getting in enough fruit

I make a point of having 1/2 orange and 1/2 apple with each breakfast. Or I cut fruit into oatmeal. I like fruit but find it hard to get in 3 or more servings per day. When I start with fruit in the morning, it motivates me to eat smart rest of day.

Transfer

A small hint for saving for Christmas: My bank automatically takes out money twice a month from my checking and puts it into a Christmas Club account. I just started doing this this year and am amazed at how much I have already saved for Christmas 2010!! YAY!

Plates

I put my food on a smaller plate so it 'looks' like I am getting a whole plate of food. Right now I am using a salad plate. We always think we aren't getting much to eat if our plates aren't full of food and this has really worked for me. Years ago when I was 'dieting', I used a saucer.

Picture Diary

It's not that hard anymore for me. I just bring out old pics of me weighing in at 545 lbs and look where I'm at now, 297 and remember how it FELT to be such a huge person. That's how it's easy for me to get back on track again !

My own place

I was tired of working my workouts around the gym, so I dedicated a place in the house to be "my gym". No fancy equipment, just DVD's, yoga props, weights and a bench, but it is all mine and nobody can tell me I have to go home! emoticon

Create a visual motivational chart with positive quotes.

Post in the area where you will see it first thing when you wake up, like inside the cabinet door where your coffee is, and place another one at work.

Read Sparkpages

When I see a Sparkpage with before, during and (or) after pictures they really help to keep me motivated. I love to read them so I can find out what helps THEM be successful!
