Default Things you tell yourself.

What's one thing you tell yourself as you journey towards health?

One of mine is: "If you run out of calories today you get a whole new set tomorrow. You aren't going to starve between now and breakfast!"

Nice one!
It took me ten years to get this fat. I am going to lose the weight even if it takes ten more years! - Not that I plan to do it in such a long time but it keeps me going when the scale doesn't move or when I feel I should be losing more.

Mine sound petty half the time but I tell myself, "Keep doing this. When you go to Playthink this year everyone will be amazed. Keep doing this. Plus you need new shorts and all of your nice ones have holes in them." Then I start imagining people fawning over my "fantastic new shape."

I remind myself how much fun it is going to be when I go back to Missouri (where I am from) and visit my friends and family, and how surprised they are going to be. My brother has already told me "keep it up and I won't even recognize you."

When I want to eat something I know I don't need or I've allready eaten, or whatever the case may be. I just tell myself, "I'm going to chose not to". I make the choice not to. Plus I have an infinity with birds tattoo on my hand and I got it to remind me that this is a lifelong journey that will not end, but it will free me when I'm down to my goal weight and on my journey because I'm learning more and more about myself everyday while on this journey.

I tell myself that I have earned the right to be healthy and enjoy my retirement. After hitting my all time high at the end of December and realizing that it's not supposed to take me 15 minutes figuring out how to get my shoes on and tied, I realized that my retirement would be both short and boring. Most of the time it comes in the form of a question such as Do you want to be able to hike eventually or eat a cookie now? Sometimes the cookie will win, but more and more the "eventually" is winning.

At the end of my life, am I going to wish for one more day with my son, or am I going to think eating too much junk food was worth giving up that extra time?

"It's easier to stay on plan than to get back on plan."

"That food is not about me."

"I don't have to want to--I just have to do it." (exercise, mostly)

I like to tell myself that if I've stayed on plan for the day, then even if I can't see it on the scale or in inches or whatever, I'm a little bit healthier than I was yesterday.
