I'm paying myself $5 per pound, and I can't spend it until I meet my goal. So far this has satisfied my need for instant gratification, plus I'll actually have money for new clothes once I reach my goal. I have it up on the fridge so that it's staring me in the face Also, I just don't buy junk snacks any more because I don't need the temptation and hubby doesn't need to eat it either. My only other advice is to make your healthy options easy. Like, I know that I'm lazy so I buy bags of pre-washed salad and baby carrots. Bulk veg would be more thrifty, but I know I won't take the time to prep it.

I like this. Can you explain what the red and green bars are? I tried to figure it out it's not working

For motivation I took and made a picture collage of my girls. Under it I wrote "My Girls, My Reason".

That is awesome!! You are doing great!

My motivation is that I want to look like I used to when I was skinny. Every time I think of cheating I remember how I do not want to look like this anymore and want to be thing again. I also do not keep snakcs I love in the house.

Today I am 150.1...so still hanging on the 150s.

It is rediculously close. I keep hoping that tomorrow I will see the loss. Seems like every other day I go from 150 point something to 151.5 so I am not getting my hopes up...LOL!

Re: The 25lb Challenge October thread

I definitely could use some motivation tips too, seems like every day it wavers. Some days it's awesome and the next I'm telling myself that the weight I'm at is ok, or it's good enough, etc. etc.

On a good note, I did Day 1 of JM's body revolution. It was AWESOME. Great workout, and I love how this will have more variety day to day than the 30DS, but it's just as quick. I also placed a big Victoria Secret order (yoga pants and T shirts and leggings) for our trip, but ordered mediums rather than larges. Trip is 4 weeks away, so that's some awesome motivation right there as if I don't lose another 10 lb the new clothes won't look that great on me. Talk about pressure!
