motivating the family

I found that by posting my "new get excited about it" goal reached that I am able to inspire my family members to join me. We have a group on face book for just us 6 and in 6 weeks as a group lost one entire person, 173lbs. We each inspire each other.

Water, Water, Water!

To make sure I get my water in for the day, I use a bottle that contained 8 cups, such as V8 Fusion, and fill that up every morning and keep it by my desk.

Birds of a Feather

Surround yourself with people that are like-minded. It will help you have others that can relate to you. Sparkpeople groups are a great place to start. If you see other people like you doing it, you will realize you can do it to.

I have a picture of me when I was rather large and I keep it where I can see it all day at work so I remember what I am trying to overcome

To start a project...

Make up your mind that you are going to just start the project, and someone else is going to finish it. Then after you have started, you just finish it. I play head games with myself, but it works.

Motivational Images

I made a collage featuring motivational words and pictures of inspirational celebs, clothes I want to own, and people I admire. I put it right in my living room where I can alway see it. Then when I'm watching TV and having an urge to snack, I remember exactly why I'm trying to get healthy!

Wear A Pedometer

I put on my pedometer when I put on my clothes. This makes me very aware of how much time I spend moving in the run of a day. Some days are 22 000 days and others are 11 000 but I always get 10 000 no prob! & having a cheerleader to report to at the end of the night helps too!
