Have in your mind a word of cheer,
For all who come your way,

For visual satisfaction - Another poster in a different thread (Nightkatt) reminded me about this...

Put pebbles, marbles, pennies or whatever in a jar (using the total amount of lbs you wish to lose). As you lose those lbs.. move the pebbles etc over to the lost jar. As the days and months go by... you will have a visual real life results in your eye sight. That will make you realize just what you have done!

Sometimes we are going to fail. The important thing is that we don't throw the towel in, and that we try again!

I don't know the last time I was comfortable in a tank-top, not to mention a swimsuit. I don't know the last time I was a size medium top not to mention not shopping in a plus-size store. I know the last time I really wanted a top in the 'regular' sizes but was not available in the plus sizes. I know the last time I pulled at my t-shirt trying to get an extra give and the saggy ponch I felt when the seatbelt graceishly curved about my abdomen......I decided I don't want those things anymore. And if I win the lottery and want to fly first class to Ireland and i want to be comfortable.

Never let success get to your head. Never let failure get to your heart!! - anonymous

I truly feel this way this time around....trying to remain humble despite weight loss because I am still the same person at 225, 195, 185, 171....and it is too easy to re-gain!! (Fat does not equal bad, fat equals fat!) I'm a good person at any weight but I love being more fit!! - Lulu NH

Not sure this meets the "positive message" criteria, but it spoke deeply to me - sometimes its good to remember how we felt at our heaviest

From my calendar:

YOU are Strong, You are Wise and You are loved!

No Matter where life takes you or what path you choose, you will always meet challenges. This is the way life is. There are no guarantees, and no matter how many things you do right or how many rules you follow, there will always be that fork in the road that makes you choose between this way or that way. Whenever you meet this place, remember these things: You are Loved... Love will sustain you! You are Strong - prayer (or whatever you do to remind you of your strength) will get you through anything. You are WISE - the greatest gift of all lies within you!

You have a lot of wisdom inside you!

The voice of YOUR Soul will lead the way!

LIVE EACH DAY WITH GRATITUDE! from my calendar

Gratitude is one of life's greatest gifts, and it is free for the choosing. When we make this choice, we are demonstrating an understanding of our free will.

Gratitude is a practise... an exercise in which we train our minds to look at the good things before us each day, NO matter what is happening in our lives.

Gratitude is a state of mind we cultivate in ourselves that enables us to understand that often it is our greatest challenges and losses that bring us our greatest lessons.

Gratitude is the place from which we recognize life's compenations that are always before us, so we can enjoy each day with thanksgiving.
