I have found that letting others know (in life, on Facebook, etc.) has helped me stay motivated. People know I am trying to lose weight so I'm not going to want to go back on my goal! They also congratulate me which is a great reward when I post that I have lost more weight or can't find clothing that fits! It's a motivating and rewarding way to keep at my goal of losing this weight for good!

It always great to set goals. First write it down, when you put pen to paper it does something to your brain and it becomes more real. Also it's very important to let others know what your goals are so that you have someone to be accountable to other then yourself.
getting enough sleep the night before,6 to 8 hrs, i know there may not be a chance later to get a nap in.
when I get 4 or 5 hrs i get and walk the house, get a drink of water or milk, let others know you want some time during the day to nap, take that np when the kids take theirs, when others take their naps as well (grandparents, parents)
Now is the time I must put my big girl undies on and just do this. I can't act like a kid who wants every poor food choice out there. That attitude will not get me to a healthier place. I'm not a kid. I'm a grown up who has all the information and tools I need to make this happen. It's time I start acting like it.
Eating 5-6 meals a day; getting adequate sleep, eating veggies and fruits daily and healthy food choices at every meal and snack, working out 4-6 days a week, staying organize, shopping adequately, journaling, let others know what I working towards and staying busy on SparkPeople!
