    the recent passing of your friend certainly lends to introspection and loss of positive feelings. to honor her, you could set out on a hunt for positives that you enjoyed together, or that you know would make her smile too

    Being positive on a daily basis is something you CAN achieve. It takes a conscious effort daily at first. For me, it's habit now. I'm sure I'm a lot older than you, so give it time and don't expect it to become a habit over night. Just insist to look at situations during the day differently. Eventually and I do mean eventually it WILL become habit and you will be the one that is happier and lives longer for the effort.

    Please dont give up! We all have bad days and even bad seasons. I have a hard time in the winter losing and staying positive too; and about losing weight; but maintaining and not overeating can be a challenge. Try and stay focused and just aim for doing one thing a day and keep track of that and how you feel. And remember it did not take a day to built Rome, but it did only take oen bad move to get it destroyed! So keep positive and aim forward and dont look back, just press forwards and to a mark or goal; and you will see some improvements. Time will tell!

    Sometimes if you just measure things a different way can make slight improvements that you cant see on a scale, but your still aiming forward and hopefuly you will see a change. Even if its just a small inch on the elbow, or fat turned to muscle, but you can see it will take place. It may take a little longer for you to see than another; but believe me fat turns to muscle eventually if you work at it! And before you know it, you will have made a loss; even if its not any significant amount of weight; ot will happen eventually! So dont look for the scale to give you any clues, look to how you feel and measure yourself in other ways.... like how many inches the flub is on your elbow! Take a measuring tape and measure each inch and you will notice a change. a Loss comes eventually when you exercise and eat less. Its bound to happen if you just be patient! Be positive abd it will happen! A weight loss takes time and patience! (I know been working on it for three years. It may go up and down but eventually we will find the right formula for ourselves and the weight willl come off! THen we will see the muscles! But just know measuring can be a very fine line when any change is to happen. But change does take time and many times it is a slow movement like the minute hands on a clock; you dont see it and then you do, second by second and the same with any other change. You may not see it at first, but its coming and it will take place... it just takes a LONGER time for soem people like you and me! But .... Please dont give up, and think positive... then change will come. Just like the seasons; one day at a time and before you know it we are in a new one. Think Seasons of change. And get motivated! Walk today and then you will be able to run next year! Or sooner if you are motivated to change. Change begins by how oyu think and on a consistant level! Take chareg of your ehalth for no one else will do ti for you! Get motivated! emoticon emoticon emoticon
