Think Of The Ones You Love

If you aren't feeling motivated to exercise or eat your vegetables, think about the people that you love. Staying healthy means you'll be around longer to spend time with them! Taking care of yourself is a gift you give to your loved ones every day.

I Like.....

I like smiling to myself. At first it feels a little silly, and then I feel the happiness in my soul.

Positive thoughts!

One of my friends told me one time "nothing tastes as good as thin feels." I try and think of that when wanting to fall off the wagon and it helps. We can do this!

Have regular treats

Not only for weight loss, but for sticking to your regime.

At the begining of the week, pick a treat for the end of the week. Anything that you consider a treat will do- even if it is a small piece of your favourite 'no go' food.

Keep some jeans...

Instead of getting a new pair of jeans which are still too tight to wear and make them your goal, keep a pair of your old jeans! It is so much nicer and more motivating to see how big those have become instead of seeing that you still don't fit into the new ones.

My Mom

Growing up my Mom never exercise, I use that as my motivation too exercise. Because I see what she is going through now because of her lack of exercise.

When I don't feel like exercising--I exercise because I can pull a reward card out of my special gift bag

On those days when I honestly don't feel like exercising, I motivate myself by pulling a reward card out of the special gift bag AFTER I have done my exercising. It keeps me going and I know there are some neat little things I can treat myself to.

Most Important Person

This journey is about the most important person in your life - you. If you don't care for yourself, you can't care for anyone else. Love for others begins with loving yourself.
