Like Myself

I have decided to like myself and not give up when I make bad choices. I wear something that makes me feel good and look in the mirror and see how far I have come. emoticon

Track every movement I do

I do toe touchers, wall pushes, chair lifts, stair steps, just plain moving and find a way to track it on Spark; then I can look at the end of the day and as I log what I have done, I see what I have achieved. The next day I want to do more! It's a good motivation tool for me. emoticon emoticon

Don't Give Up

Don't give up when you fall off track and be honest, really honest about portion control. I am learning this and learning that the only way to lose weight is to keep on trying and never go back to the old way of eating unhealthy and not exercising.

Setting mini goals daily

I have started setting mini goals each day and then set about achieving them. I either post them online or write on a sheet of paper so I can see them and do what I said I was going to do. It is helping to work harder! emoticon At the end of the day I post or write down that I achieved them.

Visual Calendar

To keep myself motivated and to "pat" myself on the back I give myself a sticker such as "good job", "great", etc. I put a sticker on the calendar daily for each day I have stayed on track by eating healthy meals and exercising. emoticon

Learn To Like Myself

I am working hard at liking myself. I can look in the mirror and look at a positive change I see in me instead of what I think is bad about me. I give myself pats on the back for a job well done! emoticon

Liking Myself

I try to stay positive by remembering how far I have come; how much better my health is than a year or so ago. Even if the scale doesn't show it, I can breath, I can walk, I have a better attitude and my clothes fit better! emoticon

Display my "skinny" photos

I was thin once and at various times so I have those photos to remind me I was there once, I can get there again! I may not look like I did when I was 20, but those images tell me I can get close! emoticon

Dancing

Dancing is my favorite way to "move". I have a hard time making myself do other exercises but I always like to dance! emoticon
