I, cheryl, hereby agree and commit to take the following steps to improve my accountability to myself and increase my chances for weight loss success:
I will not let one small slip-up convince me that I'm stupid, worthless, or a lost cause. I will respect myself by refusing to engage in verbal self-abuse, and I will find positive ways to comfort and support myself when I’m having a hard time. I will…
1. reflect on the goals that I have met and situations that I have overcome
2. find support
3. repeat positive affirmations
4. journal thoughts.
5. tell myself that I am worthy every day.
I will not sacrifice my own needs to make other people happy, or do for them what they can and should be doing for themselves. When there is a conflict between my exercise and eating plans and what other people want me to do, I will negotiate to find a reasonable solution that allows me to do what I need to do for myself.
I choose to be in charge of my own decisions and behavior. I will not talk, think, or act as if my partner, child, spouse, cravings, or subconscious made me do it. I will ask myself what’s most important to me at that moment and make my decision. If I don’t like the consequences, I will try something different the next time. I will take better care of this body of mine.
