Humor

I use humor for everything. Since I'm not coordinated, I make jokes about it as I am working out. Laughter burns calories too! I don't worry about how I look, and just keep going.

Don't focus on the numbers!

Set goals that don't focus on the scale or your clothing size. Sign up for a race or other event that is challenging but doable with proper training. Then train for it. The results are amazing!

Take a Look

When I am feeling a lack of motivation I look at my 'pre-spark' pictures and then at the road bike I'm gonna buy myself once I make it to Onderland. Works like a charm.

MOTIVATION IN YOUR FOOD JOUNAL

Note your good choices like "I did not eat all of my lunch, which I always do." or "I ate this and not that" or " I passed on the dounut when asked.". Give yourself positive feed back. Make it a game, see what you can do each day.

Pictures are a Great Motivator!

Take pictures of yourself along your weight loss journey. You'll be able to see the little changes week by week or month by month and you will be so proud of yourself.

Stay Focused

I make sure to have diet or fitness reading materials at my fingertips to read during downtime or breaks. This helps with motivation, positive attitude, and problem resolution. Frequently these concepts translate to so many other areas of my life.

Audio Books

I listen to audio books while working out. It makes me workout longer because I want to get to that next chapter. Then I have certain books I only listen to while at the gym so it gives me the motivation to go workout because I want to finish that book. emoticon

Find a Daily Cheerleader

Check in with someone every day to report progress, stalls, etc. Find someone completely supportive who will cheer you on! I found my cheerleader in a close coworker who I interact with all day long. She knows every part-pound and inch I've lost!
