Secrets of Success

Realize That Somone Out There Has More To Lose...



At first this might sound demeaning/degrading (and it might be), but it worked for me. I felt like I had such a far way to come weight-loss wise that I needed to look at pictures of people who had more to lose than me. So I google imaged various phrases like "fattest woman", "800 pound woman", etc. Seeing that at least I wasn't THAT big made me realize that I can do this! :)

    I emailed my own "BEFORE" pictures that I had my husband take of me wearing a string bikini (with the strings reaching much farther than ever intended, looking incredibly demeaned, defeated, and depressed) so that I could peek on my phone in times of weakness with the caption "Put down your elboy and close your mouth." IT WORKED, AND STILL WORKS,WONDERS for me!!! However, I just don't have the grit to post them on SP for "the world" to see, despite being only 3 pounds away from my FINAL goal...and actually being able to wear the string bikini bathing suit again.
