Sticker Shock Or Encouragement

55

Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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.

MORE INFORMATION:
It helps me stay motivated when I'm doing well and brings me to a quick about face when I'm not.

    WOW! This is a great secret! It gave me the idea to have stickers to represent serving's of each food group, & place one on my food journal as I eat one. I'm a visual person, & think this might help me. Thank-you! emoticon
