    I have a list of things I do each day associated with my food and exercise plans and goals. I don't always do everything on my list but I do something every single day. I must stay focused on this because it is important.

    I try to pay more attention to my very small body changes. Pants I've been wearing a while that are a little bigger in the waist or a little less tight in the thighs. Measuring is sometimes a pleasant surprise. I was told by a pal in Weight Watchers to measure my waist to see if I was losing fat in the most medically risky place to carry it. I am not obsessive about any of this any more, but it's nice to check myself out in my clothes and feel a bit better than to stand and criticize my bare body! LOL

    My best tip is each thing I shouldn't eat, I look at it and decide....YOU'RE NOT WORTH IT. I'll eat you in 5 seconds flat and need a week to get you out of my system. I chose what goes into me with precision. I'm not wasting one more day. I can either do it now for this year, or spend another 10 yrs trying. I'm doing it!

    My best tips are planning, and writing down my goals and accountability (check box, record in blog, whatever -- showing that I'm meeting them). Between the two of them, I've been staying on track since starting in July. Totally amazes me, too. LOL

    journalling. Worked when I did the weight loss clinic and lost the 60+ pounds. Then I stopped and gained it back. It is helping now too. I log even when I know I did bad. Just to remind myself how I have to work to "undo" the extra calories.

    My best tip /trick is looking in the mirror each day. I hate to get on the scales but I have to gauge my success or failure some way so I look in my mirror. That is what brought me to this site and that is what has motivated me over the past months. The mirror does not lie. Plus use the tools on sparkpeople, they are wonderfully helpful. good luck!
