Discipline Extreme Makeover: Me Edition Lifestyle

Extreme Makeover: Me Edition – Inspiration

Can you believe how quickly the week is passing?! It’s time for Extreme Makeover: Me Edition. If you want to join the fun, head over to Amber’s blog to check out the details.

This week,  Amber’s weekly question is:

What inspires you? 

I know it sounds a little silly, but I just imagine myself looking how I want to look and feel.  When I’m tempted to eat something that I shouldn’t I just remind myself how much better I’ll feel when the craving passes because I didn’t give in… There’s nothing wrong with having what we want from time to time, but it’s okay to say no to myself sometimes too, especially if it means I’ll be better off in the long run.  The thought of looking in the mirror and liking what I see is all the inspiration I need.  But I enjoy having a support system at home and in the blogosphere too because I’ve met so many who understand me.  And your lives inspire me too. 

My next weigh-in is tomorrow, and I hope it’s a good one.  I’ve eaten well this week and also sent a good deal of time on my recumbent bike.  I’ve rocked the Weight Watchers Vegetable Challenge just as I had planned, and I’ve been to the gym.  

I look forward to learning what inspires others so join the fun at Amber’s blog, but only if you want to meet some nice people who are totally supportive. 😉

    Wishing you great loss tomorrow.
    Remember to take this as a lifestyle change not a diet.
    This all starts from the inside and it has been proven that a person is more successful if they envision what you want to look and feel like. Try it in great detail. Write it down and see what happens as you focus on this.
    Hugs, Bobbi Jo

    I have been having to tell myself that no, I don't "deserve" that candy bar, or that coke with extra ice that I love so much. What I deserve is to be healthy, and not have to take blood pressure medication. I want them…and maybe if I could have them in moderation it would be ok…but that's not me…I want it all! That's why I'm here.

    Hope the scale tells you something great tomorrow!

    I have to remind myself thatI don't REALLY want ice cream/sugar/wahtever… what I REALLYwant is to feel happy. And sweets aren't going to do it!

    Good job saying no to junk and YES to the life you want.
