Today after briefly checking in on the folks at 300 plus, and more specifically my team in the current Biggest Loser challenge within the 300 plus team (The Sunset Sparklers), I saw them post about secrets for success. I loved an idea I saw someone speak of. A paperclip for each pound lost, made into a chain. I liked that for when at home, but I couldn't visualize that helping me when I'm not there at home seeing it. I ran with the idea and came up with this..
I could have put the clips directly onto the main key-ring but given the amount of weight I need to lose, that wouldn't work when I'm nearing my final goal. Instead I chose to add them to a smaller ring, that is then added to the main one. I'll add a new small ring after I've reached 50 paperclips (50 lbs down) and so on. This way I can carry a reminder of my weight loss with me on my keys etc. Will it be noticeable, yes, probably, but that gives me a chance to talk about healthy choices with those who ask.
