Here's the original idea I got from FaceBook:

Update: Jan 9/2013

I decided that I need one at work so that I don't conveniently FORGET to add my Woohoos!!!

    I saw an idea for this last year, and intended to do it for 2013 but then forgot. But it is such a great idea!
    I also like the idea of a God jar, where you put the problems you want God to look after

    I love the idea of a Woo Hoo jar!! And yes, you are a bit nuts, but in a gloriously healthy way!! Wait a minute, you might be confusing being nuts, with being enthusiastic and energetic!! This gets back to choosing your thoughts, negative or positive!! GO ANNIE GO!!

    good plan - remembering the good things that happen outside the home can be even more rewarding. .

    LOVE it! I have a January Jar...heard about your jar and now I'm proposing that all of us maybe get together on 12/31 and read them together and CELEBRATE emoticon ! What do you say?!* Maybe I need to change the name on mine from January Jar to "Whoohoo Jar" after all I used a chalk label....Anyhoo....LOVE your vlog and whoohoo jar and would love to celebrate good times together with everyone using your idea! emoticon

    Love you blog. I'm wondering about positive post-its on my calendar so I could review them whenever I need a jolt of reality. I, too lost 50 lbs and regained 10. Now I'm having trouble wanting to lose weight more than I want to be loosey-goosey. But if I could just write down each positive thing, it would add up and motivate me. Yea, Janet. Yea, Annie! WooHoo!

    My SparkFriend Crystle mentioned your vlog so I HAD to check it out. What a great idea!

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this idea!!! A few years ago I went to a "paint your own pottery place" and painted a ceramic cookie jar with the intent that I would fill it with positive quotes and inspirations. But, as often happens, I've neglected it.

    But now, I have the perfect "WHOO HOO" Jar, and I plan to dust it off and use it right away! I like this encouragement and inspiration. Thanks so much for sharing this good idea and keep them coming! ;-)

    I wish you GREAT SUCCESS for 2013! A 35 lb loss and a great outlook and plan for the future! Man you're WEIGH (hee hee) ahead of the game! emoticon emoticon

    I used to have a God jar... wrote in all the problems I wanted God look after (a few names were on those slips of paper). The hardest part was not writing suggestions for how to deal with them... lol. I think this is a great idea. We so often forget the good stuff that happens and concentrate only on the bad.

    A Spark friend told me about your woohoo jar and I had to stop by and check it out! I love the idea! I think I will make one for myself! It is so easy to see the things that go wrong and forget the good things so this is a great way to turn that around! Thanks for sharing!

    Hey there - how are you doing?

    So I really like the idea.

    REALLY like it.


    Here's hoping you have to make a SECOND WOOHOO Jar because the first is filled up with so much good stuff this year!

    Make it a great day!

    What a wonderful idea. We tend to look at the negatives and forget the positives that happened. I will definitely make myself a WooHoo jar. Thanks for sharing this great idea.

    1872 days ago
    Yes Indeed a great idea! Although I didn't have a WhooHoo jar I had to get my thoughts together to think positive when I sat down to reflect for my year in review. It would make it so much easier if I had WhooHoo jar! emoticon emoticon Idea!

    Thanks for passing this along!! I saw something similar on Pininterest; we have one but it is a Happy Family Moments jar so we can remember the good times we had together throughout the year and we will open it on 12.31.13!! I like the SP version! I think I will set up a WooHoo jar for me!!! emoticon emoticon

    Oh my gosh, I wish I could make "I lost 50 freakin pounds" my ringtone! Seriously, I love the way you said it and it's SO TRUE! I am feeling exactly how you were, feeling debbie downer because I have not lost a single pound since Halloween, and I am up maybe 4 pounds from the lowest weight I got. But the part that I keep forgetting is I lost "50 freakin pounds" between March and October and 60 overall. I could not have seen this vlog at a better possible time, because I can easily get down on myself, but when I see that you have lost 50 freakin pounds I realize what an accomplishment that is. Thank you for putting some positivity into my day!

    Your Woohoo jar is awesome, love it! emoticon I am totally going to have to take you up on that idea and get it done. :)

    Great idea... I'm doin' it!! And, yes.... I do think you're "crazy" but that's why I like you. I am sure that jar will be jammed with "your Woo Hoo" moments.
