Entry number two

Thursday, July 19, 2012

First of all I would like to thank everybody that posted in the comments section of my blog. I was surprised to find out that people were actually reading my blog. I like to hear what people think of what I'm doing, it makes me feel like I'm not alone, so keep the comments coming please.

Today I thought I would share and explain my image board her. I want to articulate exactly what each picture represents to me so I don't forget in the future. I got the pictures for my board from clippings from magazines. I found a great quote in a magazine that I want to use as my motto, "Always look on the Bright side." This is a great quote and means a lot to me. I tend to be a pessimist. The thing I struggle with is putting a positive spin on things and not sabotage myself before I even begin. I think keeping this in mind will help me.

The images on my vision board represent many things to me. The cute clothes represent the clothes I will be able wear when I reach my goal weight. I am always admiring clothes store windows, only to walk in and they don't come in plus sizes. The sexy neglige represents how I want to look sexy. Which goes with the happy couple in bed, that represents how I want to fall in love and get a boyfriend. I haven't been in too many relationships before and I want to get a into another one, but first I want to feel good about myself again.

The woman in the mirror represents how I want to feel happy about myself on the inside and on the outside. I want to like the way that I look when I look in the mirror and not be disgusted with what I see. The arrow hitting an apple represents to me my quest toward eating healthy foods. The pile of food on the side represents this too. The girl biking represents me getting in shape and getting more active. I want to be able to bike seven miles when I go to Door County this summer. My mom said that if I can bike a seven mile trail up there, then she will give me $50. I am leaving next Friday, so that is a huge motivator to me.

The woman jumping in the air looks happy, like I want to be. The woman looking to the right represents looking positively to the future, which I want to do. I want to make small, achievable goals. I also want to look forward to all the benefits I will get once I lose the weight.

The money in the jar represents how I want to save money and pay off my debts, which leads to the picture of the apartment building. The building represets my desire to become independent and move out of my parents house. If I can lose weight maybe I can find a job, I think my weight is holding me back in that respect.

Well that is what my vision board represents to me. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog,

    Putting it somewhere that you view it everyday is essential. I like that you have a lot of personal things that you want to achieve for yourself.Apartment,financial independence and of course eating and exercise. You have all the bases covered. I have mine in my exercise area. It was healthy people,working out ,running. It has excuses I use to not work out. It has my progress for every month since I started. it has my motivational songs and words of encouragement. It is next to a mirror so I have to look at myself whether I want to or not. I even talk to the person in the mirror giving him encouragement. You can achieve your goals. See it, Be it, achieve it. emoticon

    That was absolutely BRILLIANT of you to verbally describe what each of the images symbolically represents, and you are SO going to be able to remember your starting thoughts so much better this way... even if you get to a point where you say to yourself, "Hmmm, I wonder why I thought THAT way back then!!!"

    It's a journey, a lifestyle, and you are on your way to success!
