Ive discovered and adopted a new saying over the last couple of days; and , perhaps due to its current novelty, it is helping me make better decision - "Never give up what you want MOST for what you want at the MOMENT". As a result I've bypassed potato salad, a second helping, chocolates, high cholesterol food, luncheon meat (high sulfates), and a few other items that, perhaps, I was a bit lazy about thinking about before I ate them. So this mantra is supporting my goal this week!
Regina - find something that works for you no matter what....internalize it! It cant be anything external - forget the No and focus on the "yes' to something, anything!~ Sounds like you are hard on yourself swearing when you make a mistake...I used to do that; now I'm just human and can no longer compare myself to anyone or thing anymore. The world will keep on turning and the moment is passed; no point agonizing after something done in the past. Good Luck! You know you have people on your side!! Whew! 2180 days ago
That's a great mantra! I found one on someone else's blog awhile back that I've kept near and dear to my heart: "it won't taste as good as I want to look." and you know what? It never does! 2180 days ago
