The Motivation Jar

Every time you are done a workout, write what was so great about it on a small piece of paper (e.g. "I felt strong when I ran today"). Then fold the paper and add it to your motivation jar. When you are feeling less motivated, you can reach in and read a few papers to get you pumped up to workout again.

Keep Moving!

I like to keep moving. I put some running music on my computer and keep going! If I'm sitting, I'm doing chair exercises, but I don't sit for long and will end up marching in place to the beat of the music! It must be working as I'm down over 30 pounds since July 20th! emoticon

Never Give Up

Never give up on losing weight just because of the time it'll take to accomplish it.

The time will pass anyway.

Start the day off with a BANG!

Instead of the vile annyoying sound of the alarm clock buzzer , I set my ring tone to my favorite song and use that as my wake up call :) Shake my booty all the way to my morning :)

A Rewarding Week

Instead of giving myself a (non-edible) reward for pounds lost, I give myself a reward for every week of healthy habits. This helps me stay motivated going week by week, and knowing that if I keep up a healthy lifestyle, the pounds will follow.

Don't allow the scale to control you!

The scale doesn't control you. You control yourself. It's ALL in the decisions you make and the direction you take. emoticon

Get right back up and start again immediately!

Only you know dissappointed you are with yourself after a binge. After the binge, look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself you are a good person and you will start that second to get back on track. Have a dinner of steamed, fresh veggies to give you a clean, healthy feeling. Also, the binge is your body telling you you need some care so do something for yourself ...read some of the success stories on this website. Be nicer to yourself - Talk to yourself like you would your friend.
