I took a page from MTV's I Used to be Fat: I put up a calendar counting down the days til my husband comes home and listing the promised fitness minutes for each day. I figure if my husband can be over there doing what he does for his family and his country, living in the conditions he has to live in etc, I can do my part to get moving, shed these pounds and give him a healthy wife upon his return. I see that calendar first thing each morning and last thing each night. I am HIGHLY MOTIVATED!!!!!!!

Yesterday was a good day! I walked with my dogs when I got home then took leftovers and made a delicious dinner.

Usually, I like to be motivated by "watching" the fitness minutes on Spark People increase to 1000 minutes.
Last month though, I was sure struggling and didn't make it.
Good thing it's a new month!

I like to write it out on the calendar. Seeing it in black and white does make it more real.

I think that having them written out is helpful. I also like to look at mine at least once a day. Sometimes I keep a copy of them in my purse. emoticon

Today I wrote out my goals on my SparkPage. I did this as I am not making any progress using my current methods. I know that having it written out will motivate me to take control of myself and my lifestyle.
