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!

Track it!!!

Ordering, then receiving, setting up and wearing my SparkTracker this past month has really motivated me to walk when I may otherwise have talked myself right out of it!! Such a great little companion! :D

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.

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.

Success Shower

Tell yourself you only deserve to shower if you have sweat. If you value your personal hygiene you will sweat!

What it's all about

Anything new is exciting and well....."new". As in everything else, routine sets in, as does a bit of repetition - hence, we may fall off the wagon, get bogged with time shortages and maybe even get a bit bored. What happens? Well....the scale numbers begin to increase, self esteem goes out the window, justification to eat more seems appropriate and wallah..... you have a vicious circle, a yo-yo affect or self defeating attitude. ......it's a choice we must make...nothing more, nothing less

Moderation In All Things

I have learned since being on Spark People that moderation in all things has helped me reach my goals. I eat the foods I love but only eat them in moderation so that I don't deprive myself. It is working for me. Then I don't feel like I am missing anything.

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.

Be kind

Remember that Rome was not built in a day and neither will our ideal bodies. As we journey towards our goals we need to remember to be kind to ourselves. Every choice is just a little step closer to our achievement.
