Use reminders to stay motivated

I set my alarm on my cell phone for the time I eat breakfast , lunch and at 7:15 PM. My alarm plays a melody and I stop and think about the meal I will be eating. I pause and remember not to overeat or eat too fast. The 7:15 alarm reminds me to stop eating for the day.

I am....

I use the "I am" method to motivate myself with my goals and to boost my confidence. A couple of my favorites are I AM sexy, tiny, toned, or anything else you can fill in the blank with. I also tell myself that I am my goal weight. Have fun with it!

Scale not the only way to measure SUCCESS!

Body measurements, being consistant, walking further, exercising longer, drinking 8 glasses of water a day, etc. are all ways I keep myself motivated when that scale isnt budging.

remembering why

I think it is key to remember why we are exercising. Our first priority should be because we are worth the effort. However, other reasons may exist like: being a good role model for our children, breaking generational curses of obesity, etc.

BELIEVE in YOURSELF and your ATTAINABLE GOAL!

When I joined Sparkpeople, I saw the possibilities of losing weight because of the ACCESS to the CALORIE COUNTER[Nutrition Tracker] and all the SUCCESS stories!!! I was NOT going to have to figure out every calorie by myself nor was I going to have to do this JOURNEY ALONE!! For the first time...
