I wrote a list of all the reasons I want to lose this weight. It contains "big" reasons - like my upcoming wedding, getting off medication, etc. and "small" reasons - like being able to easily pick something up off the floor.
Whenever I feel my motivation waning, or the urge to eat a cookie, I read over this list several times. It reminds me of why I'm doing this, and that my reasons are so much more important and meaningful than eating a cookie or skipping a workout.
