Start a "no" streak, like no chocolate or no cookies or no candy. Take it one day at a time. Don't say I will NEVER eat a chocolate again. Just say, I am trying to see how long I can go without it. I can eat one if I want to, I simply choose not to today.
Giving up chocolate has eliminated a large number of "problem foods" and I have lost 15 pounds. Posting the number of days where I can see it all day is a huge motivation, especially when everyone at work knows what it means.

One of the ways I stay active on spark people is to use the spark streaks. Logging on to spark is one of my streaks and because I do not want to break it I have logged on just about every day. Even if I do not feel up to sparking I will log on and that gets me going.
Pick something that you need to work on a start a Spark Streak, it really does work! I started a walking streak and am now up to 85 consecutive days of walking. My streak has gotten so big there's no way I want to end it!
I share my streak on my Sparkpage, in my blog, on Facebook. This way, if I break my streak, I have to tell all of these people I broke it. Its easier for me to just take a walk!
Hah! Get your mind out of the gutter! What I mean is commit to have an exercise streak by exercising 10 min. a day for a 7 day streak (or whatever you're comfortable with). Or a 14 day streak of drinking 8 glasses of water per day. Or a 30-day streak of logging your food. C'mon, lets STREAK!!
