Default If anyone can do this... YOU CAN DO THIS...

We are definitely imperfect beings. How else did we end up where we are? So there are lots of attitude adjustments, life changes, and growth to be done. "We gots lotsa fixin' to do." Now, with all those things to be changed and all those pounds to lose... its easy to focus solely on what is wrong with us- and that easily becomes a negative energy in our lives. So this is an exercise is what is right with us. What about you makes you capable of success? What have you already accomplished? Finding it in you to acknowledge your strengths is just as important as identifying your weaknesses.

*I lost 60lbs, and even though I've slipped, I can do it again.
*I'm stubborn
*I'm physically strong
*I have the ability to inspire others and motivate
*Resilience. I get back up, so no set back can really hold me back.
*I can push it.

Because of these things... I am unstoppable.

I can do it cause:

I am my own person and I make my own choices.
Ive already lost 40 lbs.
Others have done it, so can I. Dont for a second think others are better than you.
I am a strong person who can do anything if I try hard enough.
I deserve to be happy.
I deserve to be healthy.

Thanks for starting this thread!

I've done it before. I can do it again.

I honestly believe that each time we lose weight, we learn another piece of the puzzle. I can perservere until I get it right or stop trying.

Agreed. Every time that I've failed, I've learned one more thing that I take with me the next time I get back up. And one of these days, all of those pieces are going to fall into place.

I figure if I made it yesterday, I can make it today.

I'm new to weight loss, but I know I have it in me because I've fought through so many other obstacles in my life. If I can make it through those though periods in my life, I can make it through losing all this weight.

Because I am a massively strong person. I have lived through stuff that would have obliterated a lot of people. It took a long time to get over it, but I did. I can do anything. I want to lose weight more than anything else on earth. And I will succeed. In fact I already HAVE succeeded; I just haven't crossed the finish line yet.

Today I am at day # 225 of 100% on plan. Tomorrow, day 226. Saturday, day 227. Infinity.

I am a great person and I deserve happiness.
I have spent so much time making sure others are happy/healthy and now it's my turn.
I've been through so much in my life, and I'm still kicking.
People tell me I have a cute face, and I'd love to have a cute body to go with it.
I am going to do this for ME, even though I know that being healthy will be a good thing for my future husband and children as well.
I want and deserve more energy.
I have strong legs.
I've lost almost 30 lbs. in the past and I can do it again!
I have a great family and friends who are always there for me, whether I fly or I fall.
I am stubborn and determined.
I know HOW to get healthy.
I can do it.

[P.S. I needed this. Big time.]

I can, therefore I will
Seriously, I look at myself in the mirror every morning, and say (out loud) You can do this, you can stay on track, you can drink your water. Actually, after writing this, I realized, I should be saying...You WILL not you can. Hmmm

I can do this because:

*I am commited to my ever growing knowledge of nutrition and the powerful effects it has on my health and my life.

*I am ready to embrace beauty and confidence on every level. I can have them too. WHY NOT ME?

-I can overcome my eating/dieting issues without turning to unhealthy and dangerous alternatives to lose like before
-I know I am on my way to be a good role model for my children, especially my 5 yr old daughter
-I know deep down there is a sexy chick waiting to be freed

I really needed this, not only in terms of sticking to my weight loss plan, but also as motivation to keep on keepin' on in school, etc.

I can do this because:
-I've lost over 180 lbs, so why not the few more to my goal?
-I deserve to have the satisfaction of reaching and maintaining my goal weight.
-I deserve to wear all of the cute clothes that I have dreamed about for so long
-I am a strong person who can get through anything.
-I want to prove to myself that I am unstoppable.
-I want to be healthy and serve as a good example to others, especially my family members who are obese.
