If you don't wanna get what you've always got, do something different! For me, it involved thinking small. * Use smaller plates and bowls.
* Get smaller clothes.
* Order smaller portions in restaurants.
* Exercise in small bursts throughout the day.
* Small rewards for small victories!
Setting small goals and celebrating them has made a huge transformation in my life. And shaking my head no when restaurants ask me if I want a large has helped in more ways than one. If I don't want to be LARGE, don't eat large. Now I just smile sweetly and say: ""No thanks, I'm a small !"

When am doing strength training, in my mind's eye I split my reps into a three-quarter. E.g. By the time I get to rep 9 in a 12 reps exercise, I say to myself 'you have just 3 left'. Also when I am using the clock I think small by looking at the seconds hand and I say to myself 'it will soon roll over to 60'. By this I keep myself going.
