Pictures

Document your whole journey in pictures. Put a picture of your current/formal self on the fridge so you look at it everytime you open it. Everyweek take a new side/front picture and watch the weight come off in pictures! Its great motivation!

Dogs are great walking buddies!!!

I have four dogs so I am NOT allowed to sit on the couch without getting their walks in. This is a great way to keep me motivated because some days I simply would not get up and exercise if I didn't have to. Looking at their longing faces makes me want to get up and get out there!!!!

Personal Time

Rather than think of exercise as one of those extra things you have to do, think of scheduling it as "Me time." Forget about all that stress, and just enjoy your work out. Once you do, you'll find yourself missing that time for yourself. emoticon

Find a Group!

Working out with a friend or group of people is motivating, and definitely keeps me working harder and longer than I would on my own.

A Clean White Page

Life is like a massive stack of white paper. Each day we fill it with activity and choices and decisions. Some days we end the day on a high, with everything tidy. Others we find a mess on the page when day is done. BUT each morning is a NEW clean white page to fill without any thought to the past.

The good old kitchen timer!

I've used my kitchen timer for years to fool myself into getting started. I set it for one minute, five minutes, etc. and tell myself that I only have to commit myself to whatever it is (exercise, etc.) till the timer rings. I always keep going once I get started!

Using time wisely

Check in everyday, read all you can, track your meals, share your experiences and don't spend all day on the computer.
