Secrets of Success

Visual Motivation



Over 70 lbs. of cat/dog food. This is what my weight loss goal is, over 70 lbs. I could hardly lift all these bags of food to put in my trunk for the trip home from the store. As I shed each10 lb goal, I'll set aside a bag of the cat/dog food, then when I've reached my final goal, will donate all to the Shelter. It's eye-opening to visually see and feel what over 70 lbs outside of the body is~and then think of this inside my body. Motivates me to get rid of it!!

  • That's a great idea. I buy 50 pound dogs of dog food and can barely lift one. I could do the same and donate some to our shelters as well. Thanks! - by BOHANK
  • Great idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - by PIPER99
  • That is an awesome idea. I've already thought about the fact that my weight loss goal consists of about 3 of my three-year old son's current weight. But I love your kitty litter visual reminder. It must feel good to physically put each of those 2o pound jugs aside each time you drop 20 pounds.
