How Do You Talk to Yourself?

It's interesting how the body and mind work. When I look back on all the "then" moments and compare them to the "now" moments, there is such a HUGE difference. We really are what we tell ourselves......
I'm too fat.
I can't.
I need to go on a diet.
This is just how I was born.
It's too hard.
I'll never be small.
I like food too much.
I can't run.
I don't have time.
It's my metabolism.
I'm too tired.
I'm too old.
I don't enjoy exercise.
I can't give up sweets.
I'm unmotivated.
I'll start on Monday.
....and the list goes on. Any of this ever sound like words that have entertained your brain at one point or another?
The good news is.....we really can become what we tell ourselves.......
It makes me feel good to take care of myself.
I can do this.
I have energy.
I am happy.
I'm motivated.
I am a runner.
I can eat anything in moderation.
I'm healthy.
I'm small. (smaller)
I love to exercise.
I feel empowered.
I'm in control.
I can do hard things.
I am a winner!

  1. My favorite is the "I can do hard things" - One thing I'm consistently working on is being more aware of my thoughts. Great post!

  2. Wonderful post. Very motivating!

  3. Thank you for providing such motivation! I am just starting on my journey to lose 30 pounds and adapt a healthier lifestyle. I need to talk more positively to myself, thanks for the reminder :)
