I printed out my virtual pictures (current weight & goal weight) put them in a frame & have them sitting on my desk. I look at them all the time. I can't wait to be that Hottie in the goal weight picture

I made pictures of myself that reflected my ideal weight to hang on my fridge. When I open the door, I think about whether the foods I choose will help me achieve this new identity, or make me wait to reach my goals.
My Virtual Model has an online tool that works great!
Take pictures before you begin your program...take them in a work out outfit or a swim suit...doesn't matter what you look like because these pics are JUST for you. Take frontal, side and rear view pics...then take them every 4-8 weeks...in the exact same clothing, doing the same poses. Then compare. Pics can help you see progress when you don't see it in other ways...
Have an iPhone, iPod, or any electronic device that you can load pics onto and watch in slideshow form?? Make an album full of motivating pics. Mine currently has hot celebs, clothing I want to wear when I'm at my goal, pics of people working out, motivating phrases etc. Then when you are at a particularly difficult workout put that slideshow on and remind yourself why you are doing this. It works every time :)
