Meditation is great for so many reasons - relaxation, stress relief, focus, mind/body connection, etc.

So is visualization. I like combining them, doing some visualization both before and after a short meditation.

If anybody wants a great little site for mindfulness meditations, these are free online from UCLA (in English and Spanish) and I like them a lot. Different lengths and different types of meditations, as short as 3 minutes, no longer than 19 minutes:

it's really hard to not overly focus on the number (I am in a bit of a plateau right now). maybe also visualize how you'll FEEL and what other things you'll be able to do (for me, I want to get back into dancing and try some watersports).

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!


Next goal: -38-40 by 10/18

Wish you keep it up this year! Visualization is a very effective tool unfortunately underestimated by many people. It helped me a lot when I decided to change my career and now it's helping me to lose weight!
