When I turned 30 I lost 36 pounds. I maintained it for two years. I did so by keeping my fat pictures. My first thought was to throw the one I had used as my motivator to lose away. But I kept it. I looked at it when I "forgot" what I had looked like. I was derailed that time. But this time, I think I will have an 8X10 made up and post it on the fridge!

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.
I keep two pictures on my dresser ALWAYS! A picture of me when I was'nt happy with my weight, and eating habits. And a picture of the NEW me happy, and healthy. It keeps you in check, to maintain the new you. And a constant reminder of all the hard work you put into changing you life. You might say 'Ughh" looking at the one, followed by "But look at me now!!" 248
