I am still motivated for change, but the euphoria of starting fresh and beginning a new healthy lifestyle is fading. I need to make sure I keep my goals in check and don't trail off back into my previous healthy lifestyle.
What do you do to keep motivated?
These are some strategies I'm using to make sure I keep moving forward:
* I use this blog to hold myself accountable. By posting about my successes and failures I'm committing myself to keep going. The last thing I'm going to do is let my family and friends see me quit.
* My mom and my best friend Krista are amazing sounding boards. They know what I'm going through so we can bounce ideas off each other for recipes, talk about our challenges and keep each other motivated.
* I have a mental image of what I'm going to look like 60 pounds from now and she is BEAUTIFUL. I can't wait to meet her.
* Every day is a fresh start so even if I go over my calorie limit one day, the next day is a whole new opportunity to succeed.
How are you handling the day to day grind? What are you doing to keep yourself from "falling off the wagon?" I'd love to hear ideas from my friends.
