Okay, ladies — how are your New Year’s weight loss resolutions or goals going?!?
On January 1st, we told you all about a fantastic site designed to help you lose weight through Visual Motivation called www.weightview.com.
The idea is simple. And it is FREE! You send in a photo of yourself and tell them your weight loss goal. They modify the photo to show you what you could look like after you reach your goal.
You use that “after” photo to motivate you to lose weight.
We also love that, since support from friends is key to your success, the weightview site has a great community where you can share your journey and have fun while getting healthy.
We even had three of our 5 Minutes for Mom readers be our TESTERS and sign up at www.weightview.com and submit their photos.
We promised to follow these ladies and check in with them at the end of the month to see how much closer they are to their goals.
And now, it is check in time…
Angela — MamaBearGetsChatty
The only time I was ever really slender was when I was single and B.C. (before child).
I want to be healthy for my 15 year old son, my 2 year old son (whom we are in the process of adopting), and for my husband.
I’m actually starting a “15% Club”, and have blogged about it at MamaBearGetsChatty.blogspot.com. I’ve invited any woman who wants to lose 15% of their weight or more, to come and join me on this journey to health, energy, and being able to shop for clothes that aren’t “plus sizes”!
I really like www.weightview.com.
It’s so motivational for me! I can look at that photo, and think “That’s going to be me in just a few months!”
This has motivated me so much, that I have started a “club” for gals who want to lose at least 15% of their weight. It’s called “The 15% Club”.
We have a private blog that only “club members” can view and post on. Some of the gals have even submitted their own “before” picture to www.weightview.com!
Shelly — Write For A Reader
On my blog, I review books — mostly children’s books, but also YA, and adult titles.
I have never been small, weight wise, but because I am tall I can carry more weight. About 3 months ago, I started to notice that my body was taking on a different shape, and my pants started to fit differently.
So, I decided that, Jan. 1, I was going to do something, anything. That’s when I heard about weightview.com from 5 Minutes for Mom and knew that was the motivation I needed.
WeightView is a great site!
The submission process was a breeze. Once I logged on, I was walked through each step and found it very user friendly. All in all, it took me less than 10 minutes to set up a profile, add my pic and get started.
It has been motivating to have the before picture instead of just a goal in my head. I have that “look” staring me in the face and the thought that I don’t want to look like that anymore.
WeightView sends out motivating newsletters to help keep you going, and I’ve found that helpful as well.
So far, I’ve lost 11 pounds, even with cheating now and then. Thank you for sharing this site with me.
Michelle — Michelle’s Family Journal
I hope to lose 35 lbs give or take 5 or 10 lbs. I plan to eat more salads, fruits and vegetables and go to the gym while DD is in pre-school or art class. My after picture is the incentive that I need for motivation.
Join me on my weight loss journey as I blog about it at Michelle’s Family Journal
I do find that WeightView is helping me to lose weight,
I’ve done very well if I say so myself at not buying junk food but eating fresh fruit and vegetable. I have avoided pop for the most part which is hard it’s like the cup of coffee to other people.
I look forward to spending a lot more time browsing www.weightview.com in the evenings when I’ve time to look at exercise and meals that are low fat.
I want to have more energy for chasing and keeping up with my daughter. Plus I’m tired of being asked “When are you due?!”
