Here's tomorrow's challenge a little early:

Happy Tuesday to you!

Do you know the difference between someone that gets to their ideal goal weight, and those that never do? They know that getting there takes time AND visualizing what it will be like when they get there.

Your goal today is in TWO PARTS.

First:

VISUALIZE YOURSELF AT GOAL. There are many ways to do this:

*Clip out photos in magazines/newspapers of what your body will look like

*Go back and find photos of yourself when you were slimmer

*Make a list of things you will be able to do when you are slimmer (i.e. going for a brisk 2 mile walk without stopping, buying clothing right off the rack, etc.)

*Get out (or buy) your goal weight size clothing. I would suggest going to a thrift store and not spending a bunch on this. Your size might be even smaller when you get to goal.

*Go online and make a "virtual you" at goal. Printing out the picture (or posting it on your Sparkpage) can really motivate you!


Second:

*Write down what you need to do to get to goal

*A healthy weight loss is between 1-1.5lbs. a week (when you are really working on eating right, exercise, drinking water, and getting your rest). How much weight do you need to lose to get to goal? With hard work, YOU CAN GET TO GOAL.
Realize that getting to goal TAKES TIME. You can give yourself a time frame, however, you need to realize that this is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE. The weight did not come on overnight. It will take dedication and self-worth to get to a new you.

*Think positive! YOU ARE WORTH THIS! You deserve to live an active lifestyle. You deserve to live longer and spend time with those you love. YOU ARE WORTH THIS!

*How about making a journal? Do you write on your blog? Sometimes, just getting things down on paper (or electronically) can help you work through a tough day. Consider keeping track of more than calories!

Have a great Tuesday!
