I enjoyed my walk by the river, and meeting new friends.

Do not think about how far there is still to go, concentrate on where you have come from.

Today is going to be a great day. I started out with Pilates and about to have a late breakfast. I also have stood in front of the mirror and told myself that I can do it and I saw the skinny lady inside. I am focused and ready to go! emoticon emoticon

Each day can be an awesome day as we decide what we want to do and think. There is always something to be grateful for.
I too am going to have a wonderful day. I grandson is coming over today and this weekend my two grandchildren from Ireland are coming for a month to visit.

Happiness is remembering what I really want.
Laughter is the best medicine. The best things in life are free.

Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.

Dream with no action = wishful thinking
Action with no plan = chaos
Dream + action + persistence = success

The ego tells me you can't do it. The spirit tells me I can.

Each time I say "no" to impulse eating, I will visualize fat melting off my body.

Today is a wonderful day because after such a hard, emotional week, my daughter is getting stronger, I'm back to work, and I'm back with my ICMYT Spark Team! I have missed all of you! Also, I finally finished ICMYT! (I have re-read the first 100 pages or so about 15 times.)

How exciting - a screenplay - gosh!

Today, me and Katherine (youngest daughter - 18) are doing bootcamp, walking to town and shorting a whole load of stuff out (bank, phone shop, etc). So we are totally awesome because we are sorted and organised and going to totally rock the day!

Oh Lois, I loved your 'diva' moment there! :)

Maeven, yay for you! Growth is sooo uncomfortable sometimes, but it feels terrific in the long run. :)

As for me, today is wonderful because I'm making a conscious effort to use my time wisely, investing in my passions and walking away from 'time wasters' as much as I can.

Mothering Sunday here in the UK - so chocolates, cards and a lovely meal out - because I am a mom.

I am a wonderful person because I have brought up such lovely children who love me as much as I love them.

6.15 bootcamp (physio exercises but, hey, it's bootcamp for me!)
Sexy breakfast, wonderful lunch and making a great dinner - yep I ate what I wanted.
Work was stressy, to say the least, but I made the most of the day.

Therefore, I am amazing.

Tomorrow I am looking forward to... eating what I want! YAY!

I've been sick all weekend.
I missed work through illness even though deadlines are tight
I pulled my back
I'm poorly and now I am in pain

BUT

I am totally awesome because despite these setbacks I can count my blessings and see the positive.

I will recover, I will catch up at work, my back will heal - I'll be okay in a week or two. I am fortunate, others are not so lucky.

Today I am awesome because I made a lovely packed lunch for my boyf who has booked the day off work to go metal detecting. So, even though I didn't have to make him anything and I am well jealous of him not at work on such a lovely (Spring-like) day, I was kind and thoughtful.

Tomorrow I am looking forward to chilling out, sleeping, resting, getting lots of fresh air and generally doing as I please all day.

Today is awesome because it is JAM PACKED with activity, which originally was stressing me out. But I'm breathing, and visualizing myself at the end of the day feeling accomplished and joyful. I can FEEL how the day is going to magically flow!

Also, coffee with cream helps. *smirk*

Finding today a struggle... but I am awesome.

I am awesome because... I love and I am loved.

Hot pink shoes - love them. I used to have some shiny red shoes that I wore for work - everyone commented on them, Wizard of Oz references, but everyone smiled and they made me smile too. I need some snazzy coloured shoes for work for sure.

From a 'Wisdom Card' by Louis Hay that I have up on my bulletin board this morning:

"I do not use yesterday's mental garbage to create tomorrow's experiences. I create fresh new thoughts and a fresh new life."

Yesterday was a little tough. I reframed my thoughts last night, had loving time with my husband, listened to my hypnosis and slept really well. Today I started the day early with journaling and a yummy bowl of cereal (one of my fav foods!). I'm wearing fun hot pink shoes that make me smile. I'm taking action to restructure my days so I have more time to be creative. It's a good day!

