Question Why that ticker??

I have enjoyed seeing all the different tickers and was very excited when I first got mine. It was hard to settle on one ticker because there were so many choices. It set me to wondering why people choose the tickers they choose.

With mine, the footsteps were easy to choose. I see life as a journey, or trek, with many turns and paths. Right now, I am on the path of healthy living and weight loss. The chick was harder to choose. I considered some sweet looking characters because I am basicly a sweet person (at least I hope). But I settled on what I first thought was a rather mad looking chick. I decided the chick is determined rather than angry.

So my ticker means that I am a determined chick on the path of healthy living and weight loss. I will get to the end of the road!

Why did you select your ticker? What does it mean to you?

My ticker...I like small and discreet. I also love the moon and sun. So, that was a no brainer. I like the star because duh, I like stars, too. Also, it's like a celebration whenever I move it.

The other ticker was just the best I could do without repeating the whole motif again.

My tickers change based on what I am tracking. Normally, they are associated with the time of year. For instance, this minigoal is a Valentine's Day one. Hence, the hearts!

I constantly change my tickers. I love switching it up!

Heather,

I love the way you list your mini goals. I may just copy that one!

I have changed my ticker few times. I like this one right now because I am on the Blue Team for The Biggest Looser Challenge and I just like the simplicity of it.

I love the lacey looking ticker and love bugs and crawly things. For those of you that like tattoos...I'm seriously thinking of getting my ticker tattoo'd on my ankle when I'm at goal. (I have tattoo's and really love them!)

It was a V-Day challenge so hearts, and the pig was pink and cute, so I picked it. That's about all the thought that went into mine!

I liked the look of the swirls and I chose blue because I am surronded by all men in my house! The four leaf clover is because we are all Irish.

I choose my ultimate goal ticker because it is representative of a journey... day to night. The slider reminds me of fireworks so when I reach goal it will be like fireworks in the nights sky.

My mini goal tickers are related to usually a holiday or season.

Well a big motivator for me is getting to ride horses again so my ticker was the best representation of that I found.

I got mine at tickerfactory because I was too impatient to wait for my 3FC one - I used to paste it in the bottom of my posts before I got my signature rights here on 3FC.

I got mine because I like flowers and the bee seemed to go along with the flowers.
