I put any junk food that may find it's way into my house way up high in a cubbard above my fridge. This cubbard door is blocked by other things so it's just easier to ignore it then get a chair, move everything out of the way, etc. to eat the junk food.

Think you have no time to exercise? Use those minutes you spend just standing. Sometimes when there is a minute left on the timer when I am cooking something, I'll use that minute to do jumping jacks, squats, high knees, etc.
Taking advantage of those idle moments can add up to some time that you are moving.
One of my main problems is laziness. To keep myself moving every day, I constantly renew my commitment to my goal. I tell myself that this is just the beginning of my journey and I disregard any weight I've lost before. Starting each day as if it were from square one helps me stay focused and away from laziness and temptations!
