    Evening all!

    I this evening, after talking to Tasha had a little brain wave of an idea. The journey ahead sometimes seems really long, with 5 and a bit stone to go, I'm here for the long haul. And talking to Tasha I thought about all the things I've got coming up that I want to be a thinner me for. A holiday. Graduation. Lots of different things. The last couple of days while I've stuck 100%, it's been tempting, and I've had to remind myself of those things. So what I've done is created a background for my computer that's got a range of different things on there to motivate me. Quotes. Pictures. Dates and goals. Even a before photo!

    I think it's something that will help me, especially as I do a lot of work on my computer, so just thought I'd share in case anyone else wanted to do the same :)

    Unfortunately I am not technical, but it sounds like a great idea Caroline. I am sure it will help to motivate you - I need to think of something to motivate me! x

    Thats a great idea Caroline, we all need something to aim for and what a brilliant way to do it, and help us all keep focused.

    I've just booked a holiday in June to Fuerteventura for a week on my own, and want to feel confident enough to be by the pool in my bikini, so Im thinking of putting a picture of a normal (no size zeros for me), good body in a frame by my computer. May enough put my own head on it too! To show myself what I can achieve.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas x

    Good Luck Tasha with your goals. I am sure that Andreas' family would think you are wonderful right now, but I can understand that you would like that inner confidence we get when we know that we are looking our very best.
    Still thinking of some goals! x

    My boyf and I have agreed to set a date for our wedding when I get under 10 stone so that is my BIG incentive! I cant bear the thought of feeling ugly and fat on my wedding day :( !!

    Also, I want to be able to run around the park with my kids in the summer!!

    Good idea to think about out motivation!! I think its the difference between success and failure!! xxx

    I've got a long weekend in Amsterdam at the end of May which i'm hoping i'll have a more streamline frame for!! on day 11 and feeling really strong so think it'll be fine! Got other goals too, my friends wedding at the end of July which'll be the first time in 6 months that i would have seen all my friends from home having recently moved so want to be at goal weight by then!!! fingers crossed!

    Also just booked a trip to Florence in October for me and my mum and would be great if i had been maintaining for a couple of months by then! i figure the more to aim for, the more i'll keep on track!

    good luck to you all, loving this thread - this site seems to have helped me through all potential blips with everyone doing so incredibly well!!! so thanks to all!
