Believing in Yourself

Believe In Yourself

Believe in yourself, in the power you have
to control your own life, day by day!

Believe in the strength that you have deep inside
and your faith will help show you the way!

Believe in tomorrow and what it will bring,
let a hopeful heart carry you through

For things will work out! If you trust and believe
there's NO LIMIT to what you can do!

I found Believe in Yourself over on Dani's blog (TKD Chick Staying Skinny, a Battle to Keep the Weight Off! ) a while ago (June) and felt it was time to re-post.

It's a simple task and almost everyone can do it, but believing in myself is something that I have always struggled with.  I have a few ideas why, but I can't just pinpoint one thing.  I am working through the things that I think maybe the reasons, but believing in me is still hard.

The good news though, is that because of my bloggy friends who always provide support and encouragement I am starting to believe that my dreams will come true.  I will get to my goal weight, but most importantly, I will put my negative demons behind me (or maybe in a jar so I can keep an eye on them) and I WILL believe in myself.  

I used to believe in me so it is only a matter of time before I find that person again - I know she is hiding in a fat suit and it is slowly, very slowly disappearing and I know that once I find her again, the fat suit will be gone forever.

This post is really to say a big thank you to all of you out there who give me so much inspiration (whether you know it or not) and who help guide me to a healthier, happier lifestyle :)


  1. Thanks for this "believe in yourself". I also love the inspiration we get from our blogger friends!!!

  2. Thanks for this inspiration! I needed it today...starting to get nervous about a solo 14 miles tomorrow. I needed a reminder to BELIEVE in myself!!!

  3. Love it. thanks Jane. Let me know what the doc says ... your back sounds exactly the same as mine ... I'm going to go to neuro cause my hammy pain is still so bad (due to compression of nerves in back) - gah stupid back.

  4. It's funny...I've always been able to believe in others, but not myself. Once I started to what I can do...things started turning around for me. It's amazing! Keep up the great work!

    Keep focused!!!
