Before I started SP I did a motivation board of pictures of what I wanted to be and what I wanted to achieve. It has things like old pictures of a skinnier me, places I want to visit. It even has a picture of a baby as me and my partner want to get healthier so that we could start a family.
I have put my creation in my bedroom where I will see it everyday, if I have a bad day I look at my board and it highlights my hopes and dreams. It gets me back on track
I keep the picture of myself I hate the most near buy So I rember why I am working so hard.
My last vacation in was in June and my loving boyfreing snaped an inocent piture of me after we had just had lunch and were waiting to catch the subway train. Well when revieing those pictures later I had seen that I looked as if I was 4 months pregnant. This shot has been m otivation to get moving.
One day looking through old pictures i found my former self, beautiful and petite, the way i wish to be now. I took the time to go back and talk to the old me and ask for some of the will power i use to have, she let me borrow some. so now when i see myself, i no longer feel depressed, cause that person in that picture is still in me, I realize that i am my best motivation, i am my best friend. that person in the picture is the real me within!213
