I joined SP and this team about a year ago but stuck to it only a couple of months. Now I'm up and running again. I did make a vision collage last year and will post it when I can find my camera and cable, but I think I need to alter it a bit to keep it fresh.

Hi, I'm here because Spark Coach suggested that I check it out, too. emoticon

I have wanted to put together a vision board for years. I guess it is time for my to stop procrastinating and just do it. Like with my workouts, it doesn't have to be perfect. I just need to start. And like my workouts, it can be a work in progress. I can add things as I have new desires. I can create new vision boards as I reach my goals, but I will never have one if I don't start.

I am going on a walk as soon as I put on my walking shoes. Then lunch at noon. I have scheduled putting together my vision board at 2 p.m.

Someone else said it for me: I'm here because my SparkCoach told me to check it out. I have a drawer full of magazines, plenty of glue and a board, so I am ready!
My name is Priscilla. I'm a "got-here-as-fast-as-I-could" Texan. I'm retired from a teaching career--Kindergarten, Art K-12, and private/group lessons.
I joined a cool group of lady artists called GAGA here in the San Antonio area and I look forward to exhibiting with them for a long time.
I have Type 1 diabetes (since 1979) and arthritis in my spine and hips.
My goal is to lose many years of weight by July 5th.
With that in mind, I so far have lost all of 4+ pounds, but who's counting??! I love SparkPeople!

Joyfully keeping on...keeping on!

Welcome everyone! Vision collages can grow in number through the years, as you change. Hold on to those that seem outdated, for their meaning can transform as you do. GARDNSONGSTRESS had a great idea for getting started, and it really is that easy. Just start tearing out images (or, if you're technologically inclined, keep track of those you like online). The other thing that helps is creating a "space," even if it's a corner of a room or desk. Add music, a candle - whatever draws you into the deeper part of yourself that can get lost in our busy lives. Thanks for sharing; you are each important and loved.

I'm starting fresh collages today. I have made some before and they were helpful for a while. At some point they lost their power so I think the takeaway is to refresh them anytime I feel disconnected from the vision...not just give up and put them away. I realize a vision board can best serve me by being fluid. I think I will transfer images that represent what I've accomplished from my current vision board to an "achieved it" board so I will keep my current board fresh and turn to my "achieved it" board when I'm feeling behind on my goals or feeling unsuccessful.

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you.- Fred Devito

I don't know why I didn't want to get started on this project, once I collected the first picture I was hooked and did 3 in one night! I posted the last one in the gallery, I've already thought of other things I could have added but they'll have to wait until the next VB.

My name is Christie and I have been w/ SP for quite some time. Very successful in the being but then I put someone else before myself and disappeared. I made a few appearances here and there, but health issues and some other things I have been working on have allowed me to commit fully to the site again and I love the virtual vision board and am excited to work on my "physical" one. I did put a poster board in my office and hope to start w/ two words and build on it - Pause and Discipline. I look forward to committing to this team as well.

One day, one step at a time!

Hi! I am Angelina. I've been with SP for a while now. SparkCoach had suggested that I join the group and I am glad I have. I think working on my vision collage will help keep me focused on my goals. I am so thankful for SparkPeople. It has really helped open my eyes to my poor eating habits.

First, I want to welcome our new leader. Secondly, I just came back into Sparks and really want to get involved in the vision college gallery. When i first signed up for this group, I intended to go full force, but i let other things get in my way. So, help to get started and lots of encouragement is what i need!

Good morning all!
I have been with Spark People and Spark Coach for awhile and lost 30 pounds. However, I hurt my foot and am on restriction for a few more weeks. I have been battling this for about 6 weeks now.

I did ok at first. I still ate well, but I couldn't exercise. After awhile, I lost all motivation and then I realized that I had gained 7 pounds. So, I returned to Day 1 on Spark Coach and started over. I am eating better and am exercising as much as the doctor will allow. I have lost 1.5 pounds and feel much better.

I keep telling myself to look at where I am and NOT where I have been or where I will be. I am trying my darndest to be happy with the little 1/2 mile I am allowed to walk and with my stretching exercises I get to do each morning. I am positive that this vision collage will work for me.

However, I cannot be creative on demand, so mine will probably take awhile. I will more than likely make it on wordle because I love that little online app.

Hi,
I signed up for Spark Coach a few weeks ago. Summer is all but over in this resort town and I've started digging into material. My assignment is to make a vision collage, which I will do in Photoshop, since that's what I do at work all day anyway.
;)
I'm going to make it my computer desktop when I'm finished, and put it on all my home computers as well.
If I really like it, I might post it here.
I'm 56 years old and live on Martha's Vineyard Island.
HELLO!!

