Accentuate the positive
Monday, December 09, 2013
I was reading a church publication today, and the subject of accentuating the positive was brought up and I realized how important that is for us on this journey. It is too easy to beat ourselves up when we slide backwards or make bad food choices, but instead we should look for what we are doing right and give ourselves a pat on the back. I too often think about the 150+ pounds I need to lose, rather than thinking about the 33 pounds I have lost in the last 3 1/2 years. So I need to remind myself of how I have accomplished this, and forgive myself when I give in to an ice cream here or there. And if I fail, then get back on track and forget the failure and work toward the next success. Hope everyone has a great week!
