Weight Loss Motivation: If You Don’t Know Where You’re Going…

“If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up somewhere else”.

–Yogi Berra

One of the keys to achieving your weight loss goals is to be absolutely clear on what you’re working for.

You have to know exactly what you’re working for, or “…you’ll end up somewhere else.”

Be clear on what you want. Grab some magazines and find a picture of what you want your body to look like. Cut it out, paste a picture of your face on it and put it on the fridge.

Silly? Maybe, but it works.

The clearer the picture you have of your goal, the greater the chance is that you’ll achieve it. Make the picture come to life in your head. How will it feel? What will your friends and family say to you when you achieve it? What will it be like to walk down the street in your new, slimmer body? Picture yourself trying on new, smaller-sized clothes. Get excited by all the possibilities.

Keep it in your mind constantly. Live it, breathe it, believe it. Make it come to life!

If your mind can see it, you can achieve it!

Believe in your future, believe in your ability, believe in yourself.

And know that I believe in you, too.

    Brian, I agree with you, visualization is a powerful technique to utilize in weight loss (or any goals). It’s fun to photoshop your head onto another body, too, and display it where you can see it everyday (especially in your signature if you belong to an online support forum).

    WTG on your weight loss, 60lbs is awesome!

    No problem, it’s (Photoshop) is fun to play with, as well as giving you an excellent visualization of how you will look at your goal weight. 🙂

    All the best,
