Same thing here! It felt great to be moving on...

I have to suggest an all time favorite of mine - Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea. This is about a girl who lived in a time which most women were expected to grow up and run a household. She overcame a lot of disappointments, ridicule, and hardships and grew up accomplishing a lot (and found love at the same time). Every time I watch these movies, I feel so inspired. Good for an all day movie fest as they are both long movies.

Other movies I'd suggest are "A Beautiful Mind," "The Day the Earth Stood Still," Making an American Quilt."

To get some great laughs at the same time, try "Pirates of the Caribbean." (the first one).

I just moved on up too and feeling great!

Kas, have you seen Bridge to Terabithia? Kind of a tear jerker, but one of the main themes is that ANYTHING can happen when you keep your mind wide open.

I created a Visula Motivation Board a few weks ago and I just keep changing and adding to that. It's a combination bulletin borad/greaseboard that I have in my bathroom. I posted old photos of me at my goal weight and put notes next to them about what physical activities I was doing then (rollerblading, horseback riding, skiing. I have my various goals and dates listed with encouraging tags next to each like, "1997 weight!" "Halfway there!" "Only 10 pounds to go!" I have cut out photos and sayings from magazines, one of a woman who lost 200+ pounds and I wrote "If she can do it, you can do it!"

I moved to stage 3 a couple of days ago. I have done the picture motivation page - quote and trying to figure out a movie to watch.

Any ideas other than the ones they gave us?

I moved up last night and found it really interesting to see what things are motivating me to lose weight. There was more out there than I realized. I will need to work on my visuals and my motivating movies. I already have one movie that has always been a motivator for me. I also need to find that one quote that really speaks to me. I haven't found one yet, but I know there is one out there for me.
