Part of the "Body for Life" program, which is basically just a bodybuilding-style diet and exercise program with interval cardio a couple days a week, is taking a "before" picture of yourself - shirt off, gut and man-boobs flappin' around - and placing it somewhere where you have to see it frequently. The program itself is not really my thing, but I think the "before" picture idea is fantastic. Sometimes you need to step back and see photographic evidence in order to get your fat ass in gear.
I don't know about the "send it to a hot chick" thing. Luckily, my wife is the hottest chick I know
, so she was well aware of my former temporary chubbiness.
Another thing I had good luck with was visualizing the reactions of a) someone I wanted to impress and b) someone who would love to see me fat and miserable.
