Great idea for a vision board using the French Memo Board! Your new background looks great too. Purple is for royalty and for wisdom. It is the color of the priest's vestments in my Episcopal church from Lent to Palm Sunday. emoticon

Thanks, but I'm a bit flabby! I think I will visualize those muscles into exsistence! I have changed my goal many times. It's not really about the weight, but how you feel about you look and feel!

Jennifer at your weight I can't imagine you are "fat". I'm going to revise my goal lower and think I will just wait to meet this one as an incentive to myself.

Anyway on a muscle v fat picture - I took that at my dr's appt with the camera phone so its an okay pic - very motivating to me though. I found an even better pic on the web to add to a sparkpage if anyone want it, cut and paste the link

I am fascinated by that muscle v. fat pic! I've been trying to decide if I need to lose weight or just firm up. I'm thinking I'd look okay if I just turned that five pounds on each hip into muscle! I wonder how long that will take? Hmmm.. Intriguing!

Love your vision board, Beachblonde!! What a great idea to put it on a French board! Also, great to start your daughter working on one. Not sure I shared this with you, but when I was a teen I made a list of things I wanted to do "before I die" (I didn't put a date on them. Two of them were trips -one to Switzerland and one to Thailand (then called SIam). I have done both and through rather "miraculous" (The Secret working) ways! Tell her to dream big!

I like your vision board, BeachBlond!

Being an artist, I am very attuned to color...purple is a wonderful color...I love to use it in paintings for an exotic, mysterious, and imaginative feel.

The color purple, or lavender, or violet is said to be a symbol of royalty and wealth...also wisdom and spirituality, and sometimes exotic.

Here is some interesting info on color:

And my favorite, for an enjoyable quick break, using color therapy:

Have a colorful day! emoticon

Also, doing it with your daughter must have been a lot of fun... what a great positive influence for her!

Thanks for sharing!

Okay I completed my board, have it on my spark page (third photo down) and loved the inspiration I had after seeing the cork board in the movie "The Secret". Yesterday we found these French Memo Boards on clearance at Kohls for 1.99!!! and my daughter and I each got one. It's so cute, she's 13 and made her own vision board, her idea!

Anyway, the nice thing is that you can readily change out the items on your board and if they don't fit under the ribbons just use a straight pin to attach. Also, its pretty and feminine if that's your thing!

Here's part of my blog entry about it that explains my goal. I will admit I added the words success and happy with my computer program and will add them to my real board, I made it my desktop background as some here suggested for maximun impact!

My vision board blog~~~~~~~~~~~~~ emoticon

Okay FINALLY made my first vision board, used a french memo board so I can easily move and replace things as they happen or my desires change. Just used straight pins if didn't go under ribbon.

I also took the photo on the page of it to share and set it as my desktop wallpaper - the actual board is across from my bed so the first thing I see in the morning and the last thing at night. If you believe what you think about, comes about then a vision board is a GREAT way to focus on what you want to happen.

Some of my quotes on the board are "But if we are truly happy inside, then age brings with it a maturity, a depth, and a power t hat only magnifies our radiance." ; "I don't want to be younger. I just want to look it. " ; "Inner Beauty: The Shining"; "to relieive stress" ; "mindful eating" ; "get fit" ; "a little romance" ; "you're in a happy marriage" ; "stay fit" ; "postive person" ; "sexy and confident" ; "live your best life" ; "keep the pounds off for good"; "health" and more....

My board represents my desire to live a fit and healthy lifestyle, centered and calm, with a strong family and marriage, good friends and enjoying a successful career and luxury items which I represented with BMW, Coach, Rolex, Brahmin, Citizen, Nike apparel, Beach front home and Cash.

Hey guys I need to look up the significance of PURPLE unless someone here knows, I changed out my spark page to match my vision board - lavendar and blue....I have a friend who does color therapy, I'll look it up and post it as I think that its an interesting topic. Maybe it is because purple is like spring to me
