Small wins = big results

I am focusing lately on the positive decisions I make each day that help me reach my goals rather than the times I may make poor choices. While I get that the positive choices need to outweigh the poor to experience weight loss, I'm focusing on training myself to focus on how I'm making an effort in this journey. In the past, I have been tempted to focus on all of the negatives, making me much more likely to give in to the "I've already made so many bad decisions I might as well give up" attitude. So, I've vowed that I will not listen to my inner fat girl when she tries to make me focus on the bad. Instead, I'm waking up thinking that each day is a new opportunity to make LOTS of positive choices, making me feel much more empowered! I can do this!

    No body is perfect, and we all make bad choices time to time, but the thing is don't beat yourself up over it. Put it behind you and push yourself to make better choices. If you don't dwell on what you your slip ups your attitude will change to positive. Don't say you are on a diet. We think of diet as limitations and it is hard to stick with that. Think of it as a healthier life change. Sat small goals, like I am going to cut out one cup of coffee, or one soda, after awhile you don't miss it and you can cut more. Things doesn't happen overnight. Go slow and sure. And when you slip up. Think of what you could of done instead, but don't beat yourself up over it. It takes time to make changes, and the changes will become everyday life. Have a great week-end. emoticon
