For motivation, I think when we gain weight, it's like wearing a dress that's too large for a while. We may not like the look of it and we'd rather not wear it, but we can change the color and pattern. Then with perseverance and work, the dress gets smaller, inch by inch.
The website www.mybodygallery.com helps me form realistic goals and see that my shape is great even with all of the different variations that people come with. Beautiful women come in all shapes and sizes, and this site reminds me of that!
Be happy as you are. It was only after I stopped thinking about this journey as a path to eventual happiness that I was able to really commit. I am happy as I am. I'm not losing weight because I dream of being the perfect sized me that can one day shop in Forever 21. No, I'm happy as I am. And it is now, when I've probably had the highest self -esteem ever that I can really commit to this. This is for my health, I won't become discouraged with the scale b/c it's a lifestlye change.

Having a positive attitude causes you to have a better outlook on life and on your quest to be healthier. By posting positive notes around the house, you are continuing to surround yourself with positivity. I post my notes around my bedroom and on my bathroom mirror each day of something happy. These are two places that I go to for refuge when I may be having a rough day. Reading the notes helps me to take a look and see what I should be thankful for and to begin back on the right track.
