I keep a stack of pennies next to my water glass (started with 6, currently 7, soon to be 8). Each time I drink a glass of water, I move one penny to the other side of the glass. Once I've moved all my pennies, I've gotten my minimum water requirement for the day, without having to keep count.
This is especially motivating if you tend to be a visual person.
Keep a clear glass jar somewhere you see it all the time and put in it a penny for every 1lb of weight you lose. Seeing number of pennies in the jar growing is excellent motivation, just be sure to take them out if you gain - not wanting to remove any pennies is a great way to keep yourself on track!
