Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels

We all have different ways to motivate ourselves, and some of us our more successful than others keeping that motivation going strong. We have moments, mantras, and routines to keep us on track.

So..."nothing tastes as good as skinny feels"...and as much as I would like to take credit for this one, it came directly off of my sister-in-law Cheryl's fridge. She has this written on an 8 x 10 piece of paper at eye level on her fridge. This is her way of motivating herself to get out of the fridge!

I have another friend who recites "Fatty fatty 2 x 4, can't fit through the kitchen door" every time she thinks about eating something unhealthy.

As much as I'd like to be on track this week, it's just not happening for me. I'm not feelin' the love. Meetings with pop, donuts, and cookies have been on my schedule all week. Insane hours have turned into a reason to not get on the elliptical or pop in a DVD. Excuses, excuses! NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS SKINNY FEELS. Get it? Keep saying it over and over and you will.

Find your mantra, your mojo, your motivation--whatever it is, keep at it! Or just do it, like Nike. I'm going to stop making excuses, and you should too!

As soon as I'm done here, I'm making myself a little fridge sign with Cheryl's mantra--nothing tastes as good as skinny feels--and maybe even adding some Victoria's Secret models on it. Who knows? Maybe this will be the mantra that I need to stay on you think they'd be mad at work if I made that sign for the vending machine? Bwhahahha!

Happy dieting, friends!
