    Right so - this is possibly my favourite lightbulb so far...

    What happened?

    I looked in the mirror and saw my shoulders and sexy vest and shiny eyes and big grin

    What were my most important thoughts, i.e. Hot (Hmm - will replace hot for :DLOVELY:D) Thoughts?Underline your Lovely Thought/s

    • Flip me! I'm Gorgeous! (Well actually, it was the ruder version of that)
    How I felt %
    • Delighted
    • Gorgeous
    • Proud
    What I did/might have done in the past

    Smiled LOADS and giggled to myself.

    What I might have done in the past was start looking for what wasn't gorgeous or just gazing at the one or two things I liked - this time I saw the whole shining WONDER OF ME!

    Evidence for Lovely Thought

    See above! I feel sexy in tracksuit bottoms and I have a lovely elfin face and Audrey Hepburn poise. Lots of evidence!

    Evidence against Lovely Thought

    None!

    More realistic thought
    Do I look like I need to be more realistic? Hmmmm - keeping positive thought records as suggested by the book is not so easy with this template. I'm still gorgeous!

    How I feel now

    GORGEOUS!


    How I might behave now
    Like I am princess of all the universe! I am a gorgeous laydee! All together now...
    'I feel pretty! Oh so pretty!'

    It is good to read a post like that, Sarah. It gives hope to everyone who is just beginning their journey, or sees the way ahead stretching off into the far, far distance.

    You have achieved so much, and worked so hard to be sitting there feeling fab. You deserve your success. Keep enjoying it!

    Hi Sarah,
    You look hot hot hot!! (peeked at your blog) and no wonder you feel gorgeous. I think Hayley Westenra should sing the song specially for you (she's singing a 'West Side Story' special soon).
    I also read with interest some of your hot thoughts. I'm having problems getting to grips with this CBT concept as I seem to override the thoughts and go straight to the feelings. I may reread yours again and learn, as you've been very clear with your examples, so thank you. If you have any tips/hints to help me find the lightbulb moment, please pass them on.
    Congratulations on your journey which really seems to embody the ethos of what LL is about. And thanks for sharing it ...

    Talk about Hot Thoughts!

    I am glad you feel so positive with your reflection, and indeed why not.

    Remember that feeling

    Aww huge hugs for you! Feel so happy for you! It's not just the fact that you recognise your own beauty (a gift in itself, albeit earned!) but that you dont dimiss the message when you say it in your head! So go princess Cerulean and conquer the world!!

    Cor - I'm overwhelmed at the response!

    Thank you, everyone!

    Tishtosh - the one thing I can't help you with is recognising your lightbulbs - only you will know when your brain goes ding - only you know when your thinking has changed or you've spotted a behaviour pattern. But thinking about how you think and doing thought records does help you to sift through and find them and maybe become more open to them. I hope that helps.

    What a fab post. So heart felt, I nearly had a tear in my eye.

    You really do look stunning and I can't belive the difference in the pics. You already have a great figure now and I do love the HP pose (Audrey Hepburn not the sauce).

    It is so nice to read someone being so positive about the way they look and feel and i hope that this can inspire all of us to look in the mirror and see something we like about ourselves however heard it may be xx
