UPDATE - NEGATIVE THOUGHTS!

Just a quick update on my surgery - it went well and I am up and ready to work today. Unfortunately no exercise for 1 week (light walking only)so this will put me back one week on my marathon training but to stay in good shape I will do as my Doctor tells me.


Yesterday I was talking with a friend and we were talking about our attitudes. I know I have posted before about I don't have a high opinion of myself and that I always talk about myself in a negative way well my friend was telling me some things that I do and she is right they are phrases I say when I am embarrassed or just think I cannot do something. So my new goal is to NOT say anything negative about myself and always think positively even when I don't think I deserve it. In the last few months I have realized that I can accomplish a lot things in my life just by saying I CAN and just doing it and not let the negative thoughts get me down. It is tough when you don't think you deserve it but in my heart I know I do.

Those are very good thoughts you posted - getting rid of negativity was really hard for me, but slowly, slowly, as we lose fat and (not coincidently) gain self-esteem, bunches of negativity seem to unburden your shoulders! Keep up the good work and creating the new goals - being creative is part of your success! Awesome! You help me remember what I tried to do as I was losing the weight in the first place. Very similar to your thoughts! Thanks so much.

Great post - catching yourself is the first step to improving on this goal. And I'm always a sucker for books like The Power of Positive Thinking by Ziglar. Looking forward to hearing about your progress!

This is an excellent goal. Positive self-talk is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves. Thanks for the reminder.

Glad to hear you're recovering well!
