In Weight Watchers, there are meeting topics every week, but the one that I use constantly is the visual motivator exercise. Basically, when you want to eat that big, greasy cheeseburger, you’re supposed to think of what you’d like to look like. This exercise is pretty effective if you have willpower. However, you can easily replace “Britney Spears” with “Rosie O’Donnell” and make it a double cheeseburger if you’d like. So, again- willpower=necessity.
Another must? A husband who doesn’t burn through food like it’s water. Thanks hon! You eat food, I look at the food= you lose weight, I am up a size. Peachy. Just peachy.
For the longest time, these were some of my visual motivators:
But, honestly, no matter how hard I try, I am NOT going to look like Britney Spears, Jessica Alba, or Megan Fox. Not gonna happen. So sorry Daniel, I know you had high hopes I would be smokin’ hot like these chicks, so I am just putting it out there. Not gonna happen. You can divorce me whenever you’d like. I should have disclosed this earlier.
Lately, there has been quite a stir about the naked plus sized models in Glamour’s November issue. And by plus size, they mean anything above a size 6 (or 8). Yeah. So, you over there, Miss Size 6- You’re plus sized. You didn’t know?! Shucks.
The girls are GORGEOUS. And NORMAL looking. Not saying Britney Spears is not normal looking or gorgeous, but her physique is simply unattainable for most of us. (Right? If you know how to look like Britney, please let me know).
Here’s the pic:
Then, I started thinking that I’ve been looking at the wrong sort of visual motivators all along. I should look at something that might actually be possible. Now I present to you my new visual motivators:
Much more attainable, realistic, and dare I say attractive? They’re curvy, they eat, they are still sexy, and they look healthy. It’s a win-win situation!
