BLC 17: Visual Motivators (with pictures)

Friday, February 08, 2013

Excuse the terrible pictures... I REALLY need a new camera!

This is the visual motivator that I made for BLC 16. There are 107 pink gem thingys; the jar on the left has 1 gem per pound that I still need to lose (currently 44) and the jar on the right has 1 gem per pound that I have lost (currently 63). It is so satisfying every time I get to move a gem from the jar on the left to the one on the right!! Oh, and sorry about the huge amazon box in the background- I didn't even think about it being there until I uploaded the picture and my camera is such a hassle that I don't want to go retake it!

This is the visual motivator that I made for BLC 17. It is a picture of a thermometer with 10% increments listed. I added in 5%, as well (I didn't want to have to lose a full 10% of my weight to get to color each section in!). Basically, I pencilled in how much I need to lose to hit every 5% of the total weight I want to lose (100% being 107 pounds), then I wrote the dates when I hit the weight loss. I'm working on being 60% down right now (63/64.2 lbs). The only thing I don't like about this is that whoever made the template has things like, Frozen (up to 10%) and Tepid (40-50%). I personally feel like anyone who has lost 40-50% of the weight that they are wanting to lose is doing great... not tepid. Losing even 5% of your goal is awesome, not "frozen." But whatever! I like to color. emoticon

    This is great! I searched Visual Motivators and came across your blog. I was looking for something fun to do and I think I've found it. How good it will feel to reach in and transfer the items from one vase to another!

    Thank you for sharing! Can't wait to go to Hobby Lobby tonight and buy some! emoticon

    I've still got to figure out what my visual motivator will be. I might think up something tomorrow. These are good ideas. You have lost an amazing amount of weight!
