Three little letters!

There is a trend happening and I for one want it to go away. It might be in a blog, it might be in your everyday life, it might be just in your head...oh, ah - just three little letters. Some of us have seen it for years, others might be new to it, but all of us are fighting to keep those letters our of our lives for the rest of our lives. You know - F - A - T - oh, boy....three little letters. Three letters all put together make up such a BIG thing (hey - ho - wo  - three more little letters - you see the trend??- yikes). I have seen those letters in a lot of posts this week and I am sure there will be more to come. There is the post from Diana where that word was said during her vacation, then the other post from Leaving (which by the way uses those three letters in her blog), had a moment where that word is being said in a question. Then there is this one from McGee about how frustrated she is this week. I could go on and on.....but want to make my point....

I think they need to strike that word from the dictionary. In fact, what about taking out HUGE, LARGE, and the list could go on and on and on. I know that I say that word often - either out loud as I am getting ready for work in the morning and looking in the mirror. Or in my head as I am trying on a new shirt or even an old one in my closet. Putting those three letters together can make an impact on how we feel, how we see ourselves, how the rest of our day will go. Boy oh boy oh boy!!!

I am, however, working on changing my vocabulary. I have decided - that I WILL NOT use that word anymore. In fact, when I even have to write about it, thinking I might just use F, but that might throw many people off. I want to see words that have more than just three little letters -

Feeling Good

Even words that I have not seen for many years - Sixteen, Fourteen, Twelve, Ten and I am going to dream and one day might even accomplish the word Eight back into my vocabulary. Shirt size, pant size, dress size - those words will flow out of me like they are nothing. I will be PROUD (yes, another word to use) to tell many how well I have done, what I have accomplished, how I did it and I will be SMILING the whole time.

Find the Motivation Road, turn down Positive Street and a final curve to Success Square!!

The struggle to drop the pounds is hard, but many of us ARE doing it, WILL continue to do it and the GOAL will be reached. We have hills to climb so that we can make it down the path of success. Trust me, I do know how hard it can be. I wish it could be easier, that there would be a quick fix, but know this that I am so proud of myself for trying to lose the weight, proud of my friends for helping me and proud that there are many others out there doing the same as me - some working harder then me, but still doing it!!!!

Don't worry - I am not always this motivated or energized. I too have my moments and have been having many struggles this week. Emotionally and physically, but I will not let three little letters control me!! I won't - I can't and will try my hardest to make sure those three little letters can slip out of my brain. Cheering everyone on that is struggling with losing the extra pounds and I sure hope that you will do the same for me!!

Find some new words that will inspire you - write them down - put them on a vision board !!! STAY STRONG - LOOK HOW FAR YOU HAVE COME - KEEP GOING - YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

Staying MOtivated MO

Bravo, on an awesome post! Speak your powerful words into existence, Mo. Stick to the positive words that change-for YOU must believe it first before it actually happens. You are living the changes! The change is happening from the inside out. It is so important to be impeccable with our words to ourselves for we all are beautiful, stong, determine and committed no matter what stage of this successful journey we are in. There will be much celebration as we and our blogging friends reach our goals. So as we find the new words that have the greatest meaning to us I wish everyone the one thing that I always say-
Always on the move- MER

I love the new words. You should take 'em and write 'em down on little pieces of paper and have your son hide them throughout the house so you'll find them as you go about your week. I bet he'd have fun doing that, too.

Win-Win! Cuz we're all about winning it these days, right?!?
