Self Esteem Tips and Positive Affirmations

No one responded to my last post. Well, one nice person did wish me luck, but that was about it. Ah well, at least my husband is being supportive. He has been a great help with working out. I've been working out twice a week for now. He really pushes me, he makes me mad some times, but he doesn't let me give up, and I always push harder than I think I can. I'm not weighing myself, not going to worry about numbers anymore. I will judge my weight loss on my clothes and how I feel. I've been feeling a lot better since working out first thing in the morning. My body just feels better afterwards, and I feel stronger phsyically and mentally. Easter weekend hasn't been very good food wise, but I'm not going to beat myself up about it. I will get there. I know that I will never be THIN or skinny. I just want to be lighter than I am now, and healthier for my family.

I came across an article awhile ago and I saved it specifically for this blog. It was on different ways to help boost your self esteem. The article states that some ways to boost your self esteem are: exercise, eating healthy, participating in things you enjoy, socializing with friends, and taking care of yourself. Those are all great tips, but I also wanted to add something in here about positive self affirmations. I believe that they do work; I've tried them myself. I wrote about them a long time ago here, but wanted to reiterate a few points. First, make a list of things you like about yourself. For instance: I am a caring person. I am a strong woman. I'm great at making people laugh. If you want, you can hang a list up around your house, so that you will see these things often. Repeat them to yourself a few times a day, especially at night before going to bed. You may feel silly at first, but after awhile, your mind will begin to believe these things about you, and you will notice that you develop more confidence in yourself.

If anyone is, or has used self affirmations, leave me a comment and tell me a few of the affirmations you use for yourself! It may give others a better idea on various things to say, or think about!

Fat Old Me.

I've been repeatedly asking myself if I should even bother to keep this blog going, or if I should just throw in the towel. I really have no regular followers on this blog. I've put the majority of my energy into my work at home blog, even my Rants In My Pants blog has more hits than this blog, lol. I don't have much time to network with other blogs, or recruit new followers, but am I ready to give up? This blog has actually been through a lot.

I started this blog in January of 2007. Initially it was going to be my weight loss blog. My Journey To A New Found me-- my struggle with losing weight. It was great at first, I lost 45 lbs on my own. I worked out at home, on my own, watched what I ate, and it worked! I went through a lot of difficult things in my marriage, and ended up gaining it all back, eventually.

Last year, I really began to work on myself. I went on an anti-depressant to help control my depression and anger problems. The meds. have helped immensely. I've really improved myself. I'm happier. I'm more patient. My marriage is going great right now. I'm in college now, improving my life and making new friends. I wrote about a lot of these changes in this blog as well. Since it all has to do with finding the NEW me.

There's just one thing that keeps holding me back. All of this fat!! I'm gaining control of everything else in my life, but why can't I control my weight?

I've started over today. Again. Trying to eat better, and work out a few times a week. My husband is helping out by pushing me with working out. He does a really good job with coaching, he pushes me to do more than what I think I can do. ..

I'm writing this post, asking for help from someone out there. Someone who knows what I'm going through. Someone who can help me through this. A cheering section, maybe? Someone that I can be accountable to? Is there anyone out there? I will even give you my private email if you are out there? I'm calling to you... can you hear me? The days and years are ticking by, and this weight is going to make my life shorter and shorter. I want to be around to watch my kids grow up, and have babies of their own. I'm gonna try, really try to write more in this blog, and my other blogs. This blog will be all about me, and becoming the woman I want to be. Weight loss, motherhood, wife-hood, college, work.. I'm finally growing up at the ripe old age of 32 (and only a few weeks left of this age, too, argh!!). Any takers?

Find Some Pain Relief Online

There is nothing worse than being in a tremendous amount of pain and not being able to do anything about it. I've been doing some research on pain relief and found something called Tramadol. Tramadol is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. The problem is, it can sometimes be difficult to buy Tramadol.

Tramadol blue book is a website that helps you find easy and affordable access to the medication online. They research online pharmacies and give you their opinion of where are some of the best places where to buy Tramadol.

There is a chance of side effects of Tramadol, but side effects come along with most medications that you get over the counter or prescription wise. There is a slight chance of side effects such as dizziness, nausea, constipation, headache and a few others, but this is only a slight chance.

Apart from human use, it can also aid in severe pain for your pets. No one likes to see their beloved pets in pain, do they?
