Dig out one of those pictures of when you were fit and healthy, and hang it up somewhere where you will see it. But don't leave it alone. Take a picture of yourself right now, and put them together, side by side. (Or if you would like, just put up a picture of you now).
What can be more motivating than a picture of how you look now, and how you want to look again?
This is hard for me to do, because I dislike seeing pictures of my current weight. However, I believe it is going to be the most effective way for me to break out of my denial.
To take a few steps further, and to embrace my "Honest Weight Loss" I am going to post both pictures here on the blog.
This was actually kind of hard for me. For the last few years, I have done my best to avoid getting my picture taken. I am usually the one behind the camera. Really, that is sad, one day, my kids will wonder where on earth their mother was when they were young. So, I am going to change, and I am going to lose weight, so I don't feel emberassed to be in pictures any more.
After the first eight weeks, I will update the my now current picture with one showing my progress! After each milestone is met, I will update, and hopefully I'll melt down closer and closer to that wonderful picture of me fit and thin!
