Books that Offer You Positive Inspiration

In addition to your reasons WHY you want to lose weight, and your Dream Board, another source of motivation can be books that inspire you. I think that finding positive affirmations are very helpful in two ways. First, if you are having a bad day, or are very stressed out, the right affirmation can calm you down before you head for that box of cookies or bag of chips. Second, if you have had a diet breakdown, affirmations can allow you to forgive yourself sooner and not let the breakdown turn into a total abandonment of your diet. I have a fun affirmation that I read in a Dr. Wayne Dyer book, and it goes like this, "Good Morning. This is God. I will be handling all of your problems today. I will not need your help, so have a miraculous day!"

If you have a suggested affirmation, or a book you like to read, please contribute it here.
