Display my "skinny" photos

I was thin once and at various times so I have those photos to remind me I was there once, I can get there again! I may not look like I did when I was 20, but those images tell me I can get close! emoticon

Look at everything in a positive way!

No matter what happens it is important for me to look at things in a different and positive way. The old "if life gives you lemons, make lemonade" attitude. If I gain weight, the gain is motivation to put in extra workout or be creative with my meals.

Motivational Mug

I have a photo travel mug that I bought at Starbucks.
I customize it with my SP wall paper or something else that reminds me to behave, grab it first thing in the morning and sip on it till bedtime.

Manufacture a Dream

Right before I fall asleep, I close my eyes and envision myself slim, trim, and engaged in an activity that I plan to be great at. Sometimes, this "daydream" will catch on, and it will continue into my actual dreams as I sleep during the night.

Power of the Streak

Keeps me focused, the little things add up. Each day I make my bed, take my vitamins, have my water and aim for a minimum of10 minutes of fitness. These tasks are small but they are the foundation of my healthier lifestyle. I'm taking time to do things for me, to help my life.

Each day is another opportunity

It doesn't matter if I mess up one day by not getting my correct activity in or if I eat something that is laden with calories, I can get right back with my plan. A slip-up doesn't mean that I have "blown it" and I can learn something from whatever did/ didn't happen. emoticon

Dont set unrealistic timelines

You dont go into a hospital saying that I will be healed of this disease by next week. All the they can do is remove the problem and create the environment for healing to begin. thats all we can do. remove the problem and create the environment through nutrition and exercise. be patient.

Having a cheering section at home. Every time I lose a pound they get more excited than I do.

I hate to exercise!

And because I do, I've found that measuring the pleasure value of something tempting against the pain value of the time it will take to work it off on the treadmill or recumbent bike (as in, "Is this really WORTH half an hour on the treadmill?") really helps me say no to most no-nos. emoticon emoticon
