I love weight loss success stories. They are sources of inspiration to me and remind me that sustaining a major loss–true transformation–is possible.
Some of my favorite sources of weight loss inspiration:
1. The semi-annual People magazine cover stories that feature real people who have lost significant amounts of weight. The most recent weight loss cover story features a woman who lost over 100 pounds by following Weight Watchers!
2. The “You in Shape” section of Shape magazine. I’ve been getting Shape for years, and the section of success stories is the first place I turn when I get a new issue.
3. The “Success Stories” section of WeightWatchers.com. I love reading about people who have been successful on the plan I’ve chosen to follow. You can even customize a search to find people who have been in your situation — your age, the amount of weight you need to lose — and have met their goal.
What are your sources of inspiration for healthy living?
What other examples should I use to stay motivated, especially when the going gets tough?
