8 paperclips to go!

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

When I began with SparkPeople in October, I started putting together a chain of paperclips. As each pound came off, I added one paperclip to the chain to represent each pound that's gone forever.

They're hanging from a lamp over my desk. I have to move them in order to turn that lamp on and off, so I see them and touch them every day.

There are 17 paperclips hanging there right now.

Today, I placed 8 more paperclips in a separate container on my desk where I can see them. Those represent the pounds that will go away by the time I reach my first goal.

It's a good reminder for me.

I'm want to do something really special with that chain of 25 paperclips when I reach my goal . . . . Any ideas?
