I don't really have a saying on the fridge. Just a list with my favorite "bad" foods and their calories. Right beside them is how many minutes on the elliptical it will take to burn it off. Is that bowl of ice cream worth an extra 30 or so minutes of hard labor? Usually the answer is no. Makes me think twice.

I put a BIG picture of myself at my fattest, looking totally blobby, and I wrote on it with bold big letters, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" It reminds me that I should be "doing" something to cure boredom instead of raiding the fridge.

My computer hic-cupped, and posted this twice! LOL! I will have to find another saying for your fridge. Oh, here's what I have on mine:

Well, it took a lot of willpower, but I finally gave up dieting!

I try to remind myself that this is not a quick fix overnight diet. This is a lifestyle change.

I also have on my fridge: When I was young, I used to go skinny I just chunky dunk!

Half of getting what you want is knowing what you have to give up to get it. -Bill Phillips

This one you really need to let sink in. Anything in life, let's say a college education may require sacrifice in other areas in your life, it's an investment not only in $$ but in time, effort, you may have to put other things on hold while you earn your degree.

The same goes, say, for someone training for a marathon. They may have to give up sleeping in late to get in their workouts, they may have to forego certain foods, etc. etc., they are willing to sacrifice certain things in their lives to gain the level of fitness to be a competitive athelete.

They know what they need to give up to get what they want, and they are willing to make that sacrifice in their lives.

SO, half of getting what you want is truly knowing and appreciating what kind of sacrifices are involved in getting what you really want. The other half, is of course, doing it.

emoticon You can do this...

Every day is an opportunity.

This one inspires me to do well by leading me to thinking about the day as an opportunity to make good choices, or to do better than I did yesterday, etc.

This hits home for me:

I will give to myself as I give to others.
I will value my health as I value the health of my loved ones.
I won't ask "Should I or Shouldn't I?" about matters of self care.
I will just do it.
I humbly accept that I must work to be the best me I can be.
I will choose to work for myself, rather than abandon myself.
I will embrace adversity as an opportunity to test my mental and physical strength.

So far I found two great pictures in magazines... one is of this woman with a giant piece of cake in her hand, totally stuffing her face, cake all over... makes me think twice!! And the other picture I found is of a hippo cartoon and on the side it says "Hungry Beast" That one I just thought was funny!! I'll scan them and send them to anyone who would like a copy!!

I like this idea - how about cribbing from Nike

"Just do it!" - right next to your preferred activity INSTEAD of eating...

I made myself a great little motivational poster to help me with my weight loss and I had so much fun doing it I'm prepping to make another for my fridge door. What phrases can you supply me with to put on my poster? I will be including "You Are What You Eat!!" Any others?
