spark coach visualization-

Monday, November 19, 2012

Visualize something weighing the amount I lost.

My (big) cat is 19.5 lbs. I lost about 24 lbs. in about 2 years.

So, if I carry my cat around all day plus 5 lbs. of sugar, that will be about what I was carrying 2 years ago!

    I think in terms of bowling balls and my dad's saddle. I lost 5 ten pound bowling balls. I can't even imagine carrying that. Or....I lost the equivalent of the saddle. Another thing I can barely lift.

    I did this, too. It is so powerful to put the lost weight in perspective.

    My friend & I once went to the grocery store & loaded me up with 22 pounds of butter. It was the exact amount I had lost. We took a photo but it got wet and damaged. It would have been fantastic on a vision board. Sometimes, I think a "what I have accomplished" board would be very motivating.

I'd have to carry my nephew and our cat. Fun to realize how far I've come.

    hmmm...I'm not sure kitty wants to be part of that object lesson. emoticon Wouldn't take long for mine to want down, and he would be jealous of the bag of sugar sharing his attention. emoticon

Great job on the weight loss, and the visualization!

    Great visualization! I'd have to carry a man around, which would be even more annoying than an irritated cat and possibly shredded bag of sugar.
