Day 9 of the 10 Day Positive Attitude Challenge

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

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!

    It takes a while to realize that some people who should be nicest to you can be worst.

    You have made wonderful progress!

    This was a great post! Congrats on Chalean Extreme and keep it up!

    I am really happy to not have any negative people bringing me down in my weight loss and affecting me with my body image. The only negative person I can think of that could fall into this is my best friend. She is very supportive in my weight loss and with this journey, but she is negative when it comes to everything else in life. Every little thing that goes wrong is the biggest deal and always with a negative perspective. She is graduate from the University of Illinois and is dating a loser who works at Burger King..I mean come onnnn! She blames this attitude on being in a rut in life. I am making progress and moving forward, and it is just drag that she is stuck in this hole of negativity and bullsh*t

    I have two things that are currently making me proud. The first is, that as of today, I officially lost 20 lbs! So happy! The second thing is, is that I am graduating from Columbia College Chicago with a bachelors degree in Music Business on May 15th! I couldn't be any happier.
