Okay this sounds weird but I decided that I can give myself goals and for every daily goal I accomplish, put a quarter in the weight loss jar or whatever is comfortable for you. Also, for every mile I walk a day in excess of my goals. I started at 192 and got on a slippery slope after I reached 188 and decided spice things up by adding my daily reward to be used at certain milestones (like each 10lbs.). Below is my example; however, you can change it to meet your specifications. Each one of us is unique so you may prefer: dancing, walking, biking, pilates and etc. there are different intensity levels as well so what I suggest is to get an index card that is neon colored (because it is easy to find in your purse) and writing out your daily goals. It is small enough to carry around and look at during red lights or standing in line somewhere. You could be creative and on the reverse side draw pictures, put stickers, or tape a picture from a magazine like a mini collage.
