Get rid of old baggage

This could be anything from the loft full of baby items 20 some years old, or the friend who continuously puts you down. My biggest tip for motivation is replace the old that is holding you back with the new! Make friends who are active, get rid of old clothes, baggage and negativity!

Taping it Directly on Foods/Drinks

What I like to do is write down on a scrap piece of paper my reasons why I am losing weight and exercising, and tape it directly on foods/drinks that I shouldn't be having. For example, right now I have one on a 2 liter of soda. It's working like a charm. Of course, discipline takes part, too!

keep your target clear in your mind

Keep that little dress you want to wear this summer out of the wardrobe so you are frequently reminded of why you are being careful with your diet.

Giving In

It's very easy to slip into a depression and then eat too much or eat the wrong things--i.e. candy, etc. Allow yourself 1 day to do nothing but sleep and/or eat, then at night, plan three productive things to do the next day. It will help pull you out of the negative spiral.

Blogging

Blogs needn't win literary prizes. They are a way to get thoughts out of your head and/or keep track of SparkPeople progress. So dive in and share a bit.

Daily Focus

I like to start first thing in the morning with a journal entry. This gets my mind focused and motivated to keep on my plan. The quiet before the storm of the day has become so necessary to my success.
