I've been on this site since 2009, off and on. My weight has gone up and down.
What I have learned so far:
One, small, good, healthy choice can lead to another and another and another.
One step repeated by another step can lead to miles walked.
One positive thought can lead to a smile.
One affirmation repeated can lead to better choices.
Cheering one other person on makes me think less about myself and makes doing the right hing more automatic.
Each day I struggle. Each day is faced with millions of decisions. Each day I have to tell myself "I DESERVE TO BE HEALTHY". And I have to repeat that over and over again. When I reach out to others and cheer them on, it makes me feel better. Feeling better in a positive way, makes me choose better. Giving in to negatives NEVER works to boost a healthy decision. Changing my mindset is important to getting this weight off and getting stronger and eating better. Changing my habits will take time, daily. But it will be worth it because I DESERVE TO BE HEALTHY!
I like challenges.
I like getting trophies and goodies and noticed.
I feel motivated when I know someone else cares.
I like the feeling I get when I push myself hard.
I like feeling successful.
All of those likes will keep me going!
Oh, and: I DESERVE TO BE HEALTHY!
