I was very pleased with the compliments that everyone paid to themselves this past week! Be sure to continue to make positive comments about yourself often. Your journey to a new you must start INSIDE!!

Great job everyone! :o)

I like the mom that I am; not perfect but always trying to respond to my kids at their level and appreciate them for who they are. I like my own company. I like that I am never bored and can't imagined being bored while their are still so many books I haven't read, places I haven't seen, and people that might bring something to my life that I haven't met. I like that, with finding this website and this group, I've kept up this program for seven weeks, three weeks longer than I can usually sustain my effort. Progress is slow but I'm proud that I keep on keepin' on.

I like the way I physically feel closer to my husband when he grabs me for a hug. There is less stomach between me and him. His arm reaches further around me now-it makes for a happy sense of accomplishment, especially when I feel I am not achieving my goal fast enough.
I have so far to go and it so often seems I'm not getting there fast enough. Time is very selective with her pace. Ecstasy may only last a moment, but waiting seems to take forever. It is VERY HELPFUL to see and feel the little things that are happening now, to be aware of the present changes to know they are the result of belief in myself and the whole beautifully unique human that I am. It is reinforcement for holding my course...for I
do like my pirate smile and my sense of humor. I like how I tender I am to others. I like how my legs look in low heels now and how my fingers wear their rings better. I like my connection to others in Spark and its generation feeding my purpose.
I love the increased energy I have, and, my gosh, the physical pain I have lost from increased activity-no more hurting stiff legs and hips in the morning-no more 'cankles'!! I love my unique creativity and sense of style. I cherish my love of history, my heart for dancing, and my never ending faith in the hearts of others. emoticon

My favorite body part right now is my eyes. People have always complimented me on them.

I'm looking forward to my thinner neck and being able to see my collar bone again. Those were the body parts that really stood out to me the last time I lost weight.

OK, I haven't posted before, but I will with this one. I do wonder what my body will look like, I just look at my old pictures of me before babies (many years now) and I realize I will never look that way again, but, I am starting to get compliments from people now, so I will have to say that I still like my smile, and my legs are starting to look better. So I guess that is it for today.

OK...You all know that I'm a sap and I cry at the drop of a hat!! emoticon

I am so proud of you all for letting your wonderful characteristics shine!!! Yes, I did get a little teary-eyed...lol! Sometimes it is so hard for us to say something good about ourselves--especially when we are battling with our weight. At one time in my life I hated to even look at myself in the mirror. I had to stop. I made myself start looking in the mirror each morning and tell myself that I loved who I am. Even though people would tell me often how cute or pretty I was or that my shape is so nice I still did not like what I saw in the mirror. I finally came to a point where I gradually became to love who I am. Now I vow to help others realize their beauty--inside AND out!!

You all make me so proud and so happy!!!! Thank you so much for loving something about yourselves!!

Here's my positive thing about me for the day:
I LOVE to laugh!!!!!! emoticon
And I love making others feel good about themselves. :o) emoticon

I like the fact that I am losing inches.
I like the water aerobics class that I do 3 times a week, and know that it is helping me to get healthier.
I like my dark brown eyes.

What a great challenge!!

Okay, a few things I like about myself:
I love my eyes
I love my intelligence
I like the fact that I try really hard to treat people the way I'd like to be treated.

I like my persistence (OK stubbornness), it comes in really handy when the scale refuses to go down despite your best efforts. I will not be defeated emoticon !

OOOH! looks like I'm the first one.
I'm in a size 16-18 but they are big on me.
Eventhough I haven't lost weight...I'm losing inches so I am happy. emoticon

This week's challenge is more of a psychological challenge than a physical one. Many times people concentrate on the way their bodies will look in the future. The focus is on how great their bodies will look once their goal is reached. emoticon

We are going to take the time this week to note what we like about ourselves NOW! Whether it's our hair, our smile, our toes, our personality, or a certain part of our body, we are going to talk positive about ourselves ALL WEEK!! Let's not wait to receive compliments from others--we will compliment ourselves. emoticon

Each day, as many times as you would like, we will post to this thread stating something we like about ourselves. Don't be shy--and don't be modest!! It's our time to SHINE! emoticon

So go ahead and start bragging!! You are so WORTH IT!! (And don't worry, you still need to be getting in that cardio this week--heehee!)

Good luck, Team!!
