Using my online Blog/Journal

I have found that on a day, when I a not feeling motivated, or am feeling a bit down., if I begin to write down how I am feeling, or what is bothering me, then I begin to think of the good things and writing about them, I begin to feel "sparked". I want to get up and get going. Write in your blog when things are good, so you can look back on them. But journal when you struggle also. It is all motivating!

Just say "Stop!"

I use this technique when I begin to snack on stuff that's not in my eating plan for the day. Before it gets out of hand, I say "stop" to myself. I don't know why this does the trick.

Don't allow the scale to control you!

The scale doesn't control you. You control yourself. It's ALL in the decisions you make and the direction you take. emoticon

My maintenance mindfulness mnemonic (tracking weight reminder)

Then if I gained weight, I put a rubber band on my left wrist (no, not to snap myself)
If I lost weight, I take a rubber band off my left wrist
If I am the same, I do nothing.

Don't weigh yourself after a sinful day!

Weighing yourself right after having a bad day will not reflect your true weight! So this might get you down without a good reason. Just get back on track and weigh yourself then! emoticon

How important is it?

If something is important to you, you will find a way to succeed. If it's not, you will find an excuse to not do it.
