I just found the coolest thing. www.futureme.org. You can write yourself an email in the future.
I did it. Here's mine:
I'm writing you, today, December 10th, 2008. You started your weight loss and fitness program on December 1st, and are writing a blog.
I'm sending this for delivery SIX months from now, June 10th, 2009. Hopefully by now, you are at or very close to your goal weight of 160.
If you're not, or you gave up, shame on you. Remember how good it felt to eat right and exercise?
Hopefully this email will help you feel GREAT and PROUD about your accomplishments!
No matter what... I love you. :)
So... you should do it. I'm curious also, if you're willing to share, what your "Future Me" email said.
