When you're first getting started, listen to the messages your give yourself. Instead of "shoulding" or "needing" or "having" yourself to lose weight or get healthy, reclaim your power and make a choice. Choose to take care of yourself. Choose to be healthy. Choose be happy. Choose to lose weight.
"Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."
That quote is from Abraham Lincoln, and when I start sweating the small stuff, I run that sentence through my head and choose to focus on something that makes me happy. Happiness is something you have to choose for yourself, no one else can make it for you. So make up your mind to be happy. It feels a lot better than the decision to be miserable. 334
