My favourite piece of motivation!
In one jar you have either beads, or pennies, or pebbles, or buttons to represent the number of lbs you want to lose – the ‘pounds to lose’ jar. And in the other, you have ‘pounds lost’. After each weigh in there is nothing better than opening the ‘pounds to lose’ jar and transferring ‘lbs’ into your ‘pounds lost’ jar!
As I have a significant amount of weight to lose, I decided to buy small beads off eBay to represent my lbs…and they cost me less than £5. I then simply found two old jars – tomato purée ones in fact! – and cleaned them out, covered the lid in foil, and tied a pretty ribbon and label around the top. They now have pride of place on my mantlepiece. The only blip is if you lose 0.5lbs…I tend to hold these over for another week until another 0.5lbs can join it!
I am then going to use my beads to make something when I hit target, to remind me of my journey – maybe a necklace, a bracelet or I may even decorate the edge of a mirror with them!
I would urge you to make a little jar for yourself – it really gives you a good psychological boost!
