Postive attitude....

Sunday, July 21, 2013

This quote comes from the Spark Diet steps:

"Keep a positive attitude
Several studies have shown that optimists reach more goals than pessimists. They see more success not because they fail less often, but because they get back up more often. People with positive attitudes see setbacks for what they really are. When you have a setback, itís not a brick wall that must be climbed (or that can stop progress altogether). Youíve merely met a gate; it may delay you for a second, but if you open that gate and move through it, youíll soon be on your way. "

I am always walking through that gate! My weight loss is sporadic! I don't lose, don't lose, don't lose, but then I lose 3 lbs. One lb comes back and then I lose 2lbs!
It is frustrating, but if I got upset every time it happens, I would be upset ALL OF THE TIME! emoticon emoticon
I just have to remember that the lbs will come off, but it takes time! I just keep eating healthy and exercising! I keep reading articles and doing challenges! I know that this works, I just need to be patient with my body! It surely has been patient with me!

Spark People has made all the difference in the world!!! My attitude about weight loss had changed drastically since I have been here! I realized that a negative attitude sis not do anything to help me along! In fact it just made it harder for me!
Now that I have a positive attitude, my life has changed! I see every setback as a way to improve myself! I have more patience! And I take on more challenges!
I know now that I can only improve! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Have a wonderful Sunday!

    I need to take this to heart. I get so frustrated when I fall that it takes me forever to get back up. Thanks for sharing this.
