Positive thought can lead to weight loss
Do you see yourself as a positive person?
Being negative can be very draining and can affect not only your mental wellbeing but also your health and how you feel physically.
Positive people tend to make smarter choices when it comes to eating, drinking, and lifestyle.
Make your health a priority, stop telling yourself what you “can’t do” and replace that negative thought with a positive one. Tell yourself that there’s nothing you can’t do and you might just end up believing in yourself.
Everyone needs some moral support whether it’s from friends, family or from a Weight Watchers meeting. Our members help and support each other and there’s nothing more motivating than being with successful, like-minded people who share the same goals.
Negativity breeds negativity, so don’t complain about something. Either find a way to change it or learn from your mistakes and move on.
See your glass as being half-full and not half-empty and you are off to a good start.
This week’s recipe:
Ice-cream raspberry ripple cake
One flan case, medium (18cm) Nine sponge fingers 500g low fat ice cream, slightly softened
300g raspberries crushed plus 100g extra to decorate 100g marshmallows Line a deep, loose-bottomed 18cm (7in) cake tin with cling film.
Trim the raised ridge from the flan case so that you have a flat circle of sponge.
Drop the sponge circle into the base of the prepared cake tin (discard the trimmings).
Halve the sponge fingers and line the edge of the cake tin with them.
Spoon the ice cream into a bowl and very gently push the crushed raspberries in.
Chop a third of the marshmallows and add them to the bowl.
Mix ever so slightly so that you have a marbled effect.
Spoon into the cake tin and level off the top. Return to the freezer for two hours or until needed.
To serve, carefully remove from the tin and peel away the cling film. Place on a serving platter, scatter with the remaining marshmallows and the extra raspberries and serve.
