Instead of posting on refrigerator a 'before you gained all those pounds ago' photo, post a photo of yourself now, to encourage you not to open the refrig or cabinet just to munch. Then every month same date, post a 'new photo' next to the heavier one. Seeing the result on refrig will motivate you instead of grieving for your skinny self all those years ago.

If you make your own yogurt, you probably spend a pretty piece of change on a yogurt starter that has to be replenished pretty quickly. Well you can make your own yogurt starter that will last at least a year from chili pepper stems.
I saw this photo of a billboard in a city several months ago. It says "Yesterday You Said Tomorrow". It has been complete motivation to all those times I've procrastinated or have felt too tired to do something. Each time you say it, you're holding yourself to your own word. I have this photo on my desktop screen and at the refrigerator at home. I believe it would fit as a nice background or lock screen photo on your cell phone as well.
