- Pucker Up!: I will sometimes purposefully put on lip gloss or lipstick (especially when I am out and about). For some reason, in my wacky brain, I know that if I eat or drink anything, it will rub off and be "wasted". Totally weird, but it works for me.
- Empty Pockets: When I go to refill my water bottle in my company's cafeteria or when I go for a walk around my neighborhood, I do not have any money on me. So when I walk past the case of cookies in the cafeteria or the donut shop that is two blocks away from my house, I can't buy anything.
- Get in Gear: I usually have about an hour of time to kill in between arriving home and when I leave to go to workout. When I get home, I immediately put on my workout gear so that I am ready to run out the door with no excuses. Let me tell you, I can come up with lots of GREAT excuses not to work out. (the weather/tired/stressed/hungry/etc)
- Spread The Word: For those of you who I am friends with of Facebook, you've seen me do this time and time again. I announce what exercise (usually Zumba or Jazzercise) that I am going to be doing that day/evening. I've even heard of people who "tweet" their exercise goal of the day. I feel that once I say it and put it out there for everyone to see, that I must go accomplish that goal. A form of accountability, I guess.

The Mind Games That I Play!
As I've said over and over, the journey with the lap band is 50%+ mental.
