I didn’t realize how negatively my weight had affected my self-esteem and self-image. I stepped on the scales this morning and saw that I had lost 3 pounds and didn’t believe it! I was so happy for about 5 minutes-then I began to COMPARE! “Others in my 5% summer weight loss have lost more than me and besides, I have only lost 16 pounds in ten months-that’s pathetic!” I said to myself. Then I heard myself and thought , “Is that me I hear saying that negative stuff?!”
I have been reading TEXASHSMOMOF3 posts and she just pushes past all the negativity in her life to find the positives. I can do that too! I have been eating pretty good meals and getting more veggies in. I have been exercising every day. And with God on my side, I WILL be below 300 by January 1st!!

    You are doing fine !!! Everyone looses at their own pace. I am in your group and you have me beat in this challenge. It's not a race to see who looses the most. It is to keep on sparking to better health.

    Good job on Realizing there was negative dialog going on And tuning out! Negative begets more negative Add never cannot produce a positive result because it is negative! No need to compare because you are doing great! Keep up your good work!! ... 😊 ...👍 ...
