Failure is caused by negative thoughts!

Friday, September 24, 2010

Your personal goals should be based on how your body responds to a healthy diet and exercise. I feel like I was beat down by a couple of people because I set my goal to lose ABOUT ½ lb per day. Maybe their body can’t lose that much per week but my body can! My exercise regimen consists of walking 8 miles per day. What does their regimen consist of?

In the last week or so, I put myself on a maintenance plan, no exercising but still watching how much I ate, so that I can try to maintain my current weight. I HAVE SUCCEEDED!!! I did not gain, I maintained! I have dieted before where I would lose the weight and slowly start gaining it all back. This time it is different! My weight loss is for life NOT for the moment.

Starting next week, I plan on walking 8 miles per day again. I WILL make this happen. In the next 2 months, I will be really close to my goal, if I have not actually met it. There will be no starvation, only healthy eating consisting of reduced portions and lots of exercise!

Don’t let anyone try to get you down! As for me, I am too strong to give in to negative thoughts. For those of you that have had this happen to you, keep your head up and move forward, don't look back!

    You go girl!

    I think when others see you doing so well, they don't like it for some reason. I just don't get that.

    One song I love to workout to is "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now". I don't know who sings it but it's on one of my mixed artist CD's. Gets me motivated and determined not to let anyone stand in my way.

    No truer words have ever been spoken. I have been telling anyone who will listen that the battle lies in your mind. I completely agree with you. We are the only ones who can stop us!
