the scale

remember that the number on the scale doesn't define you as a person nor does it define your efforts and success.

Reward Thy Self

Keep yourself motivated by rewarding your hard work. As I set new goals I also set up my reward for reaching that goal. The rewards were my carrot to keep me focus and moving. Goals were anything like getting my daily steps, hitting a milestone, eating my meals etc. they can be what ever you like...

Read something uplifiting

Google "Motivational Quotes" or open a book of poetry and find one about Spring or Life! I turn to Buddhist writings and find something about breaking through obstacles like Faith has to be strengthened daily: A sword in the hands of a coward is useless!--Nichiren (12th C. Buddhist reformer)

fat sacrifice


Take a tiny portion of your favorite food alloted for yourself each day and put it in the compost bin...the disposal...the dog... as a sacrifice to the health gods.Think of this as a spiritual moment where you offer what you like most to remind yourself of your great dieting achievements.

Don't be hard on yourself

Don't expect to be perfect ALL the time and give yourself some slack to go wrong - just remember to get back up again!

Make it Bigger Than Yourself!

Behind my motivation is my desire to be energized to do religious volunteer work in my community. My health needs to be an asset and not a liability. Also, one of my siblings passed. I don't want my parents to lose another child.

Make your motivation bigger than you!

If tempted type

When your hands are busy doing something else you will find that you can't hold food too. So why not post and see what others are doing
