Make it Bigger Than Yourself!

Behind my motivation is my desire to be energized to do religious volunteer work in my community. My health needs to be an asset and not a liability. Also, one of my siblings passed. I don't want my parents to lose another child.

Make your motivation bigger than you!

If tempted type

When your hands are busy doing something else you will find that you can't hold food too. So why not post and see what others are doing

Works best for me

What works great for me, especially when trying to talk myself into working out, is to do either 3 (20) minute workouts or 2 (30) minute workouts (depending on my workout of the day) It also keeps my energy high throughout the day!

A little question that does great things!

I've put one simple question on my cupboards and fridge : Are you really hungry? It's very efficient for eliminating careless snacking and to promote conscious eating... Plus, it's a great conversation starter for guests that come over!

A little friendly competition

Cheating would be SO easy at work - they put sodas in the fridge as well as water and they're both free to employees. So, to curb that temptation, one of the other ladies and I have a little competition to see who drinks the most water during the workday.

Get Support - No Matter How Small

My husband is happy with his current weight but has started drinking water with me instead of his usual soda. It's a little thing but it helps a lot.

dont keep this change to yourself

We are stronger in a group.
I know I walk furter than I think I can when I go with someone else. I won't call uncle at the first twinge when I am not alone.
Its better for me and my lazy dog when we walk and play with others where others can see us and we can see them - we don't dawdle as oft...

Make your Goal known

I let a few good friends know what my goal for weight loss and exercise was. These friends help me stay on track, motivate me and share experiences so I stay positive and motivated. We've also made some joint goals and rewards which keeps us all motivated.

Walk, Run or Cycle

For every mile I put $.50 in a can.
Have not decided what I will do with it. But I'm sure it will be fun.
