Catherine, I should warn you that I was our church's nursery director for about five years, so with that in mind, hear me as I shout over your life in Bob the Builder's voice: YES, YOU CAN!!!

Right when I feel my lowest, God seems to tap me on the shoulder, through a phone call and maybe, a ride to the store in a blizzard. I could sit and sulk because my life is hard but I am not going to do that. I will remember that today is a new day and a new start. I can quit smoking. I can eat better things. I can learn to exercise. I can love myself.

Awesome post, Shelly! I WON'T quit, ever. I won't give in and I won't give up, in Jesus' name.

Thank you Shelly for the positive message. I try to be positive and optimistic, but I sometimes find myself being negative. This was just the kick in the pants I needed to turn my thoughts back around. You are truly motivating and inspiring. Thank you!

Excellent pep-talk, Shelly. I actually do need it today so it came at a right time. Not that the holidays were so bad...my "maintenance" has been a problem from day one! I thank you for the prayer!

Has the recent holidays left you feeling defeated? Have you let yourself down and feel you can't start over again?

My friends let me tell you something; if you feel this way, eating too much of anything, not exercising, or staying on track, IS NOT your problem right now!!! The inability of not picking yourself up again is what the problem is, which will cause you not gain weight/gain more weight.

We all fail at things. Even the best of best have set backs in their lives. But, our failures do not have to ruin us! The amount of time that you allow yourself to dwell on your failure is the measure of negatively you will experience in the future. Think about it...... The amount of time that you allow yourself to dwell on your failure is the measure of negativity you will experience in the future. It makes so much sense. For example, I just came back from PA yesterday. My goal was to not eat any sweets while I was there. I was at my mom's house for 3.5 days. I did eat sweets. I had a cookie, and 14 pieces of candy. Now I did not meet my foal did I? I could be writing a blog on my spark page about what I failure I am. Instead I just got off my stationary bike a few minutes ago, and I am feeling pretty good about myself. (I don't mean to brag, I am just making a point)

Instead of thinking about what you HAVE NOT done, start doing what needs to be done! You see once you start doing a positive action, or thinking in a positive manner, positive results are soon the outcome.

So, turn those thoughts upside down, start right now telling yourself good things. Say to yourself,"I made some mistakes, but today is a new day. I will exercise, get back to my desired calorie range, (stay at my goal that I set for myself, as far as how many calories to eat) and I am not going to let my set back set ME BACK!!! You can do it! You got what it takes! I believe in you!

Dear Jesus please be with us all. Help everyone who needs your help right now to turn their set back into a positive instead of a negative! help them to start exercising, eating better, and staying on the right path. Magnify your power within them, and lead the way. In Jesus name I pray amen.
