Travel with me back in time, will you? (I seem to be doing this more and more the older I get.)
The date is July 27, 2005, just a few days after my 29th birthday. I have a 6 week old baby boy. I’m 191 lbs, embarking on yet another weight loss attempt. I’ve been attending Weight Watcher meetings and I start a small web site to track my progress.
One of the first things I do on this new site is post an image of my virtual model. Click here to read my old posts from the first year!
Why? Well it was a great motivator for me to see what I may look like at my goal weight. Sometimes it’s easy to lose site of our goals, especially when we may not be able to see the big picture.
So I used a 3D model to do it, some people may use old photos of themselves or maybe even a picture of an outfit they really want to wear. There’s also a new online tool at WeightView.com where you can upload one of your own photos and Weight View will show you what you may look like after losing 20lbs. Pretty cool!
As always this long winded intro brings me this weeks question(s). First do you think visualizing weight loss is important and if so, how do you do it?
P.S. Posting this link brought me back and I ended up reading all of my old journal entries. I had tears streaming down my face, My gosh! I’m such a sap.
