Default **MOOD UPLIFTER ALERT** One positive thing about me today is...

This here ladies is a challenge that I put on the table that each one of us put the effort in to say at least 1 positive thing about ourselves each day.

The reasoning behind this is the fact that as I recommit myself to losing this weight once and for all, I have found that what has been lacking from past times is the mental appreciation of myself and my accomplishments to keep that drive going. So, in turn, I now promise myself 3 things:
1. I will not say anything negative about myself. Especially not after receiving a well-meaning compliment.
2. I will smile. At every opportunity. (when appropriate)
3. I will say 1 good thing about myself every day.

Let's see how many of us can summon up the courage to look at ourselves and say one nice thing ... extra points when it's a PMS day or particularly nasty day.

Easy, right? well let's find out!


Thanks Star2be for suggesting this thread!

I guess I should start...

One positive thing today is that when I got dressed this morning, I thought my blouse looked particularly nice.

Worn it plenty of times around the office but today I happened to get 3 ppl commenting on how it's a nice top.

Positive energy in action? I think so.

I am proud of myself for not giving up (on weight loss, or on life). The last 2 weeks have been TOUGH, but I am still in the game.

I am proud of myself today because I kept my good spirit, even though my computer broke down and I didn't do half of what I had planned to do (which will probably get me into some trouble).

Excellent attitudes Ladies!! This is a great thread, positive energy is a self fufilling prophecy, just like negative energy! Believe it, and you can acheive it!

My positive today: I french braided my hair last night and when I woke up this morning, it was so pretty and soft. It was a good start to my day. I also nourished my body with everything it's needed today, healthy, green, and moist!

One positive thing today is that I planned basically my whole day's worth of food...and I thought to myself "I have extra calories for a tall starbuck's"...but then I re-evaluated and thought that it would be un-healthy for me to drink an unplanned Starbuck's drink worth around 200 calories just because I am trying to fill my calories up.

I realized that I should only eat what I want and plan to eat, and should focus on eating healthy foods, and not just filling my day with junk

I have continued to stay positive even though my living situation and school really sucks right now.