I bet the snow was a blast Shell! How fun!

Today will be awesome because I am spending the day with my family. We are going shopping, then to the movies and then home for a yummy dinner. Tonight we are going to a high school soccer (football) game.

I'm also committed to following the golden rules. Especially #4, stopping when I'm full.

MAEVEN1 and SHELLSHINEPATH you are doing great recognising your body's signals. Way to go.

Yeah, my day wasn't quite as intended but it was alovely, relaxing day - Cathedrals are generally kinda chilled out places! I go for the history and atmosphere - bought myself a weird bracelet - it made me smile and was very inexpensive.

Anyhoo!

Today I am awesome because I am going to blast out some jive and boogie about the house doing housework. The boyf is out metal detecting, the teenage daughter is slugging in her room - so I'm going to blow out the cobwebs (metaphorically and in reality - *blush* I don't do much housework... shhhhh!)

Make the day great! You rock!

Yay Lois for your fun day! (even though I know it didn't *quite* work out as you'd intended)

Yay Maeven for tuning into yourself!

My positive for today is really listening to my hunger signals and EATING! I don't eat nearly enough and I get myself to the 'sick hungry' state much too often. NO MORE! If I'm hungry I'm eating. I just had a nummy tuna salad sandwich and am now munching almonds and blueberries. YUM!

Shine on!

Hi Group! I'm awesome today because I recognized a situation that would normally have had me searching for food to feel better. Instead I removed myself from the situation, drank hot water (its very soothing) and did some deep breathing. emoticon

You guys rock - thank you!

So today I am totally awesome because I am off to Hereford, going to check out the cathedral and the mappa mundi (I hope).

The Hereford Mappa Mundi is unique in Britain's heritage; an outstanding treasure of the medieval world, it records how thirteenth-century scholars interpreted the world in spiritual as well as geographical terms.

It's a wonderful drive into the beautiful Herefordshire countryside (I live in Worcestershire - the shires are all stunning - as JRR Tolkien points out in his Hobbit novels, which I haven't actually read... not my thing... but nice that he based the Shires on the Shires anyway).

It's going to be a super day - the last weekday of my holiday - back to work next week. I cannot complain! Term time working rocks!

How awesome are you today!

Lots of positives today!

I have my hubby's Kindle loaded up with "Health At Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight" by Dr. Linda Bacon and am loving the introduction already! Thank you Diva for sharing about this book yesterday. :)

I'm deeply enjoying my coffee on this blustery SoCal day, mmmm...cozy....

I listened to my McKenna hypo-awsomeness last night and woke up feeling oh-so-good.

I have a team of ladies that are helping me stay focused and joyful about this new path!

Zoritsa - I'll start a new topic about the Oxycise breathing, and similar ideas. :)

Today I rock because I'm up and smiling! I ate breakfast with intention (and realized I don't care for Cheerios, they feel all soggy when I eat them slowly and pay attention, lol!!!). I'm connecting with gorgeous souls here on the team and loving that. I'm about to go do my Oxycise breathing workout and I know how awesome that feels.

Wonderful Wednesday!

Lois you rock for staying so positive and helping to coach everyone along!
Today is a month in for me. I'm am not down as much in weight as I would like, but I've been doing the "just dance" challenge all week, and I think my belt may just be the tiniest bit looser. I'm going to put that in the win column and look forward to doing even better next month.

I too am going to "recommit" even if I have to do it everyday just to keep myself on track. My family deserves the healthiest me possible and so do I.

HA!!!! Consistency finally paid off!!!!

I lost 2kilos in the past 3 weeks!!!!! Having weighed myself after week 2 - still weighing the same, I was so put off and dissappointed... But I kept on going and VOILA!! 2 kilos (4lbs) just dissappeared!!

