I sometimes get down on my self and feel like all my hard work is not paying off..so on my really down days I feel very depressed and i force my self to get ready i put on some make up do my hair in a nice style wear nice clothes, and then i start to feel a lot better. I feel confident again. I went out and bougth some really nice workout clothes and shoes, when i workout i feel pretty and that keeps me going as funny as that sounds it brings up my confidence that i lack. I also try and write my self notes while i workout that say "you can do it" and " don't give up". Yeah they may be corny but it helps me. I 'am the one puting all this work and i reward me with long relaxing baths, and pamparing my self and just smile because my goal is so close I can feel it, i picture my self skinny everyday. So what little things do you do to help you along the way that mean a lot to you?
