Day 66- Don't Even Start

From 100 Days of Weight Loss (Spangle)-

- Create on working a self-talk plan
- Create a variety of phrases that you can say to yourself again and again to strengthen your resistance.

You may notice that my plan is to put my own self-talk on the end of every blog post.  It is what I say to myself all the time because the other inside voices fight against it. I know it is years of low self-esteem. Years of messages that said that I was not good enough, not smart enough, not happy enough and so on, but since starting this blog and making myself write that self-talk has started as Mo would say change that "brain wave" I am making the pathway to my neurons of good self-talk stronger everyday and the other ones less.  The more I say it to myself the more I believe it. The more I write when when I comment on someone else's post the more I believe it.  I want my reader to believe it everytime they read it too.  In my head it is a win-win for me and anyone else who reads it.

Here are some other self-talk that Spangle suggests-

Don't even start!
Don't even go there!
Stay on top of your plan!
Hold your goals up high!
Live above the crowd!

Ok, the teacher in me is going to come out here-

Your homework assignment is to leave me a comment telling me-

What is your self-talk? It is ok if it the same as mine, but I am also hoping to borrow a few new ones. Thanks in advance!
Here is mine that I know so well-

YOU CAN DO IT!
STAY STRONG!
STICK TO YOUR GOALS!
IF YOU BELIEVE IT YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT!
JUST DO IT!
NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

Have a fabulous Friday!
Always,
Mer

I've been really trying, REALLY trying to improve previously desperately negative self-talk. Now I tell myself
You are doing your very best.
"its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life....for me...and I'm feeling good'
It's your time
You CAN do this
You have come a long way already
You ARE looking better
Great post ..looking forward to reading the next answers- Your positive self talk at the end of comments you leave for me really encourages, its a great idea

I'm sorry, I don't really have any self-talk comments that I can think of right now, I will have to think on that. But I wanted to say, I do appreciate yours that you leave for me. I hope you have a good week, Carla

You don't get to be perfect (because when I get hung up on perfect thats when things start going downhill)

Do the next right thing
