This is my second Spark People account. I deleted my first because it was too depressing to see all of those failed attempts at a "new me"; I needed a fresh start. Because this really isn't about a creating a "new me." My old me is just fine; I just need a little tweaking. I really find it frustrating, though, to constantly cut through all of my negative self-talk. I'm constantly catching myself saying little things like "this is just like all of those other times... you'll never do this" and I actually find myself physically rolling my eyes at myself. I know that I need to get over that crap before I can actually move on and get on with my life. The problem is that I just don't know how. I try to combat those thoughts with positive responses, but I just keep getting more and more jaded.
Does anyone out there have any advice at getting over this damaging and frustrating practice? Any tips, books on the subject, etc?
