Write Your Vision for Weight Loss

We all know the power of having a clear vision, right?
I mean, just take it literally. If you have a 20/20 eyesight, you see things clearly. This is the same clarity that serves as our motivation for important change plans such as losing weight.

To lose weight per se is not really a goal. It is an instrument that leads to a goal. So, what is it? Why do you want to lose weight? Why do you want to be slender? The number on the weigh scale is not as relevant as your vision of yourself.

For some people, losing weight means a healthier, more successful, more good looking self. But your vision has to be clear, concise, and concrete. By that we mean not just being healthy but preventing diabetes; not just more successful but getting the promotion; not just more good looking but sexier with glowing skin. What do you want to happen to you?

In fact, it helps if you do not just write, but have a clear image of yourself as you envisioned it to be. You can get a friend who is good with Photoshop and ask him to create this image for you. Print it and paste this vision on your wall. Make it your screensaver. Place a photo in your wallet.

It works three ways: it drives you to get motivated to pursue your goals; it encourages you of the possibility; and it helps you believe that you deserve a better life.


Wise Words

Nature gave men two ends – one to sit on and one to think with. Ever since then man’s success or failure has been dependent on the one he used most George R. Kirkpatrick

Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall. Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And this is all life really means.
-Robert Louis Stevenson

Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.

-Tad Williams

“When you were born, you were crying and everyone around “When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.”


I thought growing up was something that happened automatically as you got older. But it turns out it’s something you have to choose to do. – TV show Scrubs
