Surely you've heard the saying "We are a product of our environment." It's true, and it can work in your favor. The key is to rig your surroundings for success. Start by removing any junk food or other temptations from your kitchen. You can't eat what's not there. As you ditch negative items, replace them with healthful ones: Out with the potato chips and candy; in with the popcorn and walnuts. Post pictures that inspire you-a bowl full of ripe fruit, a lush park that says "Let's go running!"-on your computer, or put inspirational quotes on the sun visor of your car. Wherever you look, you'll have signposts and resources that reinforce good-for-you behavior.
