My One year journey!!

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Hello......and so happy I joined Spark and rejoined my local TOPS group!! I got rid of 14# here with Spark and rejoined my TOPS groups 9/21/10 and got to my goal on 2/14/11 and have gone up and down 2-4# during this time, which is pretty normal. NOW, let me tell you, had I gone up 3-4# earlier, I would have caved and told myself I couldn't maintain and I'm gaining it all back....BUT NO MORE!! I am sooooooo done with the negative self talk and listening to those who say the same!! They are not the kind of people I want to be around! Instead, I talk out loud with positive words only, and I am here to tell you what I tell myself OUT LOUD almost every day, like: YOU ARE SO WORTH IT! YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY!! JUST DO IT!! ONE COOKIE IS ENOUGH..AFTER THAT, IT'S A BAD HABIT TO CONTINUE ON!! EAT SLOWLY AND ENJOY THE FOOD! I HAVE THE POWER, NOT THE FOOD!! I hope some of these work for you, or maybe you have your own, and for me hearing my voice helps a lot; it's different than just saying it in your head!! Go ahead, I know you want to try it if you haven't already!

Have a blessed day; make it so and Happy Valentine's Day too!! emoticon

    Barbara, I'M SO happy for you!!!!! Woooohooo!!! And THANK YOU as I needed to read this today. I've been very sick, and I think it's harder to speak against those negative thoughts when you're also physically down. I'm READY to FIGHT THE FIGHT again, and your words helped tremendously!!! This is a FOREVER journey!!!!! {{{{{huge hugs, beautiful}}}}
