I lost heaps of weight by going by the Kate Moss creed ‘Nothing tastes as good as feeling thin feels’

@Evie19: You can do it!!

Don’t get discouraged. And best not to live in the past. I learned that myself. Funny thing is, I can remember being upset with or uncomfortable with my weight at the time when an old picture like that was taken, and here I was heavier, and pining to be that weight again…

@Evie19: Good luck!  You can do it!!  I look at photos of myself too, when I was much thinner, almost four years ago too!!  It makes me think I can do it and get back there because I was there before!

My best advice is don’t deprive yourself when you feel you need a treat, but keep it within reason. Just choose one small thing and factor it into your points/calorie limit as best you can.

Also, I found that giving myself star stickers on the calendar for every day I was good and didn’t need any “indulgences” was great positive reinforcement. Watching that calendar fill up with shiny stars gave me just as much of a thrill as a caloriffic chocolate bar would have.

I was looking at pictures of myself from the summer and couldn’t believe the change. Unfortunately, I am failing with the diet and exercise.  I’m so ashamed.

I have 100’s of pictures of me smaller but i took one of all my chunky galore and keep that there i see that as more of a motivator because I know i will never get down to my tiny 95lbs again…

@linguo42:  I like the star idea.  Very visual way to see how awesome you are doing and stay motivated.
