i recently posted the secret about heart360.org. i have found since then that this site can also send you text messages of your choice when you want them. as an example i find my big challenge is to not eat everything in my kitchen at night so now around 8pm i have a text sent to me reminding me to put off raiding the cabinets - it's just not worth it! it helped yesterday - we'll see if it continues

Using RememberTheMilk.com you can create "tasks" and have it text you reminders for these. Each "task" can be a motivational quote or a reminder to go outside or work out. This is great for when you're always on the go and forget about exercise until it's too late.
If stress or any other negative influence is hovering and you want to run to the kitchen, text or call your main support person not on the same premises at 30-minute -- or 15, if necessary -- intervals to say you want to overeat and that you'll wait half an hour. If you feel the urge at the end of the half hour, text again. Keep it up until the crisis passes. The support person, in turn, texts back encouragement..
