Crafty Visual Aides For Goals

I am a visual person and I love being creative, so I combined the two so I can have fun seeing my progress! I'm doing 2 different visuals. The top pictures are of a 12x12 sheet of graph style scrapbook paper and my goal picture of what size I want to be. I cropped my 12x12 pictures to 11x11 because that makes 121 squares  For each lb. I loose, I cut 1 square to stick on the graph (like a puzzle). When I get to my weight loss goal, my picture will be complete! You don't have to use a picture,  you could write out the 121 and cut it up, or a pic of whatever your goal is and put a piece each day you succeed!

My 2nd visual aide is I started with 1/2-1 inch wide scraps 12 inches in length, then I cut more. I started adding 1 link for each pound lost. 22 links fits across my closet doorway, so I can see it will be going 1/2 way around my scrap room by the time I finish! But that's ok, it's a good visual and really makes me feel like I've come a long way!

 Today I was down -22 lbs so far this month!! I'm very excited to get to my end goal of -121 lbs! I was excited for the 1st time in many years, I put on my newly washed sweatshirt and didn't have to stretch it out to fit!
