I feel like I'm running out of positive attributes!!

I've always been told I'm a great mom. I'm strict, but fair, and always do everything in a loving way. I'm the first one down on the floor to play Legos or Transformers with my step-sons, and the one my step-daughter comes to for boy advice. My daughter, at 15, is amazing. None of the teenage attitude of "I know more than you". We have a wonderful relationship, and I hope it continues.

Having trouble thinking of a positive attribute today...

I really like my eyes. They're blue, but they're not... there's other colors in there. And my right eye is 1/4 brown. Weird attribute to mention, I guess.. but I couldn't think of anything else!

Today's attribute is a positive change/improvement, a few rather, with cooking.

I've come to enjoy cooking fresh healthy natural meals, for us, and I'm actually enjoying my soups, meals, crock pot creations, grilling,and even smoked meat, over eating out. I'm amazed how naturally tasty fresh whole foods are, without all of the additives, processing, sodium and sauces.

As I progress in this area, I've learned the true joys of batch cooking, and love to have a variety on hand. It truly does save quite a bit of time in the long run, and we can always un-thaw something healthy and wholesome quickly, if I haven't planned well. This has greatly reduced impromtu take out meals, which we rarely partake in anymore.

I've come a very long way in this area, and one of the best benefits is that my DH enjoys it too!

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Today's positive attribute;

I love that I have a compassionate heart. I enjoy giving, sharing, and showing others kind acts of mercy. I want to be a blessing to others, and shine the light of Christ.

I enjoy compliments that I've received in this area, as it is an affirmation to me that I'm not a selfish person. That means alot to me. Sometimes along this journey it can be "all about me", and I don't ever want to lose sight of what's truly important in life.

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Minnie - to be honest, I've been using a lot of sparkpeople recipes lately. I do have a few yummy creations I could share. I'll have to do that when I have time.

Today's positive attribute is my positivity! I'm generally an optimistic person who tries to find the good in everything and everybody. My glass is half full. :)

I am so much better at accepting who I see in the mirror. It is one strong chick:) Someone who can lift a lot of weight, squat even more weight, flip tires, attempt to climb ropes, and run like someone is chasing me...all just for fun:)

I love the muscles that stare back at me. I don't obsesses any more about much of anything. The number on the scale means nothing to me compared to the reps I am able to pound out at the gym:) Those numbers matter the most to me now.

This morning when I dressed for work, I looked in the mirror and wasn't absolutely sure about the outfit I had put together. Then it dawned on me that it might not have been someone else's style but it worked for me and that was enough. I was proud to be the woman who didn't have to be or do just like everyone else.

I don't think I posted yesterday... or did I? Ah well.

Today, my positive attribute is my "peacefulness." I approach most stressful situations calmly and clear-headed, and help others to be calm too. I was actually complimented on this today!

This is a good challenge for me. My weight has been going in the wrong direction. This morning I am back at 170. This is the most I've weighed this year. My positive attribute is the fact that I am not going to give up. Iam not a quitter!

what i like is that the lady in the mirror does smile back at me when i look at her. i've been told repeatedly that people value my smile. see image at left please.

i think i'll do a week's worth now:
i like that i zip my lip in both directions. people trust me with confidences because i don't gossip.

i like that i don't weigh more in spite of my challenges. (at the same time i'd like to weigh less.)

i like that i care about others.

i'm proud of my professional accomplishments.

i like that people like me and seek my company (even though i don't have time for them). i also like to be around people who like themselves.

I do like who smiles back in my mirror, inside and out. I'm proud of the changes in my body, mind, spirit, and the entire transformation over the past two years. I'm amazed each time I compare pictures, which is what keeps me motivated and positive.

My two favorite attributes today are my strength and spirituality. I am balanced and at peace.

One of my biggest struggles used to be comparing myself to others. I felt inadequate that I wasn't losing and changing as fast as my Sparkfriends, I wasn't at the fitness level as others, nor logging mega fitness minutes. But I came to realize those were not MY goals, they belonged to others. I knew I could change faster if I dedicated more time to exercise, but I craved balance more than anything. We all have different goals that can't compare to others. We have our own unique journey and dreams to fulfill. Maintaining balance, spiritually, physically, mentally, and emotionally, is how I continue to show myself love.

I do like the person that smiles back at me - or makes faces at me or laughes with me! Weird, huh? However I really do enjoy my sense of humor and like to have fun with it. I do appreciate what I see since having lost 45 pounds. However, I have been at this point for a while and am starting to see myself as being as heavy as I was when I began this process. That's where I need to work!

Years ago, I would have said I don't like the person in the mirror. I've grown a lot in the past 15 years, and have come to the point where I do truly love myself and value myself. I know I'm worthwhile, valuable, and loved. I take pride in my love for others, how caring I am, how good I am at my job, and how good a mother and wife I am. I'm not sure how I maintain a positive self-image. I just... do. I'm awesome and I know it!! My outer appearance matters little to my self-image, but I am VERY excited to be healthy and look good!

I LOVE who smiles back in my mirror! I have never been one to focus in my image in a mirror, but now that I am healthier and much more confident in who I am... It's easy to smile in my mirror.

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but one of love, power and self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7

2. Everything has changed!! I'm still a work in progress but much happier with what I see in the mirror. The thing I'm happiest about tho, and has impacted my life the most is my fitness. My NSV right now is going to group exercise classes - so far I have exercised at home or been walking or swimming but getting back to group classes has always been on my goal list - and now I'm doing it - what's more I can keep up with everyone else!

I have become less critical of myself.

Body Image – “Do you like who smiles back in your mirror?”

No matter where we are on our journey, we all have times when we’re not always pleased with ourselves and our physical attributes. We’re not changing fast enough, we compare ourselves to others, and sometimes we just don’t think we look good enough, no matter what size and shape we are, even once we’ve met our goals.

Our challenge this week is to share our thoughts on how we perceive ourselves, share our positive attributes, and not compare ourselves to others.

1. How do you perceive yourself? What do you take pride in? Would you like to share your strategies on how you maintain a positive self-image? Let’s try to think beyond our appearance and physical attributes, to our individual uniqueness. If you need a little help in this area, ask friends and family what they enjoy about you, or share compliments you’ve received from others, and what they meant to you.

2. Each day let’s post a positive attribute, or more if you wish. If you are struggling in this area, then focus on identifying areas that have changed, where you notice progress, just not quite to your satisfaction yet. Describe those changes, your progress so far, and what your goals are for continued progress. If you know a struggling teammate, reach out and encourage them with positive affirmation.

3. Stop comparing yourselves to others. We were all created uniquely, with different abilities, passions, goals, desires, timelines, challenges, lifestyles, body shapes, etc. There is only one you! Love and celebrate you for who you are! In what ways do you show yourself love? In what ways could you improve showing yourself love?
