Still No Laptop :(

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Well, still no laptop, just checking in real quick. Have been losing weight slooowly, but steady, which is good. Had the flu off and on for weeks now, hard to eat, crackers go down well, but do NOT help with weight loss! Flylady helping for the last few days, progress not perfection. I am chipping away at all my 'hot spots', and it is making a difference.

I was looking for a book on daily affirmations, or daily motivations.. couldn't really find any! So I took some note cards and wrote as many positive things I could think of. Things like "This time I am doing it for ME!", or "I am doing better today than yesterday" you know, cheerleader sayings! Things that are on a positive note to keep me on track. When I feel weak or wanting to eat something that is not good for me, I read or write some of these cards and keep them in my recipe box. I am the only one that can make this happen for ME. I am the one to suffer or celebrate my choices.

Every choice I have made has got me to where I am today... I will use the tools I have to create the life I want. I will do better today than I did yesterday.

I am at 267 or so, but it's that time of the month... my next appt. with the nutritionist is on Tuesday the 8th, will let you know how it goes...

Love and hugs, =Rose

ps If you have any inspiring sayings, I would love to add them to my collection with your name so I can hear you cheer me on my journey as well :)

    I was recently wondering about you and how you were doing, clean forgot your laptop died. Glad to hear you still sound positive and are doing it for yourself.
    Keep going because YOU ARE WORTH IT.

    Found a bunch of inspirational things on Pininterest. The two that caught my eye enough to stay in my brain are:

    "Remember yesterday when you said you would do ........? Well, yesterday is now today! Get busy!"

    "If your food can go bad, it's good for you. If it can't go bad, it's bad for you."

    I like, Fill your life, not your stomach. Change your mind and change your body. Weight lost surgery is stomach surgery not mind surgery.

    I have not loss ___lbs. of fat

    I have got "Rid" of the fat

    I have NO intentions of finding the fat again !!

    Good to heard from you. So, glad you are making progress.

    Hugs, Judy

    So glad to see you are still making progress. You deserve to be happy and healthy!

    When you feel down or about to take a misstep, or just need encouragement to stay on course, just talk to Jehovah immediately. He is waiting for you to put your burden on him. We cannot take a step without him.

    Great idea. I tell that to a sister that we help. I have her put them on sticky notes though and tack them up all over the apartment where she will see them where ever she is. emoticon on your progress.

    Your affirmation cards/box is a great idea. Good for you.

    Moving slowly is A-OK so long as you are moving and not stagnating. GOOD JOB, ROSE!
