When you hit a plateau in your weight loss journey, kick away any stinking thinking (I can't, or I won't). Get on SPARK and find out how others got through it. Tell yourself, "I can do this" . All you need is desire and right attitude. Yes, you can do it!!!
It took me 3 /4 years to finally loose weight. I found two people who lost a lot of weight and started reading their blog as well as made them a Spark friend. It helped me change my thinking and my attitude!
Replace your diet soda with a flavored liquid stevia in your water. It comes in many flavors and has no calories. Stevia is safe; plus it does not cause food carvings or feed your body toxins like the sweeteners in diet soda. Try stevia, I know you will like it , as well as save money!!
I you struggle with taking weight off; get a picture of how you would like to look. Then put that picture somewhere so you can be seen. Each week give yourself a goal of 1-2 lbs. and look at that picture. Then tell yourself that you will look like this. You will get to your goal one day at a time; one pound at a time!!
Instead of picking yourself apart, love the way you look. Write down something you like about the way you look everyday. And develop a style that is YOU. Ex. wearing hats, or blazer jackets, or scrafs. Love the way you look through focusing your thoughts on positive things about how you look. Plus, create your own style that makes you feel special and good about YOU. Loving the way you look everyday will help you enrich your life and be healthier.
Write your daily successes in a journal. It will help keep you motived and aware of all you are capable of doing. On those blah days, you can read it over and get moving faster. IT'S AN AWESOME LIST OF YES I CAN AFFIRMATIONS! They are your successes and victories!!