Just for today I will....

Hello, all!! I've been sparking for 2 years, with a few months of inactivity at the end of 2012. this February, I re-committed to my goals and became active on the site again. I had never created a vision collage--didn't think it would be helpful. I've since learned the power of visual motivation an rewards. I have created an accomplishment board, but not an actual vision collage of my goals. I'm going to get started on that right away!

As a way to sift through all the information I've accumulated in the past 2 years, I joined the Spark Solution Summer Challenge to get back to the basics. I have learned some things that didn't sink in the first time around--like motivational tools and being active in the community. I was so glad to read about this team and immediately joined!

good luck to everyone!!

I've been sparking for nearly 3 weeks (it might be 4, I can't count) and have lost 6 pounds. I joined with the intention of losing 50 pounds, but that may change. Joined Spark Coach this week as I have no other encouragement. Was diagnosed as prediabetic, so thought I had better sort that - but that was a misdiagnosis, not sure how to change that info here. I'm doing a collage today.

I also have joined this team to get the most from SparkCoach. It is pretty evident I need the help because I cannot find the vision collage gallery. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I am also not new to SparkPeople but new to SparkCoach. I have been watching my weight for my entire life and "just" want to lose 10 pounds. I am thinking because it is "only" ten pounds that I can start tomorrow. Well, I now have only two pair of pants that fit, so "tomorrow" has come and gone too many times.

This is one challenge I am going to finish.

Hi, I'm Ciara and I'm new to the team and also to Sparkpeople. My Sparkcoach suggested I join the team and make a vision collage so I've begun the planning stages, started gathering together pictures that I want to put on the board. Thought joining the team might be some extra motivation and support along with the actual act of making the collage.

Hugs, Ciara

Hi everyone. My Spark Coach suggested I create a vision board to help keep my motivation on track. I hear from many others that this team has lots of pointers for creating winning vision boards. I hope to learn from others, get great/helpful tips and be able to offer the same to others,

My main objective and motivation is to become healthier. I want to be able to travel when I retire in a few years and to be able to play with my grandchildren.

I'm new also. I have a mental image of myself as an athlete (in training for my 70's) and would like to translate this image onto posterboard. I don't have any magazines. Where else should I be looking for visuals? In particular, I'd love to find pix of atletic older women.

BECCABOO127 - Welcome to the team! It can be quite a bit of fun making a collage. I'm not a hands on person so mine was a virtual one, but still lots of fun. Keep up the awesome work!

Hi all! I am new to the team. I have collected certain pics to inspire me and have them on my home page. However, I am looking forward to doing an actual vision collage!

Hope everyone is having a good week. :)

Try harder--in everything that you do!

JULIERAE40 - No you would not be a slacker. I've been a member here at Sparkpeople (on and off) since 2007. I didn't make my collage until recently. Also, I made an online collage. I'm not a magazine cut out person. LOL. So, work on what you think is important. If you are looking at a magazine you're allowed to cut stuff out of and you see something motivating, cut it out and save it. Maybe post 1 motivational picture on the fridge or something. Other than that, this is your journey! Whatever works for you is best. Keep up the great work!

Okay, here's the thing..........making a vision collage really sounds like a hassle to me right now. Does that make me a slacker? I want to take in all the advice from Sparkpeople because obviously, spark coach knows more about how to succeed than I do. So far, I have purchased spark coach help, joined the fast breaks, set myself a workout schedule, made goals about healthy eating and used all of the motivational tools like blogging, journaling and recording positive things and thankful things and things I like about me, and having to go through a bunch of magazines looking for things that motivate me and cut them out and glue them to a board just seems like a chore. Honestly, right now I am pretty well occupied with adding in the exercise right now. Would I be missing the benefits if I did this project over time? I do occasionally look through a magazine or two and I could collect things to go toward completing this thing but carving out more time in my 60 hour week seems impossible right now. Sorry. emoticon

Welcome Debbie! I find that just the actual making of the Vision Collage helped motivate me even if I don't look at it very much. I think I'll just make one when I feel my motivation waning LOL. I think you'll like this team a lot! Have a great day and welcome again!

Hi all -
I'm Debbie and I am fairly new to SparkPeople. I'm 61 years old, married, working full-time as an office assistant at IU and hoping to lose weight and get back in shape (if it's not too late).
I'm curious about the vision collage and hope to learn what I can include that will really motivate me and reflect what I want in my life.


All you need is love.

Hi,

I'm Amalia and I'm new to SparkCoach and thus this team. I never created a collage or vision board before so it was interesting. I just made one on Glogster like another post suggested. It wasn't the hardest thing I've ever done but I can't figure out how to get it on here and how to put it on my desktop of my computer. Oh well. I will probably make another one some day when I feel more motivated. I've just been kind of blah lately so it's hard to want to make a motivating collage when you don't care. Hopefully I'll snap out of this funk soon and maybe finding inspiring things for my collage will help.

Welcome to SparkPeople and to the adventure of a Vision Board. It is time for YOU to spend time on YOU and your Dreams, Goals and Plans. It's a fun empowering project and will be a wonderful project for you to work on - You are going to Love it.

Please consider though - including the word GUILT with a HUGE "X" through it. It's a destructive word with no value other than robbing you of joy which you do deserve. So let's work on Positive Beautiful Words for the Positive Beautiful Woman that you are and are becoming.

WELL - let's find at least ONE picture and one phrase/saying/word today to begin building our Vision Board. It can be an online item, spark people motivational saying, or something you create - or just start tearing apart some of those magazines that need to be tossed. There are TONS of things in them.

Start collecting - I'm going to. Got it?

1 -- picture
1 -- text

let's post what we found today - remember - they may not even go into your collage but they will be a motivating start.

I've always wanted to do a vision board but never have. I was excited to see that there was a SparkTeam on this topic! I'm looking forward to the advise of fellow Sparkers on this!

emoticon to all and super introductions! Check out some of the new threads for ideas on getting started, and remember that SparkPeople offers Vision Boards as a one-time challenge under your "my SparkPoints" page (under your SparkPage header, "My Trackers"). There's a great introductory article there, too. Here's the link:

Hi! Like most, I've never done a collage. REALLY need ideas to get started in the right direction.

Celebrating 10 awesome months of SP and the new me on this awesome journey. I posted my vision board that got me to Sassy & Sexy by Sixty.

BUT I am struggling to find and define new Goals and a Vision to get me to the next stage. Hence, I am here AND I will get there.

Celebrating 37th anniv soon - lifetime JerseyGirl with some wonderful travel adventures on my checked list and hopefully many more. Grandmother and full time Church/School Mgr. Totally loving my new passion for fitness - who'da thought? Not me, not my family. Who is happy? DH :)

Hello! Spark Coach told me to make a vision collage, which I've always thought was not a big deal before, but I did it anyway. And I'm so glad I did! I have it as the background on my computers at work and home and on my cell phone. It keeps me focused and when the motivation is waning I look to the inspiration and bigger picture that it provides me and it helps me stay on track. I even took the plunge of sharing mine with my facebook friends and people were very supportive!

Greetings from Las Vegas. I was led here today by Spark Coach. I love vision boards and have had one, but I need to make a new one to go with the new me! I look forward to gleaning new ideas and inspiration, and hopefully to making some new friends as well.

Bright Blessings on this beautiful day!

Hi All, I joined this group to learn some insights and get a few tips before I make a vision collage. Maybe I am making this too difficult, but I do not know where to begin.

Hey all!

I'm new to the group, but not to sparkpeople. This will be my first vision collage. I looked at those uploaded to the group and got so inspired! I'm going to make my first one tonight :) I'm just hoping it will look half as good as all those awesome ones I saw. I have a few ideas about what to put, but those certainly helped!

Hello to all you visionaries. This is my first time posting so I hope I'm doing it in the right spot. I have just discovered Sparkpeople and I love it. I'm so glad there is a vision board forum. I've been doing vision boards for years and recently started exploring soul collage. I uploaded my latest to the gallery. I am curious about the online programs for collaging. Does anyone have a recommendation?

I'm starting a Better Health journal with 8.5"x11" vision boards of the different aspects of becoming stronger and healthier. I made the first one last night and uploaded it here this morning. I think these will be good motivators for me. I'm going to put them in a binder that I can fold back to display whichever board I need help with or inspiration from each day.

Hi,
I am new to this team. My friend who introduced me to SP told me about this group so I am joining. I joined SP in April 2010 with a loss of 29 lbs. I am a grandmother of 3 and live in western British Columbia in Canada.
Once I figure out how to put the collage on the page, I will do so. For those who might already be my friend, you can find my collage on my photo page.
Look forward to meeting some of this team.
I am also a co-leader of the Classy 70's group. If anyone in this group is over 70, I would like to invite you to join us as well.
Happy New Year

Hi!!
I've been on spark for months (over 3) and I just started my first Vision collage. I have collecting stuff that would work for years. I'm finally read to really start my journey.

Hi - My name is Christy. I just put my two collages on the Team Photos. I also have them on my Spark Page. I love them both, they were made at different times of my life! The one that I can hang up in person is great though, I love being able to see it all the time.

Love this idea for a team :)
