Vending Machines & Fast Food


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Around 3:30 at work and on the drive home, vending machines & drive-throughs were defeating me. I dream of travel (when I'm small enough to fit in 1 airline seat again!). I put "Travel" on an envelope and each time I want to get something, put the $ in the envelope instead. I've done this for just four days so far, lost 2 pounds, and have $20 in the envelope! emoticon

I haven't decided how I'll use the $ yet: buying myself a suitcase for an overnight car trip? An overnight at a romantic hotel with dear husband? I am surprised at how fast $ is accumulating: I wasn't tracking this impulse food.

    That is an excellent idea!!! I want to go to germany with my BF in a few years....and i struggle saving money...but that little change adds up.... and i dont want to go to Germany with him before i can reach my weight loss goals!!! I am doing this, one envelope for each week and i am going to take them home and put them in a safe or piggy bank of somesort and not touch them for a YEAR....and see how much it helps might not be much but it will still be more than i will realize im sure. :-) emoticon

    Make you a smoothie the night before put it in something to take to work you will have a treat on the way home. I use a 20 oz or bigger water bottle.
