Every night I sit down with my diary to look at my next day's appointments. So, I bought stickers coloured red, amber and green, and I stick them in as a summary of my day - bad, okay, or good! At the end of the week, I flick back through and it feels great to see a week's worth of green stickers!

Decorating them wit stickers so now my daughter nd I kno two bottles meet our goal nd boys kno to drink four bottles of water..plus it doesn't seem so much this way
I use a sticker system for visual help with my program. I put a red sticker on the days that I blow it. I use a yellow sticker if it was a maintence type day (200 calories above my range). A green sticker if I stayed in my calorie range. This system helps me see how I'm doing and provides feedback when the scale doesn't say what I want to hear.
It helps me stay motivated when I'm doing well and brings me to a quick about face when I'm not.
I keep the sticker from my fresh fruit on my shirt all day! Makes me feel good to have 2 or more by the end of the day! If my fruit choice doesn't have a sticker on it, I use star stickers I keep at my desk. And if I see someone else eating fresh fruit, I give them a sticker too! Pass the awesome along.
