So today I went shopping and I'm sure many of you will understand this, but I hate shopping. Nothing looks good, doesn't fit like you hope it would, you went up a size, looks cute of the hanger but not on you, etc. You get my point. Well today was amazing for me. It was the complete opposite! I tried on a pair of shorts that were down a size, which was a surprise cause I've only lost 7 lbs. And they looked so great! I walked out of their with a smile on my face. Can I tell you why it was so great, other than the reasons I just pointed out, self talk!! Just like my Spark coaches have said, you yourself are your own number one cheerleader. If you change all the negative thoughts and self talk to yourself, your attitude really starts to change as well. When you tell yourself that you can do this or that you aren't at your goal weight but you are beautiful it really starts to sink into your mind. Your thoughts start to change for the better. You no longer have those negative thoughts pop into your mind first. The positives start to surface and that is all you start seeing. I encourage all of you to really try this. Talk to yourself everyday! Point out all the good and don't even look at the bad. It really changes the whole attitude of your day and how you hold yourself and treat others. I'm far from my goal weight, but I'm really believing that I can do this and I'm cheering myself on everyday. Everyone try doing the same thing! Have a great week everyone!
