Like "YEAH!!! You Go Girl!!! You can do this! Reward yourself for meeting little goals (with non food items) like if you lose 5 more pounds you will treat yourself/or give yourself a new pedicure. If you lose 5 lbs or... what ever your goal is- like if you walk 5 days in a row, you will treat yourself to ... I made a coupon book for myself. I had my husband and kids give their input. Like if I lost 10 pounds- my kids would do the dishes for a week. If I walked every day for a week, my husband would treat me to a 20 minute foot massage. Be creative but it is VERY important to reward yourself even even if you look in the mirror and say- I am getting healthier and stronger! Watch out world! Good luck!"
