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.

'Public' Accountability

A little bit of public accountability can work wonders in staying on track. Put a chart up on your fridge where everyone can see it, and tick off each day you work out (or stay in your calorie range, or whatever). The 'embarassment' of skipping can actually be a powerful motivator.

"If you change what you believe...it changes what you can achieve."

I try to remember this saying that I heard somewhere along this journey...Also I try and remember to "Make the next right choice" especially after I've not made a good choice. I've discovered It's all about mind over matter. And I've learned the more I log into Spark People the more I stay focused

Mind set

Keeping a positive mental attitude is more than half the battle. I firmly believe that if you REALLY believe that you can accomplish, it you can!

Get Excercise

I have been doing alot of walking with my husband. It helps me to motivate for 3 or 4 mile walk if it's going to end with a yummy healthy meal or even a low-calorie beer :) We have actually tried some new restaurants around town that we never would have picked before. And we walked of course!

Make sure you have fun exercising or you won't stick with it. A varied exercise routine that you look forward to is important!
