For various goals in my life I always start with a "Vision Board" A sortof collage made up of photos, pictures (from magazines or elsewhere), key motivational images and words that pertain to the goals I will achieve. Currently I am in the process of recreating myself by the time I turn 60 (in 2 years) and weight loss is a part of that

Many people make a vision board/collage/goal-board or whatever you want to call it. You can put quotes and motivational images on it and hang it were you can see it everyday. Well, I created a "mini-vision board" I carry in my purse and look at any time of the day.
Cut out images or hand write whatever you like on a index card large enough to fit everything you want, but small enough to fit in your purse, wallet, pocket, tacked on your desk or wherever! It's best to laminate it, our simply put strips of scotch tape across it to protect card from wear & tear
Life is busy, but the good thing about having goals is that they don't have to be long and drawn out. They can be short enough just to give you that feeling of success and accomplishment, that jumpstart you need to spring board you into where you are trying to get to and where you wanna be. Vision boards are good because it allows creativeness and keeps the picture right there in front of you and helps you to maintain your focus. Start the year off with a positive mental attitude for success.
Make you own picture look thinner for your Vision Board
I made my vision board for weigh loss last week I found this site where you put in your picture (download) and it redoes it to make you look thinner you put in your current weight and then you put in the weight you want it to make you look and it ... I loved it ! so I am passing it on... I wanted my vision board to have a projected weight picture for me to look at!
