That's true about removing beads. And we never have failures... only more chances to make better choices. It sounds like you have a good plan!

weighing weekly- i don't believe in weighing daily... i fluctuate WAY too much for that :) i don't think i'm going to remove beads if i have a week where i gain just not add extras when i lose it back. i like to think that i won't see a small, temporary gain as a failure and that i'll just focus on the good that's happened so far... and somehow having to take beads off my necklace would seem a bit more like a failure :)

Hmmm...I'll have to remember to pick up some beads, etc. A visual cue is an excellent idea unless you're the type of person who gets stressed out with the scale numbers. Do you take 1 away if you gain a lb? Are you weighing yourself every day or week?

I started my necklace yesterday and am really liking the idea :) It's hanging above my stove so that I can see it when I cook.

That's a terrific idea with the beads!

I'm sorry I don't have anything to contribute here. I'm fighting to get my "moto" back. Thus, I'd love to hear from our fellow Katy Sparker's too.

I followed a link to a particular SparkPage today from WarriorWoman and she had a FANTASTIC idea of making a necklace where each of the beads represented a pound of weight loss with prettier beads put in for each 5 and 10 pounds lost. I am definitely going to start one of my own but wondered what other motivation gems people had found or had started themselves. I'm really excited to hear what everyone says! I'd love to hear your favorite motivational quotes as well :)
