Email Accountability

Every morning I send an email to a friend of mine telling her how I did the previous day: the food I ate, if I exercised, etc. This is a good way to start my day and get me on track, reminding me of my goals. It also helps me see where I failed the previous day and what areas I can do better in.

For every 1 pound loss a reward.

For every 1 pound lost i put a dollar in my savings. With every dollar I know I am closer to my goal and closer to my prize.

Reward your hard work

I pick out a none food related reward for each month I hit a goal, stay on my plan or reach a new insight. Currently maintaining my weight, I pick out a reward that keeps me focus. The reward keeps me going and something to look forward to getting. Next reward is a day spa.

keep going!

No matter what happened the day before, I remember that I have another chance tomorrow. The coolest thing about waking up in the morning (well other than being alive I guess lol) is having a brand new day full of promise and chances to succeed.

Mini-Goals, Many Milestones

I like to make almost every weigh in count by hoping to achieve chunked-down mini goals. It's fun to look forward to the "will I make it to___ this week? " feeling and it really keeps me focused and motivated to do my very best every single day.

Small Changes Yield Big Results!

It's hard to stay motivated, but accomplishing one small goal makes me feel good. While a one- or two-pound loss may not seem like a big deal (I have almost 200 pounds to lose), lots of little losses add up to big results!

Rely on your buddies

Having buddies/friends that you can rely on during the times that you struggle will only increase your weight loss because it makes you stay on track.
