  • Great article! I tend to over-blow simple things up, and use precious energy beating myself up, knowing it's not the end of the world, nor am I going to put on10 lbs over a cookie. This process will be especially useful at work with so much blame game. I'm quick to take blame and beat myself up about "another" mistake. Instead I should stop and analyze what the problem is, and if it even has anything to do with me. If it's not, then reject it. If it's my problem, then I need to determine whether I just didn't do it right, or whether this is a result of indecisive management. Often times, the situation is a learning opportunity. - 2/7/2015 10:39:16 AM

  • Really needed this article today. Yesterday was my husbands birthday and we splurged, going out for pizza with my husbands brother and wife, have Chinese for dinner. Have a piece of cake and some candy as it was his birthday. But knowing this morning we needed to get back on track! Thank You! - 10/18/2014 10:14:52 AM

    This article was very helpful, and it can be useful on many levels. Although I've maintained a healthy weight for five years, I still make mistakes and hate the feelings they create. The advice about examining those intermediate and automatic thoughts is another step I can take to attain the healthy mind and body I seek. - 2/18/2014 8:15:02 AM

    I've found that wearing a rubber band on my wrist helps with banishing negative thoughts and exchanging them for a more positive thought. Whenever I feel a negative thought come into my head or a negative feeling, I pop the rubber band on my wrist as a way to "wake myself up" , become aware of my thoughts and substitute it for a better one. You'd be surprised how many times a day you'll find yourself popping that rubber band! It's called Aversion Therapy. (I think) Give it a try! - 1/5/2014 10:01:21 AM

    Very informative and empowering. I think this advice could change my life for the better. I've been struggling with negative automatic thoughts almost my entire life. Thank you for this article and congratulations on your achievements! You reinforced one of my favorite quotes: "It's never too late to be what you might have been"! A million thanks! - 1/5/2014 9:57:16 AM

  • After learning that I am a codependent, I begin each day with my affirmations. Right now, those affirmations come in the form of the Spark Coach program on Spark People. I found your article this morning. This was the perfect affirmation for me. I hurt my foot and cannot exercise as much as I like right now. I get so down on myself because of those negative thoughts coming to the forefront each morning. Thanks for reminding me about the tools to confront those thoughts! - 10/19/2013 8:16:49 AM

  • "Do what doesn't come naturally," and, "if you're feeling uncomfortable, you're probably doing something right," are the two thoughts that I'm got from this article. Sometimes I am uncomfortable with all the changes. - 9/2/2013 11:09:08 AM

    My mom always said, "Can't never did anything," so it was ingrained in me to at least give it my best before saying I can't. - 6/18/2013 2:38:36 PM
