Directions for Creating the Visual:

Step one: Choose a motivator from the “My Major Motivation Points” above and locate a picture or pictures that symbolize the motivation point (You can repeat this process for more motivators).
Helpful tips on finding visuals:

Most important is that the visual captures the essence and meaning of the motivating message to you.
Good sources for finding pictures are family album, yearbooks, magazines, newspapers, the internet and hand drawn images.
Step Two: Write a caption for the picture(s)
Helpful tips on writing captions:

Think about the emotions behind the picture, how you felt at the moment is was taken or the first time you saw it.
You can use your own words for the caption or an inspirational quote.
Step Three: Print off the template sheet below and assemble your Visual Motivation.
Helpful tips on assembling your Visual Motivation:

Use one picture or make a collage of pictures. You can also use more than one caption, space permitting.
Be sure to have your motivation description written on the page.
The template below can be used as a guide but you can easily create your own on heavier or more decorative paper.
There is a sample of a completed Visual Motivation sheet below.
Remember to put these Visual Motivations where you will see them every day! Good places are the fridge, the bathroom mirror and your night stand!

What I wrote when I first joined Spark

Friday, January 23, 2009

Hi. I am a 25yr old mom of one and I work from home. I don't ever remember being a "healthy" weight but am trying very hard to get to my "healthy" weight now. I am a member of a gym, I eat pretty healthy.

I have always been a little chubby. Then in 2002 I had a miscarrage and fell into depression and gained 45 pounds. Then I had my wonderfull son who is now 4 (I gained 65 pounds with this pregnancy as I was afraid of having a miscarrage). I got married in feb 07 and gained the newly wed 20 (extra 20 pounds). Just recently (may 07) I just had another miscarrage. The doctors told me that it was because of my weight that I got pre-eclamptic before the baby was 8 weeks along and that forced it to abort itself. That sent me into depression again and I am just getting over it. I have gained another 45 pounds.

I am now looking for others who are in my age group and looking to loose 100+ pounds.

Right now I am at my most at 270 and the dr say I need to be 160-140. That is my goal. I want to acomplish my goal by my 27th birthday.

    You can do it. Several on the Alaska want to lose about the same amount of weight and are about the same age, too (not me - I'm older).

    Im sorry to hear about you miscarriges. Im sure that was a vary hard time in your life and it is completely understandable that you gained weight from depression.
I know that you can get to a healthy weight by your 27th birthday. I believe you can. You know you can. If you need support keep me in mind. I am here anytime.