I also might think that periods and time of the months have a lot to do with weight. I know when Im PMSing, my body holds in a lot of water and I always feel bloated (and fat). So girls especially - try waiting after your period to weigh in! (Maybe it doesnt work for everybody, but it worked for me!!)

Tomorrow I am looking forward to a mega walk in the countryside - dressing for the weather - and yomping about the fields with my boyfriend.

This is a great thread - our thoughts are *so* important to shaping our lives!

Yesterday was hard - my mother-in-law passed away after a long struggle with ALS. But the positive was all the love and comfort my family received from so many friends and family - and all the memories people shared of knowing my MIL.

Today I am looking forward to doing some light cardio - I hurt my neck over the weekend and have not exercised in 4 days (which is a loooong time for me!), but it's feeling better and I think I can do a little Leslie Sansone walkin'!

I have to admit that I'm pulling for the Harvard grad, too..What is his name? I think it starts with a C, but it's funny we both can't remember. I always pull for the underdog! I would love it if he came back and won. I love coach, though. As for Ozzie, I would kinda like to see him have to eat crow..all the talk about "come here, I'll feed you, then win against you and send you home"..He's a little too cocky for me. lol He definitely keeps it interesting, though!

I agree that eating mindfully enhances the experience.. :-)

edited to say: Cochran (sp?)..that's his name..it came to me as soon as I posted this message.

Hi Liz. That's wonderful that you are not obsessing over food. It really takes the joy out of eating. I'm a foodie and look forward to enjoying what I choose to eat. Eating mindfully enhances the eating experience for me. Lol.

I, however, continue to use the SP tracker to track what I eat. I never had a problem with it, and for me I like the information it provides.

This season Survivor started out dull. I'm hoping Ozie stays in the game, lol, although I think he plays terrible strategically. Coach on the other hand is playing surprising well. And, lol, I can't help root for the young Harvard nerd. Forgot his name.

Hi ladies. I loved reading your posts.

Today I met my BIL for brunch. I needed to express some painful feelings. And I did. I came from a place of love and non judgement. I was able to express how I felt without putting him on the defensive. I also reminded myself that it's my responsibility to myself to set boundaries when I need to. Somehow I stopped and it came back to bite me. Lol, no more.

Tomorrow I look forward to spending the day with friends.

It sounds like you do have a lovely day planned Lois.

My plans for today are to enjoy a semi-lazy day. Sundays are my "day off" from exercise, but if I feel I need a boost, I may do a mile with Leslie Sansone. I plan to get a few things done, such as sorting recipes (I'm getting back into cooking more now that I'm doing things the Paul McKenna way and can enjoy the things we love most!), clipping coupons and perhaps making a recipe box for a friend for Christmas (plastic canvas and yarn).

This morning I made some "motivational signs" to hang on the large mirror in the dining room, reminding myself to wait until hungry, savor each bite, if in doubt, drink at tall glass of water then see how I feel, stop when full or food starts to taste a little bland, picture myself as thin, etc... I attached them to the mirror. They're a sight, but colorful and will be very helpful when I sit down to eat!

I love not tracking too.

I have a lovely lazy Sunday.... nothing is planned for the day.... just going to see where it takes me. I want to have time to use all my senses and really enjoy the day, feel the gratitude of being alive and basically have a nice day.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Lois, emoticon also on your weight loss! You ladies are doing great! I did have a good time and also walked with Leslie Sansone. I love this freedom of not having to track and count calories. It's given me time to think of other things and I feel more like "doing" rather than thinking about it all the time! lol I'm feeling and being much more active, it seems! So that's a positive thing for today, I guess! :)

YAY MAZZY! Congratulations. HAPPYLOSER46 hope you had a great time in the yard!

Today - I had my lie in, I am going to have a cuppa tea with my daughter and later my boyfriend is taking me out to dinner - but the biggest positive thing so far is the weight loss - down to 163lbs. And NO worries about eating out two nights in a row!

Tomorrow... I am looking forward to relaxing all day.
