4 Sticks of Butter = 1 lb. !

You may have only lost one pound or perhaps even 1/2 a pound but when you think of it visually - 4 Sticks of Butter = 1 lb. Well, for one, that keeps me going !! Think about what it looks like or holding 4 sticks or squishing it in your hands. 4 sticks are a lot, now kiss them goodbye!

I would stare up someone who can motivate me.

Weight loss is like love.. You can go on with someone. But it is not easy. It is like a rose that can thorn you with it thorns. There are failures and of course a success will also be there. I will be moving on in the day if I will stare someone who did motivate me to be fit and healthy. That someone is my son.

Daily Routine

EVERY DAY, except Sunday (that is my rest day),I get up, exercise (in my case walk) for at least 30 minutes, Eat breakfast, and Spark. I exercise (walk) again in the afternoon.

I keep a notebook of things that motivate me and add at least one thing to it daily.

Some pages are collages of pictures I like. Another page has inspirational quotes. I keep a gratitude list and add things I'm thankful for often. I also keep my bucket list in the notebook. There are lots of journaling activities I have done in the notebook as well. I doesn't matter what it is really; if it motivates or inspires me, it goes in the notebook. There is something about a paper journal that makes me feel good.

Give yourself a Goodie

Every time you succeed in doing something you struggle with doing (EX. exercising, drinking daily quota of water, avoiding fattening foods) give yourself a Spark Goodie and send a message telling yourself how proud you are of your accomplishment.

If i am going to a fast food restaurant, i usually say to myself, Do you realy want that. Then i will go a different way as not to drive to the place. Then i congratulate myself when i do not get that item.

You must renew your motivation daily

This quote from Zig Ziglar really spoke to me: “People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily." If you find your motivation waning, that's normal. You have to get yourself pumped up to succeed every day, just like in other areas of your life. I find that checking my goal board daily really helps.

Help others and become motivated

Whenever I struggle with my motivation, I read blogs and leave uplifting posts. I find I am rejuvinated in my own quest after spreading some cheer.
