You are worth it!

You need to believe that you are worth it. Too many time we think that we are not worth the effort or we are destined to be this way. But we are worth it and we can do it!!

Recent and earlier pictures of myself

The vacation picture of me as heavy is posted up on my bedroom mirror where I can see it everyday. Next to it is a picture of me the last time I was thinner. While I will never look quite that young again (and I do not look my age), I can be that thin again. Those are my visuals to keep going.

Office Goodies

When people bring in goodies like cookies to the office, I quickly grab a notepad and write down 10 reasons why I shouldn't have those cookies, etc...; it can be anything from wanting to wear a special outfit, to feeling yucky after I do eat those things. Then, those goodies have no appeal.

Splurge

If it's going to help motivate you to be healthy, go ahead and shell out a little more $ or take a little more time- if it's the workout shoes, pre-portioning snacks, a schnazzy water bottle or a crazy kitchen gadget, if it will excite you or make things easier, it's worth looking the other way.

Setting mini goals daily

I have started setting mini goals each day and then set about achieving them. I either post them online or write on a sheet of paper so I can see them and do what I said I was going to do. It is helping to work harder!At the end of the day I post or write down that I achieved them.
