Reaching Goal Weight With “Your Big Picture”
At this point, you probably have some idea of how much weight you want to lose. Can you see yourself at that weight? It’s probably pretty awesome, isn’t it? Having that picture in your mind of what life will be like when you get there. That is “Your Big Picture”. When you think about “Your Big Picture” (YBP for short), it’s not just about your appearance though. It also has to do with what you are doing in your life. How you are interacting with other people. How you feel inside. Your confidence level. Wherever your imagination takes you.
The Three Components
To create YBP you need 3 things:
- A goal
- Know all the reasons why you want to reach that goal
- Know what changes you will notice when you reach your goal
This whole process creates YBP. This picture with its 3 components is why you are doing all this work. Reminding yourself of this along the way is powerful motivation to keep going. That picture in your mind is worth it!
We’ve talked about motivation. When you have had a bad day and life isn’t exactly going to plan, it’s helpful to think about that picture of yourself. It can be just the gentle push you need. This is a lifestyle change. The final result you picture will give you the incentive to keep moving forward by taking all the things you have learned and keep applying them. “Your Big Picture” is flexible too. It’s not written in stone. Things come and go in your life and you can adjust YBP accordingly. Chances are, with all the things you will be
Keeping “Your Big Picture” On The Radar
What can help remind you of YBP? A version of YBP in written form. Put it down on paper and have it somewhere you can see it. Post it on your fridge, your bulletin board, frame it! I have mine taped inside the front page of my journal. Post it on your desktop wallpaper, your phone screen, or to your tablet screen. Somewhere you are likely to run into it on a daily basis. Every Monday, I make a point of reviewing mine. In a room by myself, I take it out and read it aloud. Really take it in. It’s really cool when you realize you aren’t at goal yet, but you have already seen changes come to reality! It gives you an amazing source of satisfaction in your efforts! You know you will make it!
