4 Sticks of Butter = 1 lb. !

You may have only lost one pound or perhaps even 1/2 a pound but when you think of it visually - 4 Sticks of Butter = 1 lb. Well, for one, that keeps me going !! Think about what it looks like or holding 4 sticks or squishing it in your hands. 4 sticks are a lot, now kiss them goodbye!

Track it!!!

Ordering, then receiving, setting up and wearing my SparkTracker this past month has really motivated me to walk when I may otherwise have talked myself right out of it!! Such a great little companion! :D

talk myself out of unhealty foods

If i am going to a fast food restaurant, i usually say to myself, Do you realy want that. Then i will go a different way as not to drive to the place. Then i congratulate myself when i do not get that item.

Give yourself a Goodie

Every time you succeed in doing something you struggle with doing (EX. exercising, drinking daily quota of water, avoiding fattening foods) give yourself a Spark Goodie and send a message telling yourself how proud you are of your accomplishment.

I keep a notebook of things that motivate me and add at least one thing to it daily.

Some pages are collages of pictures I like. Another page has inspirational quotes. I keep a gratitude list and add things I'm thankful for often. I also keep my bucket list in the notebook. There are lots of journaling activities I have done in the notebook as well. I doesn't matter what it is really; if it motivates or inspires me, it goes in the notebook. There is something about a paper journal that makes me feel good.
