Walk Out The Front Door

If I really don't want to go outside to walk. I bargain with myself. If I walk out the front door and still do not want to go for a walk then I can go back inside the house. Usually this is all it takes. Once outside I feel the sun or chilly weather, hear the sounds of birds or cars etc. Once out the front door I am good to go. Try it you will be amazed.

Friends are Power

Gather a few friends together for a weightloss challenge. I have joined 5 friends for a 8 week challenge. We each weigh in once a week and add $1.00 to the kitty. At the end of 8 weeks who ever has lost the greatest percentage of body weight will get the Loot. Since I joined this challenge with friends it has been a huge motivator to do well. emoticon There is power in numbers!

If I try my best 7 days in a row I reward myself with fresh flowers. I put them in a prominent place where I see them everyday. I also stop and smell them daily as another reminder of my hard work. If I didn't do so well then I do not buy the flowers for that week. Instead I leave the vase empty as a reminder to try harder. There is something about that empty vase that motivates me to do well.

You might think this is an expensive reward but most stores now carry lovely $5.00 bouquets of flowers.
