Before you can move forward you have to move away from old habits. That begins by changing your mind. Change your mind about you, the way you eat, why you eat, and when you will eat. Seperate your emotions from your goals!!!
Celebrate every minute of your journey towards your goal!
Now that I've made a commitment to losing weight, I've started to love my body more than I ever have. Even though I can't see any tangible changes yet, I know that every single minute I am moving closer to my goal, and I know that I look and feel ever-so-slightly better than I did yesterday. I'm also much less likely to stress and complain about the things I dislike about my body, because I know that I'm doing something about them! Remember: If you can change your mind, you can change anything.
To make sure I don't change my mind about working out in the morning, I don't allow myself to hit the snooze button when the alarm sounds...if I don't get up then, I'll not only miss my workout I'll also be late for work (or other activity). To make sure I don't miss my PM workouts, I change my clothes as soon as I get in the house from work...no exceptions and no excuses.
