Being negative starts to become a habit. We pick at ourselves so much that we forget how far we have come and our good traits. I like to write on my mirror with a white board marker to remind me of the good things, although lip liner works too. :) Don't worry; it comes off easy.
Examples: "Stop resisting positive change." "I have pretty eyes." "The double chin is going down." "You look better when you are happy." And a size list that I cross off as I go down so I can see where I started, reminding me that I am smaller, even if I don't see it all the time.

I don't weigh myself anymore. In the past it either made me feel so happy that I gave up because I felt I didn't need to be careful anymore or gave up because I thought it was useless. I can't deal with the numbers anymore so I just keep eating healthy and exercising.
I look in the mirror and know I am getting there.
Knowing your calorie enemy before consuming is an easy trick.
I've found that if i put in my meals before even preparing them, I can make adjustments accordingly if I'm a little high on the fat side, or low on protien. It's helped me immensley. And with SP's MOBILE application, I have no excuse not to do it all the time.
