Tonight I went to a Motivational meeting, the topic was Positive thoughts. Here are some of the things that were mentioned...
-It is important to do positive talk with yourself ( and everyone used to think talking to yourself was bad :)
- When you have a set back, don't get discourage that happens to all of us sometimes
-Stay around friends and family who support you, not ones who criticize you
-Work on your self esteem
-Set up your environment to help you make healthy choices
-Start Victory journals ( even if it is just one accomplishment a day )
"Success isn't about luck, but rather about choosing to think positively and acknowledge accomplishments.

So you are probably wondering where this meeting was? It was my Weight Watchers meeting. I just started last week, and I have to say ( being a motivational speaker myself ) I should have been going for years just to have such great and positive energy that they have there. It was impressive to hear people's stories and find out a bit about their lives and what they have overcome.
I know some of you might wonder if I really have enough to lose to go to Weight Watchers? Well, I do and even though it is not alot, I really felt like I needed to do it. My body has changed as I am getting older, and those extra few pounds are not getting any easier to get off. So I wanted to be pro-active and try to get on top of it before it gets bad.
What a great thing for me, I love the accountability and I don't like to disappoint people ( not that the ladies that weigh you in care ) but still it seems a good fit for me.
Need to head to bed, but remember to keep those positive thoughts coming!
Good night dear friends!
