If I tell myself "I can do ANYTHING for 30 seconds", it really helps me push through my workout!
I really want to come back weighing what I did when I left. better yet to be LESS. SO, I am really watching the SUGAR and that is not easy. But tonight I ate at an IHOPS with the new menu that has CALORIES listed....WOW what an eye opener, but what a help. I consumed under 400 !!
I set a mile stone whether it be time, mile number, or whatever and just before I hit that mark I change it to something further. This way I keep going but still feel good when I hit my original goal.

Set small goals--don't start out to lose 100 pounds or even 25, because if it doesn't come off as fast as you would like, chances are you will give up. Try for a 5 pound loss, and then another, etc.
I am capable of embracing hunger. When I get hungry between meals I can push away the panic. YES! Hunger means I'm losing weight. Then, I drink a glass of water.
