How NOT to wrestle with washing and drying sheets!
Always hang your flat sheets by finding two corners and matching them together while they are still in the basket. Peg these to the line so the sheets are hung by their edges, not by their folds. To fold, unpeg half and fold it to meet the other half, then fold as desired.

Find pictures that inspire you, glue them to colorful sheets of paper and in your own words state what reaching that goal means to you. Hang them everywhere! Your bathroom mirror, the fridge, the ceiling above your bed, the wall next to your bed, in your office - and watch how excited you get!!!
I made sheets of paper with a number on each sheet. The number represents how many days left I have to reach my goal. On the bottom of each sheet is a motivating sentence. I write my daily weight and what i've eaten on each one then at the end of the day I take that sheet off and put it in the back so when I do reach my goal I can look back at each sheet and see where I started and how much has improved since. Seeing it there in black and white first thing in the morning makes a huge difference!
I have it hanging up on the wall at the end of my bed so I see it every morning.
I like to put my favorite sheet on top of the mattress pad. Then I follow it with all the other clean sheets in the house. That way, when it's time to change the sheets, I pull back the top sheets, remove the two I've been sleeping between, and toss them in the laundry! The bed is ready!
