the words you use are really important and affect your thoughts and actions. Express what you do want not what you don't want Say " I want to be slim and healthy" instead of saying "I don't want to be fat any more." Say "I intend to eat healthy foods" not " I'm not going to eat cookies any more." Make sure all your self-talk is framed in a positive way. This simple trick has a huge impact on your ultimate success.

A simple sentence with powerful words really do push you through that last quarter of your workout. Construct a sentence that really speaks to you. Make sure to leave out any words that might leave you with doubt. Instead of "I think I am strong" say "I am strong." Repeat it in your head. Sounds crazy, but so far it is really helping me stay positive about where I am and what I need to do to reach my goals.
