Imagine Yourself Thin...

Watching a few of Jorge's empowerment videos tonight. He says you should picture yourself at your goal weight and do it in detail. What are you wearing, what does your face look like, you eyes, your overall demeanor?

I always think of myself at age 21 when I think of myself being thin again. But I am not 21 anymore and I need to remind myself of that! I am 40 and a Mother and my body has changed. Let's face it, even 40lbs thinner I won't ever be that girl again!

I don't know why I like these photos of Star Jones. I'm not a black women, was never as large as she got and have never been in a feud with Barbara Walters or Rosie O'Donald. But I love how she looks in these photos. She looks like a smart women. She has curves. A small waist, but hips and a bust. She can wear a belt, and smile while doing it! She looks happy and like she could take on the world. "Move on over, I'm coming through!" Not overtly sexy, but she looks GOOD! Glue my head on this and lighten up the skin, and I want that!

I know, I know! She had gastric bypass and then plastic surgery to put those curves back into place. I know! But still, this is how I picture myself. I'm not going to look like a Victoria's Secret model, so I won't bother putting those pictures up here (Sorry to my few male readers). Maybe I should have loftier goals, I don't know. I'll work on that...

How do you picture yourself when you meet your weightloss goals?


  1. First off; I loved seeing your blog on Jorge's pre-minute video. It's been a great source of inspiration. I ordered Joseph's cookies online and they are pretty reasonable. You have to order at least 20 dollars of food. Shipping is free and I got 3 types of sugar-free cookies, maltitol, sugar free peanut butter and syrup. I thought it was very reasonable. The oatmeal cookies tasted a little dry to me, but I added about an 1/8 of a tsp of sugar free syrup and that hit the spot. It is great that you are tackling your belly now. Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks, that was so neat for him to do that! Unfortunately, I dont handle Maltitol well. So Ill be skipping the cookies. That is part of the reason I am semi obsessed with the Dark Chocolates. LOL

  3. Great blog and good info. Thanks, Amber. Here is a web site you (and others) might like to try:
    It's an instant weight loss/gain visualizer. You upload a picture and enter your desired weight and it spits out a new pic of a new you! Try it.

  4. All the alternative sugars suggested do not pass through the pancreas but go directly through the intestines, which is probably why so many people are having issues with this. After having read the many concerns, I'm afraid to try what I bought (stevia and xylotol), since I definetly do not have any problems in that department, and don't want to aggravate my intestines.

  5. Hi Jane, I cant stomach the -tols, but Stevia seems fine. I bought straight up Stevia and it is bitter. I just just got Sun Crystals. And use only a 1/3 packet during the day. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment! Always appreciated.
