Remind yourself what that extra weight felt like

Put a some heavy things in a backpack, equal to the weight you've lost and walk around with it for 30min so you remember what it felt like to carry that extra weight around.

Exercise

I am finding that the heated pool is sooo good for me. I love doing my Water Jogging, Aqua, and Swimming 6 days a week.
I also find the cold iced water with a dash of lemon is very good,I drink it constantly over 15 glasses a day! emoticon

My motivation activation

My family motivates me. I want to be here long enough to enjoy them and any grand babies I may get down the line. They motivate me to stay healthy to someday see that.

Accountability

I am motivated in knowing I have to account for every bite of food that I put in my mouth. If I cheat, I am cheating nobody but myself. I know I have to login to SparkPeople everyday to keep myself honest. If I have to skip days due to no access to the computer I will catch up when I get back to my computer.

Calendar with stickers!

emoticon Use a monthly calendar dedicated just to your health plan. I use mickey mouse stickers each time I meet a goal, write in minutes of exercise, etc. Just seeing the visual display of a whole month with all your accomplishments helps!

Daily Blogging

I blog daily, even if I don't have anything earth shattering to report. It keeps me accountable and honest and sometimes allows others to point out to me when I may need to make corrections to my plan before I slip up.

SOS Start on Sparkpeople

Before eating at night, stop on sparkpeople, check your food for the day, and check out some friends or blogs. If you have some spare calories, choose something and come back to log in food. Usually if I do this, I don't overeat and I get tired and feel fed by my spark buddies.
