The Double-Take

There's a good number of friends I run into only every few weeks or so. Some haven't seen me since last fall--which was 35 pounds ago. I live for that double-take.

I know 35 is a big number, but I don't see it, since I see me every day. They see it. And boy does it feel good when they do!

Mini-Goals Really Work!

Mini-Goals really work! Set a few small mini-goals and see how good you feel when you complete them. Each small goal builds into something bigger and bigger and before you know it you're succeeding at those bigger goals!

Create Your Own Heart Pumping Music Playlist

Go through all the songs you have on your computer and pick out ones that make you want to lipsync and dance around the room (since they're so much fun). Make a playlist containing those songs and play those while you workout. Don't stop there, keep that list up to date so you don't get bored.

Look for Victory One Day at a Time

I can't change yesterday, and tomorrow isn't promised, but I can get it right today. I do remember yesterday's victories to build on those, but I avoid looking down the road-it's too far. Today is easy, I can do today right. Get enough today's right and you reach your goal!

Use the buddy system

You CAN do it! If you didn't think you could, why did you join SP in the first place? Find someone(s) who can help you stay motivated when you are losing hope...whenever I start to get down on myself I remember there are people on this site who lost 100+ pounds...surely I can lose 50!

Stay in calorie range.

Put a dollar in a jar for every day that you stay within your calorie range. Then use the money to buy new clothes or sports equipment that will help you to further your journey. emoticon emoticon

Music, Music, Music

Find the perfect song, the one that makes you smile when you are in the car and sing it at the top of your lungs. By the end of the song, you are energized and feel great. You can take on anything with a song in your heart!
