OK--Sticky notes. I use them and I find that they're useful (although, like you said, the other people in my house sometimes chuckle).
*Positive motivational quotes are great (for anybody in the house) these are all over the internet. You can find which work for you. Great places to put these include the mirror that you see first thing in the morning, your shoes for work, your sock drawer...
* Along those lines, I've found that "Just Begin" are two very powerful words. If I don't feel like a workout--just begin (Often I find the motivation to continue along the way.) When those 8 glasses of water seem monumental--Just Begin.
* I have various notes that I sometimes post on my cabinets. They help keep me from certain foods if it's not the right time (let's say I've already "spent" my calories). These notes come and go regularly. The same could be used on a fridge or a particular container on the fridge.
* I once heard Jillian Michaels say "What do you want?!?" on the Biggest Loser to one of the contestants. The point was that choices mean that you're saying yes to one thing and saying no to another. I have that quote on my cooking-pot cabinet door. That one stays put.
These are just a couple ways I've used notes to myself. I hope you get lots of other ideas!
