People where I work bring in LOTS of really fattening junk food almost every day. They leave the items in the kitchen. If I am tempted by what I see, I just mentally picture roaches crawling on the food and I no longer want it. Gross but effective.

I used the Borax I told you all about. I also found that roaches are attracted to beer. Open a bottle of beer and divide it among a few containers. Leave it in the affected area a couple of days. The roaches love it. Coupled with the borax the roaches are gone with no chemicals!!18
Seriously, clean the area--even under things, spread the borax-or boric acid--and then leave out the beer. You will see a steady decrease in the roaches. Continue for a few weeks after you see the last of them to make sure you get all the babies.
Take a front, side & back picture once a week. Try & stay in the same pose & place but change your clothes around! Name each photo with week & weight.
Save pictures in a folder on your desktop, upload to Spark People or you can even use a picture editor to combine all three pictures side by side & set the current picture as your profile picture on Spark People or set as desktop wallpaper!
The pictures allow you to see your progress in toning & weight loss instead of relying on the scale!
This works better than weekly weigh-ins because you can see the results of your hard work!
Have you ever been scheduled for a family portrait and had to cancel? If you forget to take your weekly picture, you will feel the same way.
