Default Dream/inspiration/vision board

Do any of you have a visual board that you have collected images of what you want to look like... what you want life to be... what drives you?
I am thinking about creating one for myself on pinterest, but am struggling to get started.
I want a visual representation of what I am striving for. Something I can look at to remind myself of what I am battling for. I just don't know where to start.
Help me?

I have a pinterest dream board. It includes motivational quotes/lyics, bucket list activities, clothing styles I dream of wearing, and ideas for a tattoo I want to get when I reach goal.

i use my before pictures and have them as my desktop wallpaper on my home computer. nothing like having all of you pixelated on dual 24" monitors to help with motivation and inspiration on moving forward.

Pinterest, google, tumblr, etc. Just do a search for what you're looking for.

Pumpkin, that sounds like pretty hardcore inspiration right there. You have done amazingly so far.

My problem is that I want images to represent what I want my life to be, but I am struggling to picture it. What kinds of clothes will I want to wear? What will I enjoy?

Being fit and healthy is such a foreign concept... I am so impatient for it.

Are there any activities you've thought "I'd love to do that!" but thought you were too overweight or out-of-shape or whatever? Those kind of things work for bucket list activities. Like, I have always wanted to go ziplining....but I had these horrible images of the harness snapping because I was too d*mn fat and I went sailing out into the forest and splattered to my death. So, yeah, ziplining is on my bucket list.

For clothing, find out what is the best style for your body type. This is one site where you can learn more about your body type. They also have a pinterest account with boards for each different body type. Once you know what styles of clothing are best for you, starting hunting for examples of those types of things.

I've started a pinterest board and have stumbled across the reasonstobefit tumblr page. Inspiration found!

Thanks, Novus. I am going to check those pages out.

No inspiration board, just a pair of Size 14 skinny jeans with a really cute design that I picked up for 3 dollars at a thrift store hanging on my closet door. ONE DAY I WILL WEAR THEM COMFORTABLY AND CONFIDENTLY.
