Visual Motivation

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Last night I was reading some motivational ideas from other members and saw that one member went to Pinterest to obtain motivation. I thought, hmmm, I wonder what I would find. So I logged into my Pinterest account and typed in weight loss motivation and up pops a whole bunch of stuff. After browsing through the jungle, I found something very interesting and something I want to do. I'm a visual person so I thought that this would be an effective motivational tool. This little gem of an idea could help me stay focused. Perhaps one marble for every pound you need to lose goes in the "Pounds to Go" jar and for every pound lost, one goes in the "Pound Lost" jar. Love it! So simple, very visual, and the dollar store has everything I need to get started.

Aren't these cute? (These are not my jars but the inspiration photo I found)

Don't want to get that into it? Google "pounds lost jar" and you can find all sorts of crafty ideas on how to label your jars.

    I started with fifty five green "stones" in a jar and put 9 in a beautiful vase with a red ribbon and the flowering Christmas cactus that I am rooting...

    Couldn't you have stayed with us at TOP..I was MIA for awhile but the TOP has been so much a part of my life..

    Saying prayers for these poor poor children and families in Conneticut... This world has gone MAD...

    Hi Carol!

    So glad you liked the idea, I did too! You can post a photo on a Blog but not in the forums. I can't post because I left the group and it's private. Just keep in touch through my Blog or Sparkmail. Thanks for writing and Merry Merry Christmas to you and your family! emoticon
