Well folks, I've been thinking again. Dangerous, I know. :)
One thing that I've been thinking about is my target weight when I'm done. It's such a beautifully torturous thing...isn't it? You can't wait to get there, and yet it constantly haunts you until you ARE there. Ha.
I realized today after reading some posts and having an honest little chat with myself that I haven't been working very hard at this weight loss thing really. I've been huffing and puffing like I'm working hard, but to be honest, I haven't been. I'm not super motivated. I mean, I WANT to be skinny, but other than that, nothing is really pushing me to get there. And we all know how far wishing gets us- not far at all.
So what can I do to change my game? I think I would shift into a higher gear if I could start "seeing" the finished product. The target goal- what would I look like once I get there? I'm talking Visualization people. Visualization.
The problems I've had with Visualization in the past is that I always pick these unrealistic women to "visualize" as myself, and then when I don't get there, I'm frustrated. Or I recognize I'll probably never really get there. Or I'm having a hard time making the connection that THAT could be ME.
However, I do have some thoughts/opinions of what looks good and healthy, vs what's too skinny and unhealthy. So I originally posted pics of what I think looks healthy and good (and what the beauty industry deems "plus size") and what looks unhealthy to me. However, I have to admit, I got this idea from someone else's post and she does such a better job of explaining it than I do, that I've decided to just add a link to her blog and let you look at hers instead. It's a GREAT post. Check it out. http://redmokr.blogspot.com/2010/02/plus-size-models-are-beautiful.html
