3) What are you doing to encourage yourself and keep on track?

This is going to be brief, because I am traveling on business.

Lets see. I have a massive sticker collection. It hasn't really worked before, but if I put a dorky chart on the refrigerator where I can put stickers when I stay within my calorie range, that is one way. Maybe the other times didn't work because I didn't have them displayed somewhere I could see it everyday.

I already have my food tracker public.

I can use the "Daily Pledge" thread in the Starfishies.

Amy, I think of you everytime I hear that song, too. It's usually my reminder to call or text you! I love you, sis!

    Maybe this is obvious, but you can also play games like enjoying the array of colors on your plate & counting how many there are--even taking photos of them!

Letting yourself watch a favorite show only IF you've stayed in range that day--?

I hope your business trip is going great, with no untoward comments about your wardrobe! You are emoticon !

    Visible stickers are a great idea! I truly understand the challenges of keeping at it while traveling. I have a saying that home is where we go to do laundry and repack the suitcase. But I'm learning that healthy living has to apply rather we're at home or traveling. We just have to meet the challenges!

    I love stickers too! I use them on my calendar to keep track of workouts, along with the SP tracker. Great tactic!

    Go for it. Anything that might help. It's visual, and we will always be kids at heart. emoticon
