I'm not sure how I got this idea. It just popped into my head this morning.
I wish to lose twenty pounds. I have already lost some, but I have twenty more to go, and have no more ambition/willpower/drive. I thought I'd make myself a little motivational buddy. I went back a few posts to that purple fleece stuffed turtle I had made and made a mini version. Then I made four more shells. Each one represents five pounds that I want to lose. Every time I lose five pounds, I will remove a shell until I reach my cute little goal turtle.
I figure this should give me the kick in the butt I need because I made it public and I'm not showing the other layers until I reach them! Hopefully you guys will want to see my turtle and that will keep me motivated. In theory anyway.
I gave titles to each layer. But just to be clear, I don't think of myself in these terms. No self esteem issues here, I just needed to call the layers something.
