Secrets of Success

Keep The Picture



When I turned 30 I lost 36 pounds. I maintained it for two years. I did so by keeping my fat pictures. My first thought was to throw the one I had used as my motivator to lose away. But I kept it. I looked at it when I "forgot" what I had looked like. I was derailed that time. But this time, I think I will have an 8X10 made up and post it on the fridge!

    I have my "fat" picture on my SparkPage, one 5X7 on my fridge, one 5X7 on my office wall and one wallet size in my purse. The wallet size comes out often and people will ask me, "Who is that?" It's wonderfully motivational to never forget where you don't want to return! - by BEMORESTUBBORN
