There Are No Boogymen Making You Do It

This one changed my life:

There is no such thing as "I don't know why I keep eating these cupcakes" or "I can't make myself exercise and I don't know why!"

Every choice I make is MY choice, good or bad. If I have a cupcake, I own up to it because it's ME doing it, not some nebulous boogyman.

Beauty

I try and remember how nice it felt to slip into a pair of jeans and feel sexy. I remember how it used to feel so I make going down into the next size jeans my goal vs getting so hung up on whats on the scales. I alo have started taking care of myself. Buy some new makeup, get some highlights.

Tell the world!

I've enlisted the help of everyone I know - family, friends, work mates and total strangers - to motivate me in my weight loss journey. I used my job in the beginning to get motivated to work out, with 5 extra minutes per day for every 105% QA I listened to. I've lost 75 pounds with their help!

Put Your Shoes On

If I find I really don't want to go to the gym, I'll just say, "Fine, I won't go. But I'll put my gym shoes on." Once I have my gym shoes on, somehow I'm out the door. If you can't bring yourself to start working out, just try to take one small step in that direction. The first step is the hardest!

Login

Sometimes when I get off track I find myself avoiding Sparkpeople altogether. My secret is I tell myself I'll just log in. Once I log in I find myself getting into reading articles and stories and before I know it I am motivated to track. Soon after I am back to wanting to exercise. All from a login

Fight the negative, remember the positive

When I start feeling discouraged about my progress, I fight back by going through the list of things I have already achieved on this journey. By the time I'm done, I feel much better and ready to tackle the next hurdle in my way!

Weight Loss Blues

If I feel cruddy about lack of weight loss, I remember how far I have come by picking up something that weighs the same amount as my loss. The gallon of milk reminds me actually how heavy five pounds can be and so on. emoticon

Buddy Up

emoticon Having a partner to exercise, create meals, and to bounce my successes and failures off, helps me stay positive even when things are not going as I would like them. Even a long distance partner is good because you can SKYPE one another. I love that I have my sister as my partner.
