Hey, you! Stop saying those things to yourself! You would NEVER let a friend talk to another friend the way you're talking to yourself, so why put up with it when someone speaks to you that way, even you? You ARE worth it. You ARE working hard at it. You ARE taking steps. You ARE smart enough, strong enough, dedicated enough to make it. You ARE NOT a failure. You ARE a wonderful, interesting, loved person and you ARE going to do this. Let yourself know how much you love you.

FIDWTE -- Food I Don't Want To Eat (Pronounced "Fidwit" or "Fidwits" in plural.)

You are not a rubbish bin. You are not a food disposal. Those are where you put FIDWTEs. Not into you! If you eat it, it doesn't keep it from going to waste/waist. It doesn't feed starving people anywhere in the world. Buy less next time! Or don't buy it at all! FIDWTEs are anything that won't actually make you feel good when you eat them. FIDWTEs are anything that interferes with your goals for your health and fitness. FIDWTEs are anything that will set you to craving other FIDWTEs. FIDWTEs are leftovers you never got around to eating. You are worth far more than some flippin' FIDWTE.

I meant for my comment "i'm so glad this is here" to post here, not at the top of the thread:-) It's late, and I'm tired emoticon ...I've been here WAYYY long enough to know my post would go to the top of a thread, not comment on the one I wanted to, like FB. I was/am glad lots of stuff is here, but was referring to "Just keep swimming" from Dory:-) It was "one of those days"...and this is a cool thread. Thank you. I read a bit from your Sparkpage, Casey. You helped. Best wishes--both to you and to all of us.........

Ok. You can do this!Open a couple of windows, let that fresh air stream in. Get that hair out of your face, wash your face and moisturize. Stand up straight. You've got this! Count to five and just do what you have to do, giving yourself no option to think about whether to do it or not.

yep, that voice tries to drown out the good stuff. The main deal is to keep on trying, right? emoticon

It is so heartwarming to see the people coming here and posting and taking pep talks. The support of the SP community is outstanding.

I'm sure it's pretty clear by now that all my pep talks are primarily aimed at myself, focusing on things I'm dealing with, but they're universal, aren't they? We all stumble, we all struggle, we all focus on what we're doing wrong instead of what we're doing right.

Anyway, here's my pep talk for today:

That little voice in your head that's telling you that you can't keep it up? Don't listen to it! You've seen all those people who've reached their goals, right? How many of them made it to their goal on the first try? I'm guessing zero. Yes, you've made progress before and lost it, but not this time. You've GOT it this time. You're going to hold onto it this time. You're not listening to that little voice because it does not have your best interests in heart. You're going to drown out that voice with your voice that LOVES you!

Today's pep talk is from that famous philosopher, Dory --

vimeo.com/101638077

The above is a video an animation student did of Dory and Marlin when she first tells him to

Just keep swimming!
(It's kinda cute.)

Hello, wonderful person! Don't think you're wonderful? You're WRONG! You may not be perfect, but you keep trying, you keep going, you keep picking yourself up, you keep learning, and you keep your eye on where you are going. That's WONDERFUL! Instead of beating yourself up, celebrate the fact that whatever you did is NOT going to derail you. You've GOT this!

You don't have to do it all today. All it takes is one step today. You can do one step! The whole journey may be too much, but one step today is enough. One step is AMAZING progress, because it takes you one step closer to your goals and one step further from whatever is holding you back.

Tomorrow, you can take that second step, but for today, take the first one.

Remember as you make healthy choices today:

One hour becomes a morning

A morning becomes a day

A day becomes a week

A week becomes a fortnight

A fortnight becomes a month

It all adds up and you can start RIGHT NOW

You are in this for the long haul. You don't want to take it all off just to have it all come back again. You're making lifestyle changes, and that means that sometimes there will be bumps in the road. It's hard to change habits formed over a lifetime, so celebrate the steps you have taken. For one, you're here! That's already ahead of all the people who haven't made a positive step to start working on their health. Take another step, and another, and another, and one day you WILL reach your goal!

Are you struggling today? That's ok. We all struggle. No one is perfect and we all have days where motivation is weak and our resolve seems to be hiding. We all have days where we have to really fight to avoid that delicious looking quesadilla for lunch (and, guess what, sometimes we fail!)

But it's ok. Your worth is not determined by a choice. Your journey is more than a single step sideways. Maybe you stumbled, but you are strong and can get back on track. Avoid feeling that all the celebratory posts on the community feed means that you're the only one having to work through cravings for junky food.

You've got this. You are determined and worthy.

You have overcome so much in life! You've faced obstacles and come out the other side. You may have scars, but you're healing and you know you are strong enough to survive. Your past does not have to dictate your future. You ROCK!

You're upset about something? It means you CARE. That's a good thing. The best way you're going to deal with it is by taking care of yourself. When you are healthy, taking care of everything else becomes easier. Take that upset you're feeling and use it to make a change!

You are WAY ahead of where you would have been if you hadn't started. Just being here on SP shows you know what to do and you're going to do it. You may be struggling, but keep struggling and you're going to make it.

Wow! You are an AMAZING PERSON who has decided to care of your health and fitness. That's one unstoppable person right there. You're not the sort to let any set backs or plateaus or ANYTHING get in your way when you are protecting someone you love, and you have decided to protect and love YOURSELF!
