{Rediscovering My Spark} Half Empty

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

Are you a “glass-half-full” or a “glass-half-empty” kind of person? What are ways you can start to think and act in a more positive way?

When it comes to my progress in losing weight I can definitely be a very “half-empty” type of person. I look in the mirror and compare myself to what I used to see in that mirror. I see the thinning of my face, but I don’t allow myself joy in that… instead I think of how much further I have to go. I step on the scale and automatically calculate how much weight I still have to lose rather than celebrating the loss I’ve had. It gets disheartening.

To move toward a more positive outlook, I need to stop comparing to what I once was and focus more on the progress that I’ve made. I believe setting smaller goals to achieve may help me with this. Rather than focusing on my big goal of getting back to 125 pounds, I will set smaller increment goals… and then reward myself (without food!) every time I reach one of these goals.
