I am so terrible for eating________ I will never make it I might as well quit now!

It is OK you are making progress and right choices!

My body is a temple and I am treating it as such...

Thanks for sharing the calendar info - I had no idea that there was a calendar! I've printed it out and posted it.

Negative thought:
I'll never reach my weight goal.

Positive Self-Talking:I will reach my goal using small, baby steps. I had to learn to crawl before I could walk.

Negative thought:
I can't say no to food.

Positive Self-Talking: I don't have to say no to food I just have to eat smaller portions and healthy portions.

This ties in very well with what the SparkPeople calendar says for today...

Forgive and forget. Refusing to forgive fosters anger and resentment, which makes your own life miserable. Let go and put your energy into something positive so that you can be happier.

I really like this: 'Also, I remind myself that CAN'T is an acronym for I Certainly Am Not Trying. '

Negative - I'll never reach my weight goal
Positive - I am going to learn new healthy habits, which will eventually lead to my weight loss goal

Neg. "I can't do this"
Pos. "I CAN and WILL do this!"

Neg. "I'll never reach my weight goal."
Pos. "It won't happen overnight, but as long as I'm determined I WILL reach my weight goal!"

Have a wonderful day,

That's a good reminder. I have been telling myself I am going to lose weight for the last 2 weeks and I made some progress. I tell myself I am going to work out, and I make myself go the gym.

What a great reminder! I've caught myself in negative self talk so many times! One thing I've heard that's so true is "whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're right!" Your body will follow your brain!

Also, I remind myself that CAN'T is an acronym for I Certainly Am Not Trying.

For the thought - "I'll never reach my weight goal" I would say "It may take a little bit, but I am doing my best to eat like I should and exercise so that I will see my weight goal."

For the thought - "I can't say no to food" I would say "I can say yes to foods that are healthy for me"!

You guys all have a great day!

Shari

POSITIVE SELF-TALKING helps you replace negative thoughts with the kind of thoughts and messages that will help you feel and perform better.

By taking on an optimistic, realistic outlook and regularly using POSITIVE SELF-TALKING, you're more likely to take the positive actions that will help you succeed. If you expect to fail, on the other hand, you probably will! And remember that "failing to plan is... planning to fail". YOUR PERCEPTIONS DETERMINE YOUR RESPONSES TO LIFE!

What positive message could you give yourself in the following circumstances?

Negative Thought:
I can't do this.

Positive Self-Talking: (how can you look at the situation more optimistically and realistically?)
"I have achieved other things before, so I CAN do this, too!"
*That's the example... what else could you say?


Negative thought:
I'll never reach my weight goal.

Positive Self-Talking:

Negative thought:
I can't say no to food.

Every winning team has a motivating coach behind it. This tool turns YOU into your own best coach and #1 fan. Use it to become inspired by your own thoughts and messages.

What are you telling yourself today? Is it what you'd tell a friend? Is it what you'd want to hear from a friend or loved one? Is it positive?
