The Motivation Jar

Every time you are done a workout, write what was so great about it on a small piece of paper (e.g. "I felt strong when I ran today"). Then fold the paper and add it to your motivation jar. When you are feeling less motivated, you can reach in and read a few papers to get you pumped up to workout again.

Changing direction, changing mindset

Sprarkcoach taught me the value of staying with it, and to take time to refresh how each day went. Tracking food choices and staying in balance. Also mixing up my exercise even if it is only 5 or 10 minutes at a time.

Keep Moving!

I like to keep moving. I put some running music on my computer and keep going! If I'm sitting, I'm doing chair exercises, but I don't sit for long and will end up marching in place to the beat of the music! It must be working as I'm down over 30 pounds since July 20th! emoticon

Use your phone's password to keep yourself motivated.

I'm going to Vegas next May and have set realistic goals regarding my weight loss with that in mind, but I'm notoriously bad about following through with things. To keep me motivated, I changed the passcode on my phone to a phrase so that every time I use my phone I'm reminded about what I'm working towards .

Training my brain to think like a thin person

I follow SP & Judith Beck's (Ph.D) book called "The Beck Diet Solution". She builds a mental strategy that works for me. She outlines responses we might make to her strategies and provides the healthy mental responses to counter our resistance. It's at the library and it's working for me. Cravings have vanished. I've talked myself through difficult eating challenges by using her techniques. I think it's great.

Never Give Up

Never give up on losing weight just because of the time it'll take to accomplish it.

The time will pass anyway.
