Focus on non-weightloss goals

When the scale refuses to move (as it sometimes will), change your focus from your weightloss goal to non-weightloss goals such as exercising x days a week, drinking x glasses of water a day etc. This is where your spark streaks come in handy. The pounds will come off as a side effect.

Think About Others

When I don't feel like working out, I try to think about other SP members who have lost alot of weight. I imagine them working out at that precise moment and then I decide to 'join' them. Works for me everytime.

Focus on quality of life

It is easier to stick to your exercises when you focus more on overall well being rather than on weight loss. Have you noticed how easy it is to skip a workout the day after your weigh-in, especially if the number on the scale is not very pleasant?

Walk in place

Do you find it hard to get your 10,000+ steps a day? Well, learn to walk in place every chance you get. You can do this when talking on the phone, watching tv, or just anytime you feel like it. Before you know it, you'll be recording more steps on your pedo than you've ever seen before.

Be firm!

When you feel like skipping a workout and give excuses like being tired, be firm with yourself. Tell your lazy side to get over it! Works for me all the time. It's like speaking to a child, be firm and clear.
