Losing an amount of weight can seem really daunting - I have 50lbs to lose and thinking of it like that it is such a big number. So to make it easier I make myself mini goals. Reaching the next decade, stone (I am from the UK). My next mini goal is that I have 3lbs to go and I will be half way there! Focusing on a smaller amount of weight to lose seems more do-able and inspires me to move onto the next mini goal.
When struggling to complete a workout, I break it down into small chunks...so for instance when running I tell myself I will get through the next 2 1/2 minutes or even a minute before moving onto the next few minutes. I find that I can push myself that bit further as 2 mins doesn't seem as daunting as 20.
