Birds of a Feather

Surround yourself with people that are like-minded. It will help you have others that can relate to you. Sparkpeople groups are a great place to start. If you see other people like you doing it, you will realize you can do it to.

To start a project...

Make up your mind that you are going to just start the project, and someone else is going to finish it. Then after you have started, you just finish it. I play head games with myself, but it works.

Motivational Images

I made a collage featuring motivational words and pictures of inspirational celebs, clothes I want to own, and people I admire. I put it right in my living room where I can alway see it. Then when I'm watching TV and having an urge to snack, I remember exactly why I'm trying to get healthy!

Wear A Pedometer

I put on my pedometer when I put on my clothes. This makes me very aware of how much time I spend moving in the run of a day. Some days are 22 000 days and others are 11 000 but I always get 10 000 no prob! & having a cheerleader to report to at the end of the night helps too!

Out with FRUMPY

I have done some spring cleaning and purged ALL clothes that equal FRUMPY... that way I'll never wear clothes that make me FEEL frumpy again. This helps in making me feel good about myself.
