Is this Weird?

So I am a little overweight, but have had no motivation to take it off. Well my company moved everyone around and so I have been introduced to several new faces. One lady is a bit older and very heavy set...but she looks like what I think I'll look like when I get old if I don't keep the weight off. Everytime I see her I want to just run. I have NEVER been so motivated in my life! I have been eating right and exercising more. To keep up the motivation I want to look through our company pictures and sneakily take one of her and print it off to hang on my fridge and bathroom mirror. Is that weird? I just am so scared now of ever looking like that:( I lost 5 pounds last week.

  • No. Sometimes you need that kind of reality check in order to do what needs to be done. Just don't let her know she's your inspiration. Haha

  • Nah. People use other people as motivation to lose weight all the time. They hang pictures of skinny people and say, "I want to look like that." I don't think it's any different for you to see an obese person and think, "I DON'T want to look like that!"

  • Yes, it is weird. . What if someone has printed your photo and is hanging on their frig, hugh???? Take a picture of yourself and put it on your frig it just may give you more incentive.
