    1) Weigh in each morning and write it down
    2) Track food (beyond breakfast and lunch) and plan dinner
    3) Read something motivational each morning so I think about it when I exercise.

    I really like option 3, to think of something motivational while exercising. you are fixing your body AND mind. :)

    Thank you Joan!

    Just for today I will focus on eating slower. I know that I eat too fast and that allows me to just continue to add more food to my body and that is no good!

    Have a WONDERFUL day MFP peeps!

    I love this idea! I'm ready to start seeing some real progress and focusing on "just for today" will add up!

    Just for Today:
    I will take a picture so I can actually see my progress down the road
    I will log all my food
    I will substitute healthy options for the junk that is left over from the holidays
    I will get a run in

    I'm back at this after an absence and I like the "Just for Today" idea. So, just for today:
    1. I will log everything I eat.
    2. I will ignore the desire to eat salty stuff (or anything not good for me) while watching The Ducks!

    This is something I need to remember to make my goal: I want to be @ my lowest maintenance with by March 2, my 54th birthday!

    I love this thread! I think it is exactly what I need to keep me motivated. I will try to commit to three challenges for my "just for today" posts. I will have a mental challenge; a food/drink challenge; and an exercise challenge.

    1. I will accept myself as I am. I will think about improving my health, not losing weight or looking skinny. My worth is determined by my attitude, not a number on a scale or a dress size.
    2. I will plan my meals for next week today so I have time to shop and prep before I get too busy.
    3. I will get out for a walk today.
