I can do this
Before the birth of my daughter I read a book that encouraged positive thinking and telling yourself 'you can do it'. Along with other pain relieving techniques. Two hours after my labour started my baby girl was in my arms and I'd probably said 'I can do this' a hundred times during the contractions. What a contrast to the birth of my son, where I can vividly remember telling my midwife 'I can't do this' and 18 hours later, with the help of forceps it seemed that was true. I had needed help.
So what am I getting at... When I restarted Dukan earlier this year I told myself often... 'this time I'm going to do it'. I can do this. I can do this!!! And I believe it's made all the difference because I have done this and I'm still doing it.
I feel like I'm a brand new person who can tackle anything. It's a wonderful feeling.
It's quite amazing how much my weight and how I viewed myself effected everything in my life. My husband keeps commenting how much happier I am now. I didn't even realise I wasn't happy back then. I mean I knew I wasn't happy with my body but I didn't know it was effecting the rest of my life.
So my Dukan friends. Tell yourself everyday that YOU CAN DO IT and see if it help.
