Ready To Throw In The Towel On The Weight Loss Plan?


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When you are ready to throw in the towel on your weigh loss plan but you are not near goal weight. Go to a retail store into the dressing room strip down and check out the behind view of your body. I did that last week and everytime I am tempted to stray from my plan I think of the view from the backside, and think I need to get that so it looks better!

    And stick out your arms and wiggle the flab under the arms. A side view of the stomach is a great incentive as well. This is a great idea. I had a birthday cake filled weekend and I need to go "try on clothes" to get back on track.

Make sure it's a mirror with a realistic view of your image. Some mirrors tend to make you look thinner than you are. Trick mirrors!

    Too funny!

My girlfriend has a video of herself attending a wedding - same concept!
