When I run on the trail behind my house, I often see other runners heading in the opposite direction. I've started to give them "high five". It's motivating to me, and most of them smile at me and seem to pick up their own pace as well.

I think it is important to take pride in what you've accomplished toward your goal(s). Look at the big picture every day, and be proud of your work. Even if a pound or two is back on the scale, the big picture is that you've been working hard, for months maybe. Dedication to your goal through all the ups and downs is something to be proud of. Give yourself a high-five for trying another day!

236When you have a scale victory, CELEBRATE!!! I'm weighing folks in for Weight Watchers right now. What an awesome job! When they have a great weigh in, I jump up, high-five them and we do a little happy dance right there at the scale. Share your victory with someone else and have a little happy dance party! You've done a great thing when the scale moves down! Be sure that your head knows how proud you are that it and your body stayed on track this week! 192
