For me, finishing is all about motivation. If you’re having a difficult time finishing, it’s best to look closely at why you want to finish in the first place.
If the task or project isn’t something you want to do, consider the consequences of dropping it. I’ve done this often and it’s a relief when I finally drop something I didn’t really want to do in the first place.
If you really do want to do the task/project, ask why. What do you get out of it? Do you love doing it? Is there some benefit you’ll get? Visualize that — it might get you going.
If you need more motivation, find a way to give yourself some public accountability. Set a deadline, do a blog post, tweet about finishing, or put it out there on Sparkpeople. A little positive public pressure can be a good thing.

Tips, Rules and Goals:
Weigh yourself at least two or three times a week, and write down every single thing you eat.
Sugar is terrible for you, for your waistline and for your liver — even worse than saturated fat. Avoid it, especially in beverages. To satisfy your sweet tooth, focus on fruit.
If you don’t do any exercises, start. If you do, make them more strenuous. And include some weightlifting, yoga and pushups.
The more fundamental a food item — the less it’s been processed — the better it is for you.
Don’t let others tempt or talk you out of your weight-loss program; be firm. Establish and build on connections with a support circle (SPARK PEOPLE) of like-minded others who will diet and exercise along with you.
Commit to losing 10 pounds. It’s a very reachable goal, it’s a good foundation to build on, and even 10 fewer pounds can make a difference in your health.
