Default Favorite mini-motivators?

Hi all, what are some of your favorite mini motivators/reminders to help get you thru the dog days of dieting?

A few of mine are:
-Clothes shopping at our good local thrift store and seeing the bargains that I cant quite fit into yet... (clothes shopping anywhere does it for me, but I am very frugal)

-Hanging a piece of clothing just one size too small where I can see it daily.

-re-reading the list of why I want to lose.

I find I have to keep coming up with new ones to keep them working. Do you use any other ones that are effective?

Jan

Looking through Oxygen magazine. Too many muscle pics and fitness articles are a definite appetite suppresant!

I cut out a picture of a body image I want from a mag (a reasonable one not a super model or anyhing) and cut a picture of my head and put it on the cut out of the body, seems to work whenever i get depressed i look at it and it cheers me up to think Ill look like that once I've gotten to my goal.
I also have mini goals and mini reward like by nov 11 I want to lose 2lbs my reward is a new pair of earrings or lipstick something cheap.

I got this idea somwhere else on this website, so I can't take credit for it, but I have bought a charm bracelet and add a charm for every 10 pounds I lose. I wear it almost every day and it reminds me that even though I have only three charms now, the bracelet will be full some day and will be an ongoing reminder of how far I've come.
