  • That would be "will" :) - 1/14/2017 8:59:58 AM
  • Great pep talk! Bill bookmark. Awesome! - 1/14/2017 8:59:33 AM
  • This article could be written directly for me. I am a master of negative self talk. Will have to try harder to remain positive so I can be successful. Even one small thing a day could change the outcome of my day. - 1/11/2017 7:24:00 AM
  • Your goal is unattainable. Your actions are pointless. This is the negative self-talk that leads to my self-sabotage. To see my thoughts in print. To see that others have these same thoughts. This was a real eye-opener for me. - 1/8/2017 4:18:23 PM
  • Cardio machines with a view - beats reading every time. That's true even if it is a street view - create a story - - 12/15/2016 9:54:12 AM
  • My biggest motivation killer was the 'gym snobs' (and way too many of them are professional trainers). Either in person, or online. I avoid them and have a much better outlook. But keeping a positive outlook does not mean to overlook my faults. Merely accept the reality, and try to improve on them. - 11/29/2016 2:45:11 AM
  • I'm thinking they were a bit down because they were tired after their workout. Being realistic doesn't have to mean you're thinking negatively. Some people post photos of themselves when they were younger and fitter; they will never look that young again, but they can look that fit, so it works. It's all in how you view the world. - 7/22/2016 1:38:18 PM
  • i liked the own best friend comment. I will remember that one - 7/12/2016 11:44:13 AM
  • Hesitant to comment here, as a dissenting viewpoint on this particular subject seem to get deleted. Treading carefully:
    Believing that something is true doesn't make that thing true; it makes you delusional. Speaking for myself, and I cannot stress enough that I am applying this standard to myself only because doing otherwise produces FAILURE in my case: failing to face facts, that is the cold, hard truth about health and weight, makes me fatter. The "body positivity"/'self love" approach led me straight to the plus-size department.
    Assuming a rigid stance, with no room for excuses, is the only thing that makes that scale move in the right direction for me. - 7/12/2016 10:45:48 AM
  • Its so easy to compare myself to another in a magazine, the gym, the mall, etc., and think to myself that I will never look that good. Instead I try to focus on making myself the best person I can be because I am never going to be them. - 4/27/2016 7:36:01 AM
  • The biggest motivation killer I find at the gym are the TVs set on News Channels at high volume - doom and gloom and fear and hatred - talking heads yelling at one another. - 3/11/2016 6:08:35 AM
  • So true! Negative thinking becomes self-fulfilling prophesy! I choose joy - imperfections are a part of life! - 1/18/2016 8:51:37 AM
  • I try to celebrate the success of others. If they can do it, then I can too. Since they are committed, they deserve the positive results. - 1/17/2016 8:19:30 AM
  • "I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime."

    I don't remember where I heard this, maybe another SP article, but I really like it! It reminds me to take things one day, one choice at a time. - 1/14/2016 6:04:11 PM
