List of Reasons

Make a small list of reasons why you want to lose weight and are willing to work hard toward that goal. Carry these reasons on a small piece of paper and bring with you where you can whip it out and read it at times when you need to remind yourself -like making a tough food choice.

Achieveable

When beginning anything daunting, I always tell myself, this was designed to be done. And done well. And there's absolutely no reason why you can't succeed on this. Just move forward and do your best. It's achievable! Makes life a lot less intimidating.

Send motivating messages to yourself on spark appt calendar

I send messages to myself such as "Great job on tracking calories this week" or "I hope you walked yesterday, if so you go girl!, etc... On spark calendar put your message in appointments and it will be sent to you on the day you choose.

TAKE IT BACK TO CHILDHOOD

I have a calendar that hangs where I can always see it (one at home & one at work) & I give myself a sticker for each day that I stick to my fitness streak. It sounds silly but it's great to see the colorful stickers & it makes me not want to see any blank days! There's a reason teachers use this!

Be Patient--All good things are worth waiting for!

It is true--if it is worth having or doing, it is worth waiting for. We have to plan and organize vacations, weight losses, a healthy lifestyle, summer break...It is important to take your time and do these things well.
