    So, I thought I would share with yall one of my latest tricks that seems to keep me in line and motivated.

    A few years ago I purchased My Pet Fat, and it's awesome. It's a 1lb replica of 3,500 calories (which equals one pound of fat), and it's anatomically correct. So if you look at the blob, that's exactly what a pound of fat looks like. It's just disgusting!!! And so if I think about that cheeseburger or brownie and a few beers and some pasta, etc throughout the week, that's what I would add to my body. Gross. Totally totally gross.

    So the other day I had a genius idea to put My Pet Fat on top of my alarm clock so that every morning when I roll over and hit snooze, I see that 1lb of fat telling me to get my butt out of bed and workout! It totally works!

    It's also nice to visualize weight loss. I know sometimes we're disappointed in a 2 pound loss, etc but looking at that blob makes me realize that at least it's not part of my anymore!

    So I thought this might give those looking for motivation something different to look at. Print the picture out and put it on your fridge, on the treadmill, next to your alarm clock, or go out and buy your own. It was worth it to me, and it's totally working.

    Oh, and check out the 5lb Pet, it's just disgusting, so that's a great one to gauge weight loss as well...think about the fact that if you lose 5 pounds, you've removed that blob from your body...entirely!

    Enjoy!

        Ha ha, that's awesome and a great idea! That would be very motivating, I think I am going to look into getting one or definitely printing off a picture!

          Thanks for posting that, that gets me motivated! As I'm eating a handful of caramel corn...which by the way Shelly is your fault! You posted that popcorn bar thread so I had to go out and get some caramel corn for an afternoon meeting snack. Everyone else appreciates it here though

                I know, I wanted the 5lb for effect, but was shocked at the prices...but the 1lb was worth it for me...I'm sure I've wasted $45 on nasty food before in my lifetime!

                  That is awesome! I love it. And I love how much it motivates you - hey, whatever it takes! Definitely a different perspective than counting calories!
                  Sometimes when I'm at the gym lifting 5 lb. weights I think about how liberating it would be to remove that amount of weight from my body. After 3 knee surgeries already, I think about how much extra stress it is running or walking around with that all day...
