Atleast ONE positive EVERYDAY !

I feel like everyday I am complaining about something.
I am not quite sure why that is..
I think over the last 7 years of living with MS and the years before diagnosis.
I complained all day every day about the way that I felt and it has become a habit.
Not so much complaining all day. But I do at least once a day..That's for sure!

I need to be grateful for the little things. No matter how little they are.
I may gripe because the scale does not read what I want it to. Or that my calories came in above what they should
But I am honestly enjoying the journey. Regardless of what the scale says I know that one day I will make it to goal.

In the past I was so caught up on the day. "I must be 140 by summer"
It is what dooomed me for failure every time.
This time around I am just taking it one day at a time.

Tonight for instance..By the time Jack got to Panda Express they had yucky old food. So he called and said how about McDonald's. I agreed then felt guilty the entire time I ate it..
I had turned the package over to realize they have nutritional information and I ate over 50 Grams of fat!!!
I was flabbergasted!!! To say the least!
But just one more thing to BITCH about!
I made that decision..I could have said get me a salad and a chicken sandwich. But i didn't. I got frys instead.
So I am making horrible decisions,kicking myself for it,then upset when the scale does not move???
There is something wrong with this picture.
It means I still have a lot of work to do.

But today I am gonna start by finding one good thing out of my day to be proud of!
Then I will do that every single day!!!
Just because I had McDonald's does not mean I am doomed or that I am a horrible person that will not succeed. I had a weak moment and I am sure it will not be my last.

Today I am proud of the fact that I drank over 60 Ounces of water and still going!
Then i was thinking to say I am proud of that because for the last few days I have not gotten much if any.
But then that sounds like a negative!



  1. I LOVE this attitude.

    Last year I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer and ended up having a hysterectomy when I wanted to have a baby. It was a hard, hard year. One of the things that really helped me was slowing down to appreciate life. Now my health is fine but the appreciation of what is (and isn't) important in life has really stayed with me.

    I keep track of "daily pleasures" intermittently, and I keep a list of 100+ things that make me happy so I have go-to strategies when I need them.

  2. It is always good to look at the positives!! Take a deep breath and move on. Nothing you can do about the fries, but burn them off now. Keep your chin up! You are doing amazing!
