Keep a Journal

Write down your successes and 'Little Victories.' Have someone take full length pictures of you and take your measurements on a regular basis. Write about how you feel when you can fit into a smaller size, or walk and extra mile.

Hunger Free Write

I always want to snack at work. Vending, snack shack, whatever. But I've found that if I sit for even 3 minutes and just write whatever comes to mind, never stopping, I get over the "hunger" for snacking faster.

Visualizing the Applause

A real reward for me even though it's all in my head is visualizing a huge crowd that includes my family & friends who are waiting for me to cross the finish line as I complete a hard race, summit a mountain, hike to the top of Pinnacle Peak with a 40 pound pack. A band is playing patriotic music

You Are Not Alone

I find the help and support the sparks people diet to be the best I have been on. I find that when I feel that I am alone that is when I do the most damage to my healthy eating plan.
