A few months ago I read somewhere on SparkPeople that it's a good idea to have some sort of physical representation of how far you've come on your own particular journey. I have a lot of weight to lose - the idea of collecting 90lbs of lard in my fridge really didn't appeal. So instead I pinched someone elses's idea of a paperclip chain - each paperclip to represent a pound of weight loss. Mine's growing, and each time I see it dangling next to my mirror it reminds me far I've come and how much effort I've invested. Far too much to turn back and return to my bad old ways.
