100 lb. Club - My Daily Affirmation

View Full Version : My Daily Affirmation

Hello all,

Sometimes we focus on the negative and forget about the positive. I try to be a positive person. I'm in a stall out (after only 8lbs!), and while I'm trying to not be discouraged, it's getting hard. So, I thought "verbalizing" a daily affirmation will help keep me motivated.

Feel free to join in with your own affirmation, add any comments, or ignore me completely :D

I will not focus on the fact that I didn't lose anything this week, but will rejoice in the fact that I didn't gain back what I've already lost.

Good idea! I have foregone the scale, as it makes me too crazy right now, given my lack of sleep and too-busy schedule. So, sometimes it's hard to get the immediate positive feedback I crave. So -

I will appreciate that I no longer feel hopeless about my weight. Even though I can't focus the same amount of time and energy I did last time I lost a significant amount of weight, I feel so much better physically and mentally than when I feel hopeless.

It certainly is a good idea to focus on the positive things in our lives. I, too, tend to get discouraged the scale shows a small gain or I hit a plateau, even for just a week. So . . .

I will accept the ups with the downs, because the downs will win in the end.

This weight loss game is sometimes taxing, the weight comes off ALOT slower then it goes on! I said this in another thread and I truly mean it, this is now my daily mantra: You are worth the effort, just make yourself a priority.

I think when we get caught up in everyday life we often forget to make ourselves a priority, whether it be to take time to exercise, plan out our meals or sit down and read a book to unwind.
