I have a motivation picture set as the background on my desktop, but I try to spend more time away from my computer since I have a desk job. Setting a transformation picture as my background helps remind me why I need to make healthier choices and push through the exercises.
You could use either a "before" picture of yourself or a stunning transformation picture that you use for motivation. I also cosplay, and sometimes use the inspiration for my costume as a reminder that I want to look good like that.

I set my phone background as a picture of myself in a bikini at my happiest and healthiest weight. I look at my phone screen countless times a day and it is a constant reminder when I am thinking about eating something unhealthy or calling a friend to meet for lunch that I need to make good choices with my eating habits. Having that visual reminder constantly in my face helps me!
Often a Sparkmember will have a gorgeous picture as their page background but it will be hidden by the page itself, usually only showing the outer edges of the picture, no matter how far down you scroll.
To uncover the picture, right click and choose View Background Image - the whole picture will open in another tab and you'll be able to see the smiling face!
Many of us have phones that can access the web and or apps that connect us to spark people. USE THEM! i've found that i can track my food more efficiently when i have an easy portable way to do so. it's helped me to break off my plateau by tracking my food. 2 birds with 1 stone.
the 'best' phones for this are Android or Iphone as they have app capability, but other internet ready/able phones can do it too.
