I keep a small box of Truvia (stevia plant all natural sweetener) in my purse, and an individual packet of Truvia in my wallet. When I eat out, rather than order the sugary lemonades offered on the menu ( which are usually made by mixing lemonade syrup and water), I order a large glass of water and lemon wedges. Then I squeeze the lemon wedges and add Truvia to my water - VOILA! I have made my own healthy, served-to-taste lemonade! (and I saved money!)

I have become my own motivator. When it comes to eating I will tell myself NO I WILL NOT EAT ______ and usually I won't. I was so tempted to eat some French Fries my husband bought on a late Saturday night but instead I decided not to because it wouldn't be worth it. I also tell myself to go further on my work outs. I find my own motivation sometimes better than other people trying to motivate me.
