I have decided that I would really like to have a Fitbit One but don't want to just go out and buy something that I may not use very often. So I decided to make a project out of it and use the Fitbit as a reward.

The plan is to use a jar with the picture of the Fitbit on it, and for everytime I drink 8 glasses of water, stay within my calorie limit, or exercise I put 1 dollar in my jar. I might use pompoms, with the 3 different colours, one for each type of success and that way I dont have to take out coins.

That gives me the potential for 3 dollars a day, the fitbit is 100 dollars (plus shipping)- 100/3, the means if I earned the whole 3 everyday it would take 33 days. I dont think it is realistic to think I will succeed everyday so it could take up to 2 months..

I think I will make my goal to get it by the new year (Jan.1st)!
Exciting! I will keep you all posted on how I do.

    I think I may take this. Once I get into my house I will start "earning" my fitbit. I've wanted one for a while but I couldn't justify the expense now I can! Thanks

    Sounds like a great way to motivate yourself! I just got my fitbit in the mail today and I am still figuring it out but so far it is awesome!

    You have time to save up...I pre-ordered mine a month ago and it has not shipped yet. Good luck with your program!!

    I bought the fitbit zip and am very happy so far. I put it on as soon as I wake up.

    Your reward goal is a good idea. Good luck

    What a novel idea!! I have been thinking of getting a fitbit too, cost has been my main issue, I like using it as a reward :)
