#*And as for rewards, don't just think big picture. You need rewards for those checkpoints, too. Have you exercised every weekday for two weeks? Great -- reward! Lost that first ? Reward yourself, but not with food. Take a nap, go shopping, purchase concert tickets or do whatever would motivate you to keep going.

#*There's always punishments, too. If you miss a workout, that's $5 put in the jar that's going toward your husband's/son's/best friend's beer fund. No excuses!

#*Your daily weight can fluctuate due to water retention. Instead of basing your progress on daily weigh-ins, pick a set day and time each week to log your weight. Then, add the cumulative numbers of your weigh-ins and average them at the end of the month. This will offer you a more realistic showcase of your progress.

#*Muscle weighs more than fat, so a scale may not always reflect the progress in your level of fitness. If you feel comfortable doing so, take photos of yourself on a monthly basis. Pictures can provide a great visual motivator as you consider your progress.
