I'm looking forward to being able to buy a new wardrobe. Not that I'm into style, I just want to be IN smaller sizes! It's been a rough road. If (when) I ever conquer this, I'm going to be so excited, I'll probably start bawling.
But for right now, I just want to be 199.99 . lol

And we all lived happily ever after...

We can change hearts, by bringing up the next generation to embrace Life at an early age.

STRNGNGRNDED that sounds like a good goal to have. I've been trying to fit into clothes that were new 3 years ago! I just MUST do it...my closet is my collage too...

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

I didn't. In 2006 my goal was to fit into an outfit.
This goal is to fit into all of my old clothes; so my closet is my collage.

I have never made a collage for Spark. I am not sure what I would be doing.

Susan, what you did sounds great. I used to cut out motivational quotes, but I never got them into anything. Maybe I can try again. I'm sure I have a notebook/binder I can use to put them in.

TKTMTA I like your idea of putting them in a journal instead of a collage. Goals do change.

In my craft room I have two collages. The one for Sparking has one of my favorite pics of myself and some positive mottoes. The second is one for art. I chose scrapbook papers that I thought VERY beautiful and pinned those, along with pieces of lace that I love.
I enjoy making my own greetings cards and this board inspires me.

BUT...and I think Carol might like this version.

I bought a pink and black trapper keeper. In the front I inserted a zippered pocket for my measuring tape and some pens and index cards and whatnot.
I also inserted a spiral notebook for whatever I wanted to remind myself of. It has a section of all my measurements over the past two years.
Next, I inserted those plastic baseball card sheets.
On pieces of index cards (colorful and energetic ones that match sparkpeople) I write out a goal and insert it in a slot. Then, as I achieve various victories, I write those out also and insert them in chronological order. As I reach the GOALS, I insert them in the place that fits the timeline.
So I might put the various weights I'm trying to reach and stack them in one slot and pull them out when I reach them.
I did this for my 100 mile swim challenge, too. 25 miles earned an award, 50, 75, and 100 earned my name on a plaque at the YMCA.

In another section, I took those index cards and copied all these great motivational quotes and inserted them.
It is soooo fun to flip through this book, seeing my old goals, (some I even no longer had), seeing my achievements, and perhaps most important of all, reading those quotes that will keep me motivated for the long haul.

Love It!

And we all lived happily ever after...

I did years ago when I first started but I don't even know where it is any more because I've moved 2 times since then. I have started a fitness journal that I'm incorporating those kinds of things into on a monthly basis when I make my goals for the month and week.

No, I don't make those things. I'm not in the art category in any way, shape or form.

Randy, I'm right there with you on this. I did make one in 2010 when I joined SP. I hate to admit that I haven't even looked at it recently. I definitely need to update it.

Have you made a SP recommended collage? If so, do you look at it as a reminder of where you want to go? Do you need to update it?
