You know, I tell my kids this every day. Sure, your teacher gave you three pages of homework assignments. You can choose to sit and complain and whine your way through the work and in the process make everyone around you miserable, or you can choose to get it overwith and rejoice in your accomplishments - be proud of yourself. Life is all about choices. You can change your attitude, and it will change your life. It is your choice in which direction that choice will take you! Repeat after me... I AM IN CONTROL!
LOL!!

My attitude, my choices.

Thank you for reminding me that I AM in control.

Thanks for the encouragement. We are in control of our own mood. Too bad I often let circumstances take control of mine. I will try harder!

So very true! Thank you! I need reminded of that frequently. Today is my weigh in day, and I maintaned. I didn't lose and it's the first time since starting with SP. I could easily have gotten depressed and gone on a binge. But that is the former behavior. Today I still have a smile, and am looking at this as a chance to re-assess! It's all about what you chose to do with the cards you are dealt!

You are SO right LUV!

This is one of my favorite quotes, one that I have taped to desk at work:

Every day you have the choice to either enjoy
your life or to hate it. The only thing that is truly
yours – that no-one can control or take from you – is your attitude.
So if you can take care of that,
everything else in life becomes much easier.

I know there are days I don't feel like doing anything but vegging out on the sofa. Usually, if I get myself started with the workouts, then I am fine.
I always feel better about myself if I do the workouts. A lot of the time the weather seems to make me feel less like doing things, especially on cloudy, rainy days.

Dear Lord
Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway.

Good advice on the attitude. Generally I am a positive type person, but every once in a while I start to feel sorry for myself. Usually this does not last longer than a day. I just don't want to be negative. But sometimes it just happens. And I think that is a place where Spark People helps, we all have people out there to encourage us, give us new ideas. That helps us all stay positive during our challenges and to keep on keeping on whether we are the giver or receiver! emoticon

On the choices you made! I know that I get so focused on changing my workout habit, the eating healthy habit, etc. that I forget about the "changing the attitude" habit!!

You're absolutely right! It IS up to us to to decide what can or will influence our daily outlook.

A great day is only a positive thought (or in this case a swim) away!

Sure, the way I feel is always affected by more things than I can even count, but I had a moment today where I remembered none of them are as much of an influence as ME.

I was very blah this morning. I wanted BAD BAD delicious food for dinner last night, but I was strong, and I was proud of myself, but I wasn't happy.

So I had a little talk with myself. I DECIDED that doing my swim work out today was going to be what changed things. I was going to get out in the sun, so something I like, burn a bunch of calories, and be in a good mood.

Nothing changed about my day, but just telling myself that the swim would fix it worked.

Easiest way out of what could easily have become a slump EVER.

For the rest of the day I've been reminding myself. Someone comes into my office that I dont want to deal with, plans change for my weekend. I will not be bummed out again. I was in the sunchine today. I got in a good work out. It was really fun and I wont let these things take that away from me.

I hope this helps any of you who have been in a slump lately; I know from the general discussion that that's a lot of us.

YOU ARE in control, even when it doesn't feel like it. So take responsibility, and figure out what you need to do for you.

If there were no rain, there could be no rainbows!

I'd like to be thin... but I like food better!
