I'm not a fan of weight-loss tv shows...


... but I caught an episode of MTV's show I Used To Be Fat.  I still don't care for it but I did find something super motivating about it:

the countdown calendar!!

Basically it's a desk-sized calendar that has HUGE BOLD numbers top with the words "days left" under the number and each day the top sheet of paper would be town off... just a simple countdown to whatever event the people on the show are working towards.  Well I want one!

I have my first class reunion coming up this summer - 142 days to be exact - so I need a simple, cheap, daily reminder that I need to get 'er done!  Nutrition and exercise need to be pounded out everyday if I even wanna think of going to the reunion.  Keep in mind that today I'm 35+ lbs. heavier than I was in high school so there's a lot of work to be done but it's doable.

I'm heading out to Kinko's today to see what they can do for me! YAY!

the count down calender is a good idea. I do my calender backwards from that. I mark off the days each day that I've worked out/eaten well. I like to see thos red "x"s adding up

If Kinko's can't help out, you can get a HUGE art sketch tablet and make your own! I've seen the show and thought it was cool as well.

But in my point of view weight loss pills are not safe for weight loss program. The count down calender idea is good and effective when you can control your diet chat.
