    Button jars?

    Do you think we shall all make them & once a week on weigh in day post a piccie of them so we can see the difference? It's like a visual aid & the joy of moving 5 across this morning was immense. If you haven't read my diary & don't know what I mean here is piccie of mine. The left jar is a button to represent every lb lost & the right jar is a button for every lb left to go....

    I didn't make the jars they were sewing kits. Kitty has used jam jars & marbles which I think is a really clever idea

    I do this! Just restarted for my 2014 journey!

    Except I have 3 jars, helps me with my smaller targets....

    1.first jar has all the weight in I want to lose (1 bell = 1 pound)

    2. I have broken my big target I to smaller ones, my first target is to lose 9lbs to get me into the next stone bracket....therefore my second jar current has 9 bells in.....

    3. The end jar is my gone jar for every pound I have lost!!

    I find having the second jar helps me feel more positive and I can concentrate one target at a time rather than feeling disheartened at the bigger number! Button jars?-imageuploadedbyminimins.com1388827952.983355.jpg

    Thats a really good idea, I suppose I am lucky that I am quite close to my target now so it doesn't look really hard

    I did this today

    Well, I didn't use buttons because I don't have enough of them but I have two Kilner jars. One filled with pieces of paper for pounds I need to lose, and one filled with pieces of paper for pounds I have lost.

    I think I'm going to hunt around my house to see if I can find something more colourful than paper.

    Oooh Jenny I quite like the 3 jars idea. I have a lot to lose and have only just started out on my journey so having the small step jar in between maybe a perfect way to not be overwhelmed by the huge first jar.
