I like that idea. Right now I'm doing a challenge to fit in 1500 min. this month - and since I'll be out of town for 3 days of the month it's a pretty tight fit so I'm really focused on my workout time. Next month, I may very well take on that "part-time" job.
Sunshine Girl, I like your imaginary lap band, too. Both approaches are pretty creative.
For myself, since I get hives from certain foods and have learned (the hard way) to avoid them, I've mentally expanded that list - I tell myself that consuming certain foods has unpleasant physical consequences and stay away from them, too. Amazingly enough, I've not had a break out of "fat hives" in quite a while :)
