MOTIVATION! The Power of Progress Photos

Are you finding it difficult to stay on track with your fitness goals?  Staying motivated is essential to achieve any fitness or weight loss goal.  A great way to stay focused is to take weekly progress photos of yourself.  It's highly rewarding to see the results of your dedication to living a fit lifestyle.  We look at ourselves differently in photos than we do when we look in the mirror.  It's an awesome feeling to see your progress and to keep you laser focused on your goals.

Keeping a diet and workout journal is also highly motivating, you can print and paste your progress photos in your journals to keep a better record of your accomplishments.  You will be amazed at how your physique transforms as you keep track of your progress photos.  It's also fun to look back and see just how far you've come in a relatively short amount of time (if you workout regularly).  You may also find that living a fit lifestyle is a lot of fun and you may become as passionate about it as I am!

You can take progress photos with your cell phone, that's what I do each week, the photos of me above were taken a few days ago.  By taking your own photos you won't be embarrassed about someone else taking your picture or you can have a family member take photos of you with a digital camera. 

Having progress photos is another great way to log your fitness progress.  You can upload your photos on many diet and weight loss sites online as well.  How you keep track is up to you, there is no right or wrong way to do it.

So make it a point to take a progress photo of yourself at least once every week or two.  When you reach your short term goals reward yourself, you can buy a new pair of jeans or get a massage, you can do anything that makes you happy. 

As always, think & speak kindly of yourself and always believe in you!  Dreams really do come true!

Embrace Your Journey to Success
