Accentuate the Positive! Eliminate the Negative!!
This will be a constant "battle" if we allow it. I am changing my vocabulary to more positive phrases!
Less than optimal food choices instead of slipping, sliding or binges. I am not on a wagon, therefore I cannot fall off it!
Fluctuations instead of weight gains.
3-5 pound weight range instead of expecting the weight to remain constant.
I was a closet eater for too long! Now I enjoy myself and the next morning I face the consequences of my actions (scale).
This is a lifestyle change - but I refuse to be on a diet for the rest of my life - I am more than willing to continue tracking though!
If you encounter a "3-5 pound weight range" just lift your arms.
WARNING: Do not lift your arms if you having been sweating recently or it is late in day and you have not shower, bathed or applied deodorant recently.
I believe this is going to be with me for a long time! (looking thinner by lifting my arms!)
