to be able to keep it under some amount of control. The problem is, I'm not naturally active--I'd rather sit, watch TV, read, knit--all very sedentary activities. But, I've reached THAT point where I think, "this is enough." It's time to make a change--no matter how hard it will be. And I know it will be hard to lose 175 pounds!

Hi- Welcome to the EE team! Great place for support, and encouragement, and a place to vent if you need to!

10 Positive Assumptions

1) I will make and keep my commitments.

2) I will find the right people who can help me.

3) I will look for an answer in every problem.

4) I will give up “trying” and simply do.

5) I will make it okay to be wrong and make mistakes.

6) I will create my own “good luck”.

7) I will not be afraid to lose before I win.

8 ) I will do it now!

9) I will be who I am and become what I was meant to be.

10) I will accept that all things are possible.

-Robert Anthony, in his book “Betting on Yourself”

Hope to see you on the message boards! Have a great week!
Tina
