Visualize where you want to be in a year

Part of not getting down and staying positive is your mindset.
By seeing yourself in the future in a positive light, you can put your plan into action. PLAN ON: being healthy and being OK with ups & downs. Instead of setting goal for a certain event (like 40 pounds in 2 months), concentrate your efforts on feeling good for that event instead. By creating a healthy lifestyle for yourself, you might not just feel good but look good to!

A special piece of clothing

I have a special piece of clothing (a bridesmaid dress from my younger sister's wedding I wore last year) that I use to gauge whether I need to really get back on the wagon or not.

Repetitious eating

Knowing what you are going to eat day to day really helps. I have found that my breakfasts, snacks & lunches tend to be the same variation of a few good-old stand-bys, within a certain caloric/healthful range - and at the same time during each day. It also made it easier to make tracking easier by plugging in those stand-by meals into the "group section" of the nutrition tracker. One click tracking at it's finest!

Drink room temperature water

Having room temperature water makes it easier to chug-a-lug and get those 8 glasses in!

Portion Control Check

Once in a while, I break out the good old measuring cups and the food scale to do a check of how my portions are weighing up to what I THINK I'm actually doing. It's surprising how some things measure up! Combat portion distortion by doing this once in a while just to keep it real!
