One Day At A Time

Don't stress out about what I need to do or should do for the week, month, or year. I take it one day at a time. Even if I miss the mark today, as long as GOD blesses me to see another day, I have a chance to get it right. No condemnation from anyone (including self). Miss it, own it, do better.

Not "Willpower"... WANT-power!!!

I am always asked how I have the willpower to not eat the "free chips" @ our fav restaurant, or pass on the desserts during work potlucks. It's not "willpower"... it"s WANTpower! I "want" to lose a lb. or 2 more than eating those extra calories... and I know the weight loss will mean more to me!

Incentives

Every time I feel like I am about to give up I give myself a little something. Like today I thought I was going to eat a piece of pizza but I told myself no and for that I get to go to the pool hall tonight for an hour or two.

Make mini goals and post 'em!

You know what you want to do. What are your ultimate goals? How are you going to get there? Sometimes they seem monumental. Set mini-goals. Weekly, monthly, or longer, and post them. Write them out in a blog, journal, or on paper and POST IT. Be accountable, check them off and be proud! You did it!!
