Thanks for drawing my attention back to the visual messages about health that are near my computer. I have a jeweled wire note card stand with an affirmation about well-being. There is also a watercolor miniature of a radiant being above the affirmation. It got moved out of the way recently. Now it is close to computer where I easily see it.

As a mother with 2 dyslexic children, this article helped me to understand them and their learning struggles as well as me and my 18 year battle with my weight. Thank-you!!!!!!

I spend so much time commuting that the "message on the dash" seems like a good idea.

When my husband eats properly, it is easy for me to carry a healthy weight.

Does this mean that if I post a pictures of my husband, he'll take control of himself instead of me? When he saw one picture he said, 'why did you take this, it makes me look fat?' Yet he takes lots of pictures of my backside (big side) because he likes to look at it.

We also have some great pictures from a few years ago when he looked great.

I took a few "before" photographs when I first started on this journey and then, on a whim, I Photoshopped my profile image to greatly reduce my stomach size and the fat under my chin/jaw. The result was HIGHLY motivating to me. So much so, I've made it my desktop background image and put it on my Spark Page!

I kinda/sorta remember being that size (about 20 years ago) and it's true what the article says -- seeing that image in my mind's eye helps me to take the actions necessary to achieve the result that I want.

CONTRADICTION!
Quote the article: "A picture of what you want (or donít want) to look like"
Quote the article: "Positive pictures = positive progress"
A picture of what you (don't want) to look like is negative. This does not "surround yourself with the positive."

I enjoyed this article and reading the responses from other members. I, too, have discovered daily affirmations - not pictures but words. I think I will add pictures to that. Thanks for the good reminder and interesting article.

This must be why when you are pregnant you see other pregnant people everywhere!

This article reminded me of a time long ago when I was losing weight (which I'm still doing). I had cut out bodies of people in a magazine (that I thought I would like on me) and put a picture of my face on it and posted it. It did help and so by reading this article I find it runs along the same lines. So here's to posting.

I have been saying my affirmations out loud every morning for a couple of mornings. I also have visuals images I look at every day. This is one of the tools that helps me stay motivated. Good article!
