Sugar can cause irritability and depression. You pancreas has to workovertime so dont use sugar as your pick me up, Also remember that fried foods and high fat foods and red meat will increase depression and stress.
For every pound I lost, I put $5 in an envelope in a bureau drawer. If I gained a pound, out came the $5. I never "borrowed" from it. I only put in money when a whole pound was lost. When I reached goal I had enough to treat myself and my new body to a day at a spa!

Glee for me
Every morning at 5 am the alarm goes off with a CD from the "Glee" cast playing. What is it about 80's Hairband music that gets you going?! Kind of cheesy, but it wakes me up and gets me pumped...And it doesn't hurt that the first song is "Don't Stop Believing"!
Found some good motivation posts today to share while reading from Spark's Secrets of Success:

In my room I have a pair of jean capris hanging on the wall that I wore at my heaviest weight, which was 100lbs ago... it serves as a constant reminder of how far I've come and that I'm NEVER going back to where I was!
