Day 80 Get A New Title (Sunday's lesson after all)


When we create a negative view of ourselves as fat, lazy, or a failure, we will usually match that by how we live. So motivating with a "fat" photo usually backfires.

Use Positive Words to help you focus on your potential instead of your mistakes. Create an image of yourself moving forward and making progress.

Jorge Cruise of The 3-Hour Diet says to create a new NAME TAG or something special to call yourself. Use a very descriptive name so that you will live in a way to make the title real for you like 'sexy mama' or 'power woman.'

Your New Description
Besides your new title, pick a word or phrase that describes yourself WITHOUT referring to your weight or your size. Then use that word anytime you are deciding how to manange difficult food choices. If you chose fit rather than thin, you might ask yourself, "How would a fit person handle this?"

For Today:
Choose a word or phrase for describing yourself (fit, balanced, healthy, etc.)
Put your new word in the sentence, "I am a ____person" and write it in your notebook.
Describe your daily life by saying, "This is what a ______ person does."

(More from me later)

At the end of this lesson, we will have completed 71-80. We've come this far in our 100 days!

Don't stop now. If you are struggling to stick with it, push yourself to finish one more day. You'll be another day closer to achieving your weight loss goals.
