Put photos either on your spark page or on your fridge or somewhere you see them often - I took one at my highest weight then added as I reached personal milestones. Visual reminders keep me motivated to keep going.

I have kept a photo-journal of changes to my body for the past 9 months. It is astonishing the differences in my appearance from month to month...even when the scale doesn't move much! It's great to look back and see how far I've come!
I have 3 teenage children, so we have a busy house! To keep our schedules straight, I bought a composition book. In the beginning of each week, I paste a family schedule into the book. If things changed, we had to write it in the journal. Anything else we needed to communicate could also go in the journal!
Remember to keep journal in a central location!
