I look at my Flab

Before I head down for breakfast, I will look myself just in my undies in front of the mirror. The flab on my tummy is a reminder that I shouldn't overeat. I also have photos of myself and my large tummy that I occasionally look through while eating my meals.

Setting daily goals really works!

If you want to start doing something (or stop doing something), try making it a daily goal that you track. There is something about checking it off daily that really helps you stay motivated! Good Luck!

the scale

remember that the number on the scale doesn't define you as a person nor does it define your efforts and success.

Reward Thy Self

Keep yourself motivated by rewarding your hard work. As I set new goals I also set up my reward for reaching that goal. The rewards were my carrot to keep me focus and moving. Goals were anything like getting my daily steps, hitting a milestone, eating my meals etc. they can be what ever you like...

Read something uplifiting

Google "Motivational Quotes" or open a book of poetry and find one about Spring or Life! I turn to Buddhist writings and find something about breaking through obstacles like Faith has to be strengthened daily: A sword in the hands of a coward is useless!--Nichiren (12th C. Buddhist reformer)

fat sacrifice


Take a tiny portion of your favorite food alloted for yourself each day and put it in the compost bin...the disposal...the dog... as a sacrifice to the health gods.Think of this as a spiritual moment where you offer what you like most to remind yourself of your great dieting achievements.
