I have a bunch of pictures of my family and friends and I up on my fridge.. Most of them were taken a few years back but I loved how I looked then! I don't know how much I weighed back then.. but my goal is to get back to looking that again!

But actual pictures of yourself at a point you've been at before and know you can get to again? That should be very inspiring!
I agree with this. I mean, no matter how much I lose, I will never look like Angelina Jolie. However, if I get to my target weight, I COULD actually look like me at my target weight, so I'd say putting up some pics of yourself could be healthy and helpful. I have pics of me around from when I was in high school and on the cross country team (which was not actually my lowest weight, but was probably best in terms of body composition).

Great idea! I actually keep a photo of my 'bad' self on my blackberry so when I am heading for a snack or skipping the gym I look at it and I quickly change my mind (when I remember it's there). Check out my blog - I actually posted something about this yesterday - I am using myself as my motivation (a skinny pic) as opposed to some unrealistic airbrushed model!!

I'm really surprise that so many people do what Shan does. I do it too! I have weight loss tickers, pictures; you name it inconspicuously place throughout the house as reminders.

Ok so I started with putting my skinny pics up and then i realized that i didnt have that many..LOL so i blew a few up and then copied a few smaller ones off so i had them and i put them in the bathroom, by the mirror, fridge, freezer down stairs( that is where all the ice cream is) and then in our bedroom. It looks funny to see the pictures all blown up and around the house but it honestly does give me modivation to get my butt moving in the right direction..

I think its a great idea. Seeing thinner pictures of myself is actually what made me jump back into this and realize I CAN do it.

I hung up my goal out fit in my closet. So I see it every day. It's been helping.

My bf did something similar with the picture idea for me. Last week we were surfing through some old photos on facebook and a picture of me from a few years ago when I was packbacking through central America came up. I had the biggest smile on my face and just looked so obviously happy. I've been going through a rough time lately. The next day my bf showed up with the picture in a frame and said I'm going to do everything I can to make you smile like that again. So the picture is there to help me focus on making myself better over all, not just weight wise, but mentally as well.
