One of the most helpful techniques is offering yourself a dual..a challenge...friendly competition!!! When you're feeling like you're in an exercise rut, play mind games with yourself. There was plenty of times that my old chunky self told my new almost fit self, "I bet you can't, I bet you won't, You can't do that, You don't have the stamina, You don't have the energy NOR the flexibility!!!" The reply was/IS always, "I CAN SHOW YOU BETTER THAN I CAN TELL YOU!"216
My friends don't believe how much I weigh when I tell them the actual number. That in itself left me uninspired. I always believed I would never have a weight problem. I found out that as you get older, if you don't change your life style to go along with your age, you will be quite surprised. When I got to menopause age it took a total turn and I was not prepared for it.
Twenty plus years ago when I was diagnosed with hypertension I quit smoking and never looked back. I know I can do this. I am motivated and I am not on a DIET! I am on track to REDESIGN myself mentally and physically. 335 I am whistling a different tune.
I have learned to stop believing the lies I was telling myself when I slip, that "I'll always fail", "Here we go again", "You will always be fat", "You are too old"..on and on..all lies...counter the lies with the truth..you can do it all when you believe in yourself!
