BLC 17: Visual Motivators (with pictures)
Friday, February 08, 2013
Excuse the terrible pictures... I REALLY need a new camera!
This is the visual motivator that I made for BLC 16. There are 107 pink gem thingys; the jar on the left has 1 gem per pound that I still need to lose (currently 44) and the jar on the right has 1 gem per pound that I have lost (currently 63). It is so satisfying every time I get to move a gem from the jar on the left to the one on the right!! Oh, and sorry about the huge amazon box in the background- I didn't even think about it being there until I uploaded the picture and my camera is such a hassle that I don't want to go retake it!
This is the visual motivator that I made for BLC 17. It is a picture of a thermometer with 10% increments listed. I added in 5%, as well (I didn't want to have to lose a full 10% of my weight to get to color each section in!). Basically, I pencilled in how much I need to lose to hit every 5% of the total weight I want to lose (100% being 107 pounds), then I wrote the dates when I hit the weight loss. I'm working on being 60% down right now (63/64.2 lbs). The only thing I don't like about this is that whoever made the template has things like, Frozen (up to 10%) and Tepid (40-50%). I personally feel like anyone who has lost 40-50% of the weight that they are wanting to lose is doing great... not tepid. Losing even 5% of your goal is awesome, not "frozen." But whatever! I like to color.
