I decided yesterday that maybe I will be more motivated if I tell myself that every step I take is a fraction of a pound gone. Each step may only be a fraction, but the more steps I take, the closer I get to whole pounds gone! Time to get back to walking and watching those pounds disappear!
Cheesy, I know, but instead of telling myself that I'm hungry, I try to tell myself "I need nutrition". I can ask myself "Do I need nutrition, or am I just feeling snacky?" It kind of discounts food as a "treat" and makes me think of it more as simply a neccessity for living.
I don't have (but want!) a treadmill, so I have to get creative. Instead of walking on a treadmill while watching tv, I will sometimes walk back and forth across my living room- walking forward one way and backwards the other way to use some extra muscles.
