I have to change my computer login password at work quite frequently, and it must contain a combination of letters and numbers and upper and lower case. The other day, I thought why don't I change it to my goal weight along with the words "for me" so that I have to enter it every day.
So, maybe this could work for some of you... change your computer passwords to a motivational phrase or one of your goals. I.e. - Maybe next I'll do Halfin2010 since I want to run a half marathon this year. A daily reminder of what you are striving for can be very helpful.

Choose a password that is a positive reminder of what you are accomplishing. Although it is not something that you will share or others will see, it is a phrase you probably type every day or several times a day. Might as well make yourself feel good! Since mixing numbers and letters is a good formula for a password, consider including your goal weight or waist measurement. Consider something like: greatat128, healthy27, or 155skinny.
