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.

Reminding Yourself of Why You're Doing This

We all mess up, but we can limit our mistakes if we remind ourselves of why we're doing this. I find it helpful to post my goals in places that I will see them constantly. For example, I have them set in a really pretty frame on my computer desk, I laminated them and use it as a bookmark, and I even have them written down on an index card that I carry in my wallet. It makes it a lot harder to spend money on junk food when I open my wallet to pay and see my goals staring me right back in the face.

Never cheat again

I have found a new way to eat bad items. I now PLAN to eat a craving. The rule is you must decide to it at least one day prior and then plan for it.
When I do this, I don't eat all that was intended to eat. In fact because I am not cheating I really taste the foods.
Once I plan an begin to eat the item, I then find myself thinking "this is not as good as I thought it would be." Usually the remainder of the item is pitched.. it just doesn't seem worth it. emoticon
