Any famous people you draw inspiration from in this journey?
Well, does anyone here watch Real World/Road Rules Challenge : Inferno (or I guess used to watch Road Rules) and you know Holly from RR Latin America? OMG, she's so fit, I want to look like her someday!!! She's realistic and really fit, makes me want to work hard.

I've always wanted Linda Hamilton's arms in Terminator 2. And I would love to look as fit as Alicia from Survivor. Does she count as a famous person??

I can't compare myself to anyone else - it makes me obsessive and mental. I just want to be the very best me I can be.

Since I see Alicia every week - she is my "I wish" body of the moment.

For me it's Oprah. She's struggled with her weight forever, and I can relate to that. I think she's looking fabulous at 50.

OMG, Apryl you are scaring me...I was thinking the same thing...and was gonna post the same exact question...weird eh?
First off, Jennelle you and I seem to have similar issues with compulsiveness, obsessiveness, etc....so I can totally relate to you not wanting to compare yourself to anyone else. But for me...I look at it as more as a tool...and make it use for me not against me. I use these icons as someone I want to be just like....only better, because it is me;)
Anyhoo....Since I am a very visual person....this is a big part of my success (not just with weight loss...) In my journal I cute out pictures of models all the time. But, I ususally cut off there heads...so I can mentally insert my head there..LOL
So, with that being said, here is my list.....and some I chose because I like their body shapes, some I chose because I like there tenacity, some I chose because I like their sassiness, and others because I want their success. I am a firm beleiver that positive breed positive...so that is why I srround myself with the following images, music etc.
Hilary Clinton (I don't particularly agree with her political views, but I like her because she is a successful lawyer, who is a good writer, stood by her man, a mom, and is successful with or without Bill)
Marilyn Monroe (I look like her, when I was at goal weight)
hmmmm...I know there is more, but that is all I can think of right now!!!!!
