|1st N Weight Loss: Couch Potato Challenge: Day 7 - Celebrate|
Here are some surefire tips to help you on your journey.
1. Avoid Negativity.
Negative people are all around us. They can include our loved ones as well as a dear friend. Most often, it is the opinions of total strangers that breeds the most negativity. To think, someone who does not know or understand you is able to voice a reasonably thought out opinion about you, is ridiculous.
No, you should not avoid those who are close to you, rather there are areas of conversation that are less profitable. Accept criticism constructively, but steer the conversation away from nonstop negative banter. Negativity will grow on you unless you take control.
2. Build Yourself Up.
No, I do not mean for you to puff yourself up with pride, rather you can be your best source of encouragement by encouraging yourself. How can you do this? Read the testimonies, or information at 1st N Weight Loss of others who have gone before you, and succeeded.
3. Go Back to Square One.
Should you find yourself wavering, recall those things that encouraged you to take your 1st step of faith in the first place. Recall what it takes to succeed: discipline, self confidence, independence, hard work, sacrifice, etc. Look forward to the anticipated results.
Finally, remember the biggest you have ever allowed yourself to be...imagine yourself at that weight again, now that you have lost it. Blahhhh! Use whatever it takes to motivate you.
So, toss off the negative thoughts and embrace that which is uplifting, inspiring, encouraging, warm, friendly, and helpful. You are on track to achieving great things as long as you do not let yourself become derailed by the negative words of others.
Congrats on making it through the first week......theres no turning back, and the world is waiting to see the new you!
Im proud of you, and extremely honor to be a part of your journey!
