Don't talk to yourself in negative terms.
Would you tell your friend who is struggling to build consistency in exercise "You'll never do it." Or would you say to your neighbour "You don't stick to anything you start."
Then why say it to yourself.
Today use phrases that will help and not hurt. Be positive and not negative.
Words to say to yourself....
You've been adding those fitness minutes to your routine. Good for you."
"You've gone three days now with out going over your calorie count."
Just as you would for your best friend,
find words to encourage and not discourage;
build up and not tear down;
cause a smile and not a frown;
foster a sense of accomplishment and not a sense of defeat.
Okay, self, now don't you feel better? Are you going to buckle down and try to keep the momentum going?
Self replies, Yes, thanks for the boost, it's just what I needed today.

I discovered some fascinating, awesome facts this week as I was going through my closet looking for clothes that would stay up. I looked and tried and pondered and wondered then I smiled, laughed and then did an improvised jig.
I noticed that my X's have moved....
All my x's live in ??????
I no longer have any clothes with a 3x marked on them. Could not find one sweater, pair of pants or skirt with a 3X on them. Gone. They got way too big last year.
I pinched myself to see if I was really in the real world after I went through my closet again and I couldn't find any labels marked 2X. where oh where have the 2X gone????
At this point I was absolutely sure I had died and gone to heaven but then I reckoned if I had I should see a white robe or two in the closet but no, none there.
The third survey of clothes labels and tags showed me I only have a few items left with 1x on them but even more eXciting is the new position of the X on the garment. Many of my clothes now have the X in this position "XL" I haven't seen them placed like that for nearly 20 years.
So yes it's working, the Spark People program. Yes, I'm working... working out that is.
Yes, my X's are moving.... OUT.... OF.....MY..... CLOSET.
Yipee, Whoopee, Hurrarah, whatever.... X's
