      Quite accidentally, I came across [Link Removed] today. The contest ends today, but if you hurry you might still get an entry or two in.

      What really got me excited, though, is the website it is advertising, and how much motivation this could provide to so many people who have taken on the challenge to reshape their bodies.

      If you visit the WeightView mall and share a current picture with them, they can show you a pretty fair representation of what you will look like after your weight loss!

      I'm probably not explaining that very well, but if you visit [Link Removed] it will explain it all brilliantly.

      There’s no cost for registering and getting your reduced-you picture. It says it will take about 48 hours to email the picture to you.

      Even though I'm not quite ready to share my before pictures with the world, I think this could be a cool exercise to have before, *projected* and actual when we're all done. Be fun to see how accurate they were?

      So anyway, I thought I would share this site. I’m looking for inspiration everywhere and it’s working well for me. I love our encouragement calls and look forward to reporting in next week. Sunday will be the end of week 2 for me!

      Have a great weekend!

        • Heather I saw that the other day and wondered if I could recreate my fat self so I’d have the before picture. LOL

          Along those lines Visuals are so important. The eyes are not just windows to the soul, the stimulate our brains in ways we don’t even fully understand.

          If you are serious about losing weight having visuals will propel you there faster. Either use the pictures that you can create from that site, or find some old ‘perfect body shape you’ pictures... or even cut out pictures of a body you want to one day have, and paste your head onto it. Don’t laugh!!! I am serious.
          Just try it. You need 3 pictures - one for your fridge, one for your car dash(if you drive much), one for your bathroom mirror. If you don’t put one in the car, put it beside your bed... or where you exercise. You can also print off on 3×5 cards words of affirmation. Many of you have heard my favorite saying...
          NOTHING tastes as good as THIN feels. Print that it big bold letters and put it on your cabinet door or fridge.  

          Your eyes can help to train your brain for success. There are other things that need to be addressed (like emotional eating) but starting with visuals can really ramp you your commitment. You don't even have to believe it will help you - if you do it, it will!
