Okay so I have to confess! When I first joined a new team challenge "happy losers". Part of the set up was posting 50 positive affirmations. I HATED it!!!! I rolled my eyes and it took me forever to think of 50 nice to say about myself that didn't seem, ummm, corney. Then, later another challenge to add ten affirmations a week! HOLY COW!!! It was hard enough with 50. I started searching the web for some ideas. That was when it hit me. It isn't just about saying "I'm a good mom". It was about the other stuff, the things we forget. The words that we needed to be reminded of. Now I look forward to my 10 affirmations challenge. I know I need to be reminded of what I have the strength to do. Here are a few of my affirmations:

1. I believe I can lose weight.
2. I believe I am worth the time I spend on a heathier me.
3. I do not give up easily
4. I am going to beat the “my whole family is fat, its in my genes” comments
5. I want a change in my life
6. I Love being active
7. I am the first person out of bed each morning.
8. I think of others and their feelings
9. I'm a courageous fighter who is all heart.
10. I am strudy and steady which gives me power and control.
11. I have the drive and the discipline to master any art form I desire, no matter how long it takes.
12. I am a force to be reckoned with.
14. I am willing to learn new things
15. I will use the new knowlegde

My favorite is 13, when I have bad days, when my scale sticks, when I feel like I just can't take one more step while jogging.... I think of number 13.

    I'm afraid all of my affirmations are corny. My husband has heard me reading them out loud to myself and the first few times looked at me like, "?o.k.??? strange weight loss team stuff.... got it..." Now I think it is causing him to want to compliment me to encourage the whole "feeling better about myself" thing. We all do need a good old fashioned self-brain washing. It is good to sit there and review ourselves and know who we really are inside and that we should be proud of who we are.
