1.Stop thinking about it and do it. Are you a “talker” or a “doer”? Think about someone who always talks about what he / she is going to do, but never does. Do you want that to be you?
2.A promised vacation or gift for when you reach your goal weight. Make this a unique, special and expensive celebration –something you have wanted for a long, long time.
3.Imagine what it would feel like if you stuck to your weight loss plan for one week and then got on the scale.
4.Go out for a brisk walk today or this evening and identify how that makes you feel. More motivated, energetic and inspired maybe?
5.Clean out your kitchen closet and the fridge. Get rid of all the foods that have been sabotaging your success and take note of what this does to your mood.
6.Go and listen to a motivational speaker or author. You will be amazed at what this might do to motivate you into living the kind of life you are meant to be living.
7.Identify your obstacles to losing weight. Ask yourself if this is really true or are perceived obstacles?
8.If you have a real obstacle, ask yourself this question: “What first step I can I take to overcome this hurdle?” Then, do it.
9.Speak to someone who was very overweight and find out what they did to lose weight.
