What will you GAIN when you lose?

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I actually paid attention to a TV commercial this morning rather than fast forwarding through it and loved its message! It was from Special K cereal. They state that today, January 2, is Gain Day. They want you to think about what you will GAIN when you lose weight.

"Today is the day to stop worrying about what we want to lose and focus on what we will gain." Love their new mantra! Here are the words that flashed on the scale when various people got on to weigh:
~style~ ~confidence~ ~satisfaction~ ~presence~ ~moxie~ ~joy~ ~courage~ ~pizzazz~ ~resolve~ ~momentum~ Don't you love this?
What would you add to this list?

Since I'm still in a cast on my left leg so can't weigh, my first weigh-in of the year won't come for a few weeks. But, my jeans still fit nicely, so I know I've done okay the last month of being sedentary! My scale will say ~PRIDE~ when I step on it again the next time!

What will you gain when you lose?

    Susie~ yet again a very good blog that is very thought provoking. I will really have to soul search and find out what I can add to this list.

I hope that your healing is going well!!!

    Love this positive way of thinking. Instead of stepping on the scales with trepidation I'll remember this. Thanks.

    Great message. How much more positive to think in terms of what your health eating and exercise plan will gain for you.
I will gain a sense of pride and self control.

    What a great idea to focus on what you'll gain, rather than the number on the scale!!! I will see DETERMINATION!!
