    I used negative images on my frig needless to say that didn't work. I will try positive images this time.
    Trouble with visuals, after awhile, you really don't pay attention anymore, useful at first though...just like reading cutesy quotes, after awhile they don't register at all. You need to look inward, and that gets tiresome....
  • Thanks for the advice! I'm going to write everything down and gather some photos. Great article!
  • 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.
  • Very interesting article, lots to think on. I will be rereading this one.
    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'm def going to try this and see how it goes...
  • I spend so much time commuting that the "message on the dash" seems like a good idea.
  • Absolutely agree so thank you!

    Positive visuals create a momentum for positive results.....

    I am a believer ;)
  • 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.
    Quote the article: "A picture of what you want (or don’t 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.
