The secret for loosing weight and keeping with it for me is motivational posters. I will read the motivational quotes and when I am feeling low I will go to pinterest and look up fitness motivation or weight loss. The pictures and words lift me up and give me the determination to succeed. I feel seeing others who have gone the distance give me the push I need. I know I can do it to and so can you.
The visual of other people's success motivates me!!!!!!!!! 9306381386
I keep a stack of pennies next to my water glass (started with 6, currently 7, soon to be 8). Each time I drink a glass of water, I move one penny to the other side of the glass. Once I've moved all my pennies, I've gotten my minimum water requirement for the day, without having to keep count.
This is especially motivating if you tend to be a visual person.
