1. Always picture yourself the way you want to look and feel.
2. Self affirmation is also great if you can do this, it takes practice to even remember to do this. Place cards and/or sticky notes in car, handbag, briefcase, bathroom, front door, back door, anywhere you look regularly, all of them reminding you to stay focused and remember what you want to look and feel like when you reach your goal. Can't hurt, the worst it can doo is look a bit untidy, isn't that worth looking and feeling great.
3. Maybe place some sticky notes onto the fridge and pantry that say things like I don't need that junk & have a water instead, that is if you like to munch on bad snacks like alot of us do/did.
Well there's my views
Cheers

It think that the mind has a big part in anyone achieving their goals. So you need to believe that you can do the changes, if you don't you won't!! If you keep telling yourself it's too hard, I can't do it, you won't and you will never be able to change. Like the quote: "What the mind can conceive, you can achieve"

Mindset is key. Everyone must truly believe in themselves. And you should. Because you can!

I also think you can't stress the accountability enough either - the more people you tell you are doing the contest, the more people you will have asking when they can see the before/after pictures. When you know that that day is coming up, it does motivate you a lot more! It is temporary, and the other tips are much better long-term, but I needed that potentially embarrassing moment (of showing after pics that had no change) to get me through my first 10 lbs or so. Now it is about much more than that, as I have seen results and love it, but that kept me going in the beginning until my own drive kicked in.

Default Online interval timer.

This tip is about interval training. You can buy an interval timer online. I think Craig mentioned mygymoss as one. If you have an Iphone they have interval timer apps for a couple of bucks or you can use a free online interval timer if you do your intervals near a computer. Here's the link. I'm not affilated with them I just use it and find it helpful.
