Keep your EYE ON THE BALL. What is the goal?Will this action get you closer?
slowly but surely.

not suggesting I can't visualise at all but would not with a loss of that magnitude. don't know how long it took him so maybe he did it in manageable stages, plus exercise, etc.

stocked up on healthy food yesterday. a bowl of fruit is much more appealing as dessert during hot weather.

paolina. i'm surprised. meditating seems to me to prepare for visualization. you don't have so much to lose!

I've read his story before but I don't think I am capable of visualising such huge changes.

My fridge is not bad. there are some chocolates in there but they are not for me and
I'm not tempted. will clear it out tomorrow and shop on Thursday.

Tried on clothes for Xmas Day and found one outfit that was too tight for comfort. Nowhere to hang it in kitchen but can put it on outside of wardrobe where I'll see it.

Will aim for 10th January.

I've read a lot about motivating this morning and I've seen something that I think may help...but first, let's get into the kitchen!

I know at this time of year, during the holidays, it's particularly hard to eat right and keep good things in the pantry. This week, just before the start of the new year, your challenge will be to clean out your pantry and refrigerator. Get rid of the foods that sabotage your weight loss. They may still be hanging around from a holiday or family gathering...or you may be prepping for some tempting desserts & cookies for a summer cookout. Let's get those things OUTTA there!

Next, motivate yourself! Get a pair of jeans or pants or a dress or whatever that is too tight and hang them in the kitchen instead of the closet to keep yourself inspired. That's right, I said hang them in the kitchen. Too much in the way? If you once fit in them, use a picture of you IN the skinny clothes and post it on the frig instead OR buy or take a picture of the item you WANT to fit in and hand or post it. Put a date by it....that's what you're shooting for!

Here are 5 tips to visualizing:
