...we’re so used to slipping little negatives into our everyday conversation, as half-jokes and self-depreciating, commiserating stabs. Instead of “I’m so grateful I cheated on my diet for a doughnut, it was worth it,” say “I’m so grateful that I enjoyed every delicious bite of my doughnut treat today.”Instead of "I only lost .4 lbs this week," I feel like- "I lost .4 lbs this week! A loss that when added to everything else I've done, makes me 11.8 lbs lighter than I was just a mere 3 months ago!" I haven't lost all the weight yet, but I am on my way and have made a great deal of progress. I am learning to eat better, to say no, to cook, and most of all, appreciate where I'm at in life.
Go out and spread gratitude today! Thank someone and really mean it.
Week 12: -.4 lbs
