    I thought it would be a good idea for us all to post ideas on how we motivate ourselves to keep going. My techniques:

    - When I'm hungry because I'm bored, I try to go out for a walk, jog or cycle instead. Keeping busy works too (cleaning, working, ringing a friend).

    - When I have a chocolate craving I have 1 square of 99% cocoa: it gives you the cocoa hit, it's practically sugar-free, plus it's not that nice so you don't want any more :D

    - To know why I am doing this I look at old "skinny" photos of myself.

    - I don't buy too many bad-for-you foods, so that I don't have to use too much of my (practically non-existent) will-power.

    - This one is probably not so good, lol: I drink lots of coffee...nomnom, tasty, and keeps you full.

    What techniques do you use? Let's share and learn from each other.

    Hm I don't know why this is in the Lipotrim forum...I'm a newbie! I hope it's ok if I just move it to a general forum, because it's not a specific topic!

    Yeah, I know, I tried to move it to a general forum but didn't know how to! I think I posted this ages ago when I first joined - sorry!
