Keep it up

Whenever I'm tired working out, I tell myself "just five more minutes, I can do five more minutes". Pretty soon I'vre reached my 30 minute workout and feel vindicated!

Passwords as daily reminder/motiva
tion

I have to change my computer login password at work quite frequently, and it must contain a combination of letters and numbers and upper and lower case. The other day, I thought why don't I change it to my goal weight along with the words "for me" so that I have to enter it every day.

The things around me

My motivation to get in shape and be healthier is 1) my dog who always looks at me with big brown eyes just so i can play with her and 2) the thought of having children. How can i teach them to be healthy and have a healthy start if i'm not healthy?

My Biggest Weight Loss Secret

My biggest secret is that it really doesn't take motivation. As long as you do it, it really doesn't matter if you gripe or complain or display a bad attitude. I told my daughter I was too old and it wouldn't work. She asked me to try. I did. Once I had a little success, I was hooked. It worked.
