Don't waste what you have.

"To be upset over what you don't have is to waste what you do have." (Ken Keyes) My take on that; don't put off everything to "when I lose weight". Enjoy yourself for where you are and who you are now and enjoy the journey as you work towards your goal.

Own your excuses

When you are making up excuses to get out of doing something (e.g. your morning walk) turn the excuse around so it starts with "I" - they usually sound so weak and silly that they loose their power
eg, "Its cold, can't go for a walk!" becomes "I don't want to go for a walk cause its cold"

Keeping Up With All Your Friend's Activities!

I have a lot of active friends and was struggling to keep up with all their activities so I could cheer them on, until I discovered, on the Start page, a link called Friend Feed. There it lists all the activities of your friends for the day, not just the current ones you see on the side of the page

Clean Vs. Not Exactly Clean Clothes

If I wear something for just a little while and don't want to throw it in the laundry, I hang the hanger backwards in my closet. Then, I can tell that piece of clothing didn't just come out of the laundry, but it is still clean enough to wear.

Getting out the door...

It is easier to get out that door for a morning walk when I lay all my exercise clothing and shoes out the night before, get to bed early and set that alarm. I am out the door in about 5-6 minutes. I start with stretching and easy walking then kick into high gear. I have no excuses... LOL

Tea

I drink a lot of herbal tea to make sure that I get at least eight cups of water a day. I can't usually stand to just drink plain water, so tea is a great alternative.
