Powerful Words!

Ever have anyone say to you that you look like you are losing weight? I LOVE hearing those words! Especially when they comes from my husband. Which is exactly what I heard from him today. I was getting ready to have a wonderful Saturday with my man, and as he walked in the bathroom, he looked at me and said "Bec, you look like you are losing weight." Well, I don't think I have to tell you how that made me feel. Yes, GREAT! But even though it felt great, my next response was anything put positive. I was like, "Really? It probably is just the clothes I have on." And similar statements like that. Ever been there?

It got me to thinking about the power of words and the way we can use them and effect others...including ourselves. Encouraging words are so POWERFUL and in our culture, we hear more negative and discouraging than positive and encouraging words. It can become a habit. Since we are all about making and creating healthier habits here at the 52 club, what do you think about us 52 Club gals agreeing to make an effort to speak more positive words of encouragement to one another, to those around us and especially to and about ourselves? I think we might be surprised by how it effects our lives AND our goal of taking our bodies back!

Let me know what you think.

Wanted you to see my amazing man that spoke those powerful words to me today.
This was Christmas 2010. He's a wonderful encourager!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Until next time ~ sweet, positive and slender dreams! ;-)

  1. Hi! I found you surfing on Picket Fences. You are so right, words are very powerful! And it's so easy to say the wrong ones out of habit! I've been blogging about loving yourself and saying so when looking in the mirror, it all ties in!
