I do agree with that diet tip.

I was so motivated up until Christmas and cannot get back to that same level of motivation. The desire is still there but the determination has waned.

So I am now counting on persistence!

Inside I'm a thin person struggling to get out, but I can usually be sedated with chocolate.

Weight Loss is 90% Mental
By Jennifer Gruenemay, ACE-Certified, LifeScript Staff Writer
Thursday, January 4, 2007

While a personal trainer is definitely one of the best coaches you can have in your weight loss journey, a positive attitude is also an excellent coach to have in your corner and it won’t cost you anything extra. While the science behind weight loss breaks it down to a “calories in vs. calories out” equation, the reality is that weight loss is largely a battle of the mind. The battle is lost when you end up talking yourself out of exercising, talking yourself into ordering that cheeseburger and listening to negative self-talk every time you look in the mirror and pick apart your image. If you want to get serious about weight loss, don’t just pay attention to how much you eat and how often you exercise – also make a mental checklist of how often you put yourself down even as you’re trying to build yourself up. Once you get an idea of how damaging your attitude really is to your goals, start putting positive thoughts and encouraging images into your mind. Stomp out negative thoughts and keep a positive attitude even when things aren’t looking so great. So you missed a workout and had cheesecake for breakfast – so what? Don’t beat yourself up about it, but rather tell yourself you’re human and you’re allowed to make mistakes now and then, but you’ll do better next time. Visualize yourself at your goal's end and you’ll find yourself there sooner than you know.

I''m confused, wait....maybe I''m not.

Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
