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.

Engaging my pocketbook and friends in the goal

I need a goal to work for. I pick a race that I'm going to run and I PAY FOR IT as soon as possible. If I'm paying $50-$75 to run a half marathon, it is a constant motivator. I HATE to lose/waste money! I also tell my friends. If I tell them, I wont to go back and say I didn't make it.

Banish Black & White Thinking!!

I am the queen of 'failed diets' and since I joined SP I have found that getting rid of the all or nothing/black and white thinking has been one of my biggest helps. Its all about lifestyle not all or nothing!

Setting clothes out the night before

If I set my workout clothes out at night, I know in the morning I won't have to dig through my closet. Everything will be ready to go, and it motivates me to get up and do my workout!
