I also realized that I was sabatoging myself also had to do with being scared to have to adhere to new standards set by others. This is important to bring up. As soon as I got to a certain weight (in between 140-143), my dad's standards for me began to change. Instead of congratulating me for the good I was doing, he was nagging me about what I was eating, etc. I rebelled by doing exactly what he didn't want me to do...and it was a viscious cycle that just was hurting me. This was a huge component to my problem as well.
Recognize people who are negative and keep them out of your hula hoop. Your opinion is the only one that matters! How do you think these people effect you personally? What can you do to make sure they aren't effecting you? Are you aware of what these people are doing? Do you realize that negative people are just negative because of their own insecurities?
What is one thing that you are doing right now that you are proud of? Are you giving yourself credit--no matter how big or small? How are you going to make sure from now on you are giving yourself credit? :)
Love you guys!
