One reason I want to lose weight is to resume mountaineering. So I bought a magnetic picture of Mount Rainier and put it on the frig where I see it everyday. I also put a picture of a runner with the type of body I hope to have on the inside of my gym locker. Both motivate me on a daily basis.
Against all advice, I weigh myself EVERY DAY. And I write my weight on a wall calendar. It keeps me honest and the weight coming off. But I am aware of the day-to-day fluctuations in weight that have nothing to do with fat lost or fitness gained. So when I compare weights, I look up a row to see where I was last week, rather than left to see where I was yesterday. It keeps me honest ... and motivated!
