Be kind

Remember that Rome was not built in a day and neither will our ideal bodies. As we journey towards our goals we need to remember to be kind to ourselves. Every choice is just a little step closer to our achievement.

Don't weigh yourself after a sinful day!

Weighing yourself right after having a bad day will not reflect your true weight! So this might get you down without a good reason. Just get back on track and weigh yourself then! emoticon

Reading or Watching the News When Exercising

When I think about skipping my gym workout on the way home from work (thinking "I'm too tired"), I convince myself to go anyway by telling myself I will just "read my kindle" or watch the news at the gym, and workout on the treadmill or stair stepper. If I have these distractions, the time goes by quicker, and I often end up staying a little longer, just to finish the chapter or the show.

Picture TIME!

I take pictures of my progress on a weekly basis. Sometimes looking back on my photos is just what I need to keep moving in the right direction! emoticon

Don't let a Re-lapse turn into a Col-lapse

Realizing that mistakes are a part of this journey, not the end of it, has made a huge difference in how I view those bumps in the road. One step away doesn't doom me if I acknowledge the step and move back towards my goal.

Love yourself

Always try to love what you see in the mirror, its better seeing what you can change than seeing something you feel you cant fix. :D emoticon

Frequent landmarks to celebrate

Setting frequent mini-landmarks to celebrate keeps me moving steadily forward -- the next one never seems very far away: each 5 lbs lost, each 5% lost, each 0 or 5 passed on the scale, etc.
