Day 1

Monday, June 03, 2013

I started reading 100 Days of Weigh Loss, by Linda Spangle.
Day 1 is called "I used to be that way..."

The first part talks about past fears. When I lost weight before, what happen that I stopped.
Things I put down are:
-loss of motivation
-scared of outcome
-because I didn't do it before, I can't do it this time
-I am not worth it
-I am meant to be fat my whole life.

Next write new ending for this time.
I used to ______________ (fill in your old behavior), but not I ______________(write in your new ending).
What I wrote:
I used to think I was meant to be fat my whole life, but now I know I am worth having a healthy body.

That last statement is a strong one. Makes me realize I have to work on my negative thinking of myself. But working on it is better then not doing anything about it.

    Welcome, It all starts with a day one. Find support it has really helped with the motivation bit surrounding yourself with others that have similar goals and positive outlooks.

    I find those "I used to __ but now I __" statements to be really helpful. It's one of the ways I stopped eating fast food. I'm not sure why it works, but it does!

    Thank you for sharing this. It is really what I needed to see right now. I am on day 7 of starting over after gaining back 50 lbs. I think I need to pick up this book.

    Try putting index cards up around your house with positive messages. I have them all over my house right now to help me with the negative thoughts about myself. :)
