I've read articles about how important it is to reward yourself for completing your goals. I love having something to look forward to. For example, I found a pair of earrings I'll allow myself to buy after I've lost 5 pounds. Also, this might not motivate everyone, but a couple months ago I bought a beautiful skirt that is a size or two too small. I tried it on for church Sunday, and it still didn't fit! Boo. But... it's getting closer to fitting, and that motivates me to work hard so I'll get to wear it someday soon.
I hope everyone is seeing small changes in themselves. I definitely feel more energy in myself. Last week was stinkin' tough, and I felt a little ornery without my mid-afternoon chocolate pick-me-up, but I'm glad Stephanie picked something challenging. Keep up all the good work folks!
