Hi Teresa

I just added a sentence to direct members to your excellent topic and play it there, if they wish to play the game.
Of course keep posting your wonderful daily topic. The game has been already in your original post with other motivational readings (leave it in, you never know. Someone may like to play it on your topic). It is just an added color to enter on your topic when we post every day on "On Plan/Move JUST FOR TODAY! Visual.
Thank you for asking. I apologize I was not clear on where to post it.

have a wonderful day

p.s.
By the way, it is a great game. I've played by my own for aobut 5 years.

Mimi,
This looks familiar. I have always thought it might be interesting on its own. I will post the usual on plan. However, now that you have posted a great majority of it, do you want me to not post, or leave this portion out? In fact I have had queries about how to play in the past.

Play this game on Teresa's fantastic and important topic "On Plan/Move JUST FOR TODAY"!, where we get motivated every day. If you wish to play the game, Just add an emoticon to your daily regular post for fun colors and visual success.

Consider playing this game. It's Fun!!! (when you follow the rules...smile...)

**** The Points+ plan doesn't include calories, but the ideas are good on rule # 3. You can try to substitute Points+ for the calories mentioned.

emoticon I saw the "NECKLACE (CHAIN) GAME" somewhere and I liked it.

I thought you might like it too.

You can make your own beautiful necklace (or a chain) by being OP (On Plan), using the emoticons provided here on SP.

*** You can also play this game for one week at a time (or month...etc...) and build a new necklace every week if you wish (or a month...etc...)

*** Please feel free to make adjustments and changes to the "NECKLACE GAME" as you wish.

Congratulations on being On Plan, and if not, congratulations on starting over!

NOTE!
Please read Rule # 3 below. It's an excellent motivating rule to stick to your Necklace game, which means: sticking with your weight-loss journey.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE GAME

1. For every day you are ON PLAN (OP) you put in your necklace (chain ) the letter D ( for a DAY). So, if you are OP for 4 days in a row, your necklace looks like that: D - D - D - D

It's nicer to use the "EMOTICONS"
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
2. Once you are OP for 7 days, you change it to W ( For a week) .
Example: If I'm OP for 19 days, my necklace ( or chain) looks like that: W - W - D - D - D - D - D
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
emoticon emoticon

If you prefer to wear a longer necklace, you can WEAR it this way too:( instead of a W for a week, put 7 "D"'S, like this: D - D - D - D - D - D - D-

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

3. If you are FULL MONTH OP, It becomes M ( For a MONTH). So, if you are OP 49 days in a row, ( on a 31 days a month),your necklace will look like that: M - W - W - D - D - D - D
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


RULES OF THE GAME .

1. It's a challenge for yourself , NOT A COMPETITION WITH OTHERS.

2. The first day you BREAK the necklace (chain), you start playing the game all over again , (only if you have used already all of your extra 3500 calories for the month : See Rule # 3), and build your necklace ( chain ) once more from the beginning.

3. RULE # 3 IS VERY IMPORTANT .
PLEASE READ IT !
IT IS A GOOD RULE TO HELP YOU STICK TO THE NECKLACE- GAME .
In order to learn NOT to be perfect, and in order To BE realistic,( we will always have days we are not OP) , YOU MAY HAVE ( if you choose to) UP TO 3500 EXTRA CALORIES each MONTH IN ADDITION TO YOUR regular diet.
You can still CONTINUE to built your necklace(chain)!

The idea here is that the extra 3500 calories amount only to 1 pound gain in one month period, while an average of 2-4 pounds loss per month is VERY reasonable with being OP.
You will still be AHEAD OF THE GAME at the end of each month if you need to add up to extra 3500 calories in a month, providing you are otherwise OP.

The second idea is that once you've built a large chain,( many days OP), you want to keep going building the chain,( rather than break it and start all the way from the beginning again), and rule # 3 allows you to do that , WHILE YOU CONTINUE TO LOSE WEIGHT.
4. Keep your own records.
THAT INCLUDES ALSO KEEPING RECORDS OF THE OPTION TO USE UP TO 3500 calories EACH MONTH. ( when we go off plan).
5. Post your NECKLACE (chain) every day.

I hope you enjoy the game.
