Let's give this a try

Yesterday was one of the rare times I had the Dr. Oz show on in the background and there was a woman who engaged in "fat talk."  Always thinking negatively about herself, cutting down on herself in front of her friends, etc.

(Sound familiar?  *raising hand*)

I don't do that nearly as much as I used to but sometimes it still slips.

Some lady came on and asked the woman to describe herself with five positive non-weight related adjectives.  I thought this was a good practice to remind ourselves that we are more than the weight we tend to focus on.

So here are mine:

1. Thoughtful
2. Sentimental
3. Funny
4. Direct
5. Creative

Now it's your turn!

  5. I had Dr. Oz on too, just to hear him yell at Hoda & Kathie Lee for all their wine drinking, LOL! I thought for a moment about five words I would use to desdcribe myself, without dropping the "F" bomb, as they called it.
    1. Caring
    2. Considerate
    3.Thoughtful
    4. Smart
    5. Creative

    I feel uncomfortable doing this....must be all those years when the "F" bomb was the more accurate description, it just feels wrong to say NICE things about myself....why is that?

    1. I probably should replace one of those first 3 (which really are basically the same thing) with 'Self-Disciplined.' I NEVER could have said that before.
