I like putting up shorts words and phrases for small goals- you know the typical "SPRING BREAK" or "BIKINI" . Countdowns also work pretty well for me, having to rewrite how many days are left to an event reminds me that each day counts :)
Of course, when tempted my super cheesy carbs (my weakness) the phrase "Eat THAT now, hour work out later" seems to keep me at bay.
Pictures work too. Mostly of Britney on the fridge. She's not ridiculously thin and ...god i hate hollywood. But anyways she is just FIT and TONED and has two kids and looks amazing- regardless of whether you enjoy her music or not.
My Wedding. My fiance tells me everyday that he just wants to marry me, for who I am. But I want to look back on those photos and think "yeah, I worked hard to be healthy-but now I get to be with the one I love and live healthy". I'm trying to get him to be on a "diet" with me, but he like his food. Haha. We'll see :)
are setting a goal to be thin by a certain event, and that way i can visualize myself looking good in that bikini during the summer, or finishing the race, or not having to be out of breath when I walk up the stairs. Those thoughts usually keep me going and if those are failing then I think about who I'm doing it for. I know that the thing that kept me going through basic training was thinking about how proud my mom would be when I saw her on graduation day, and how far I'd come.
