I've read part of Napolean Hill's book: "Think and Grow Rich", and I believe this incredible book can be adapted to anything you want. So, I have come up with my own "clear, consise statement" of the amount of weight that I want to lose instead of the amount of money I want to obtain. I have posted this statement on my bedroom wall, office wall, blog home page, and gym wall, and I will read it every morning right after I wake up, and read it again in the evening just before bed. As I read it, I will see, feel, and believe that I have already lost the weight.

Pages 24, 25, and 62 were used to aid in the creation of my "clear, concise statement"
Here's my statement:
By the twenty-fifth of April two thousand and ten, I will have lost three hundred pounds.
In return for this weight loss, I will work my butt off, literally. I will follow my food plan, even when special occasions and holidays roll around. I will follow my walking and work out plan, even when I am tired and sore.
I believe that I will lose this weight. My faith is so strong that I can see myself stepping out of that Limo at Talladega. I see my new NASCAR shirt and hat that I purchased with Jack Sh*t’s nascar.com gift certificate. I can taste the one of many beers that will be consumed this beautiful day. I see Trent and me meeting drivers in the pits with those pit passes hanging on our necks. I hear the roar of the engines and smell the gas and burnt rubber. I see myself getting teary eyed thinking about what such a wonderful journey I had getting to Talladega. Also, I see myself thinking about all of the wonderful people that read and commented on my blog. I also see myself thinking about the 4 medals hanging in a shadow box frame on my wall at home from the four races that I walked.
