Stay Motivated with Visual Reminders

Surround yourself with positive thoughts. Do a vision collage that reflect your power to change your body and your life. It includes your commitment to exercise, your goal date, your vision of how you want to look, your career goals and your romantic goals.

Pedometer

From the time I get out of bed in the morning until the time I go to bed at night I wear a pedometer. Sometimes I forget to take it off when I go to bed, DH says it's so I get all the steps from sleepwalking counted. My goal is to get 10,000 steps per day. I am lost without my trusty Omron pedometer...

Go out and buy clothes in the size you WANT to be at your goal weight.

Buy a pair of pants/ dress in the size you WANT to wear at your goal weight, Hang them where you can SEE them every day.
That way you have a visual reminder of where you want to be. And it makes your goal....more REAL.

Be A Positive Influence

Always strive to be a very positive source of inspiration, motivation and encouragement. I want everyone to succeed just as much as I want success for myself. I think it's important to always be a positive influence, because you never know if the person you are influencing needs it at that moment

THINK OF FAMILY

When I feel defeated or sad, I bring up the image of yellow rose on a black field. It just jumps of the black field and reminds me that beauty and success are just a thought away.

Do SOMETNING

Even if you can't do much, you can do something. Don't use illness, depression, time, etc. as an excuse. Do what you can, and in a few weeks you will be able to do more......you will WANT to do more.

How to Handle Food Pushers

Have those people in your life that are always urging you to eat something? Between my aunts, grandmothers, and mother, many urge me to eat what they cooked. I smile and say, "Maybe later." It's not an outright no, so it doesn't hurt their feelings. But it does stop their urging.
