I know this seems a little juvenile but I've seen it as a good motivator for my patients that are stuck in the hospital on bedrest for a long period of time. Make a paper chain of the pounds you want to lose....as you lose a pound..remove a chain and you can see you chain getting shorter and you getting closer to your goal!104
Above all things, you must love yourself regardless of where you are in your life goals. EVERYTHING in life happens for a reason. The reason is we are ALL works in progress. Of the philosophies I live by is this: Every person and every situation (good/bad) is a link in our golden chain of good.
