Every morning before my feet hit the floor, I make it a point to tell myself that I can do anything. I have the ability to say no to anything. That noone makes my choices for me. I put my feet on the floor and start my day. I make it a point not to think of dinner until I have had my breakfast. That way I do not overplan the meal.
I do a morning weight check on the scale which is placed in front of a full length mirror. This way I see the progress two fold. Sometimes it is hard to look at myself but I do notice little changes to my body.
