One of the biggest things that I struggle with on Weight Watchers is following my points everyday and I am guessing it is something we all struggle with. I have a mindset that the holidays are over and I shouldn't have anything that will tempt me. I have been so incorrect in this assumption. We are going to have temptations everyday. I think that if we take on a mindset that temptations are everywhere we may be better prepared when the temptations do come along.
I have been thinking about ways to motivate me to follow my points more days in a row without fail. One idea that I have come up with is to make chains with construction paper, similar to the countdown ones we made in elementary school counting the days till the holidays. My idea though is to add days to your chain. Start with one color and everyday that you follow add a link in the same color. If you have an event or need a reason to cheat that day just start with a new color the next day and continue with that color till you have another off day.
I think for me having this visual item that shows the work I have been doing may be worth not eating something extra that day and going over my points.
Do any of you have any ideas to reward yourself or to keep yourself motivated?
