Stop Saying "Only"

*** Pet Peeve Rant Alert *** There is nothing that irks me more than when I see people say, "I've ONLY lost XX pounds."
C'mon people.... let's celebrate our losses and stop being negative about what hasn't happened yet. Stop comparing yourself to what others are doing and focus on your own triumphs. You've lost an "AMAZING xx pounds"... celebrate it.
Stop getting down on yourself for being a success. This isn't a race to a finish line, this is about the rest of your life and there's no rush to get to a goal weight. Enjoy the journey. Take a few minutes to look around and see what fantastic things are happening to you today.
Rejoice in your improving health and how much progress you're making. Be proud of yourself instead of worrying about what else you have yet to do. Be kind to yourself. No more negative self talk, Ok?
