I think that it helps to get into the habit of reading motivational quotes and stories daily, almost as integral as exercise and eating right, because it keeps your mind in the right place. It helps to reach for those thoughts when you feel down, and It reminds me of the quote: "If you feel like quitting, remind yourself why you started."

The secret to keeping weight off, is in our decision to lose weight in the first place. I find I have to get in the right mindset to lose weight. That mindset is normally "That's it I've had enough, its time to do something for me". Then something clicks, I think its the pain of carry weight as well as the pleasure of reaching my new goal, that spurs me on. The main thing is that once I get to "that's enough" I know my mindset and my motivation are set for success
I know the only way to get improved results in life is by trying something new and different from the old standard behavior. By changing your mindset, you can accomplish this, embrace a new attitude, it can be uplifting. If you continue to do the same thing and have always done something a certain way...you will always get the same results. Try something different, it can be refreshing and revitalizing!
