focus on the positive things you have done and let the rest go. it might take you years to reach your goal but if you don't try you never will
Celebrate ALL victories no matter how small they are! Even the smallest victories are steps in the right direction. A step in the right direction still leads you further down the path in this journey! By focusing on those small steps you build self confidence and motivation!
If you focus on what you are doing right instead of what you are doing wrong you motivate and inspire others. If at the end of the day you have binged but wrote it down , THAT is a victory! Ask yourself, "would I have done that a year ago?" One step at a time! Celebrate! 306
The scale isn't the only tool I use to measure my success! I celebrate all victories! Some of the victories I've celebrated have been staying consistent with my food diary, taking my daily vitamins, making sure I drink at least 64oz of water per day. Positive thinking and consistency is the key!30
Self pampering and little rewards helps make the journey more fun.30
