Virtual model eye opener
Thursday, September 15, 2011
I was looking at some of the "virtual models' that I had seen on some of the other Sparkpages and decided to check it out at MVM.com.
I knew I may be in for a shock, but I'm not sure I was quite prepared for what I was about to see. I entered in my current information; height, weight, body type, etc. to creat my model. About 5 seconds after clicking the button, the standard model blimps into this reality check version of me! Talk about a shocker! I mean, you know what you look like in the mirror, but to see like an identicle figure of what you REALLY look like was a huge eye opener!
So I started playing with the weight of my avitar and was curious as to what I would like like at my goal weight (or what I thought would be my goal weight!). WOW, talk about an eye opending moment! I took my model down another 25lbs and couldn't belive my eyes...that is what I would look like! That could be ME!
I printed both models out and now hang them in my office next to my computer to remind me everyday about where I am and where I want to be. It has been a huge factor in keeping me motivated and not running to the cafeteria for every craving.
I highly suggest trying this, you may be surprised how putting your goal in a tangible form can both inspire and transform your thinking.
