    I have decided for every lb lost I will save £1 in my money box so by target I should have a fair few quid to spend on new stuff :D and also gives me an incentive to stick to it!! Has anyone else done this???

    great incentive ... sadly i would need £10 for every lb i lose lucky my hubby hasn't seen bank statement i need to sell my bigger clothes on eBay to try and equally it out,

    this is an expensive diet , not only cd products but new clothes , getting hair done , even had to get new shoes as gone done half a size lol ... think they need to add a warning to the booklets lol;)

    I've been doing this too. I've decided to spend it on something totally frivolous that i would normally dismiss. Not decided what yet though.

    I shared this idea a few weeks back and have started doing it, though I went on holiday so it went out the window but will be trying again! On my post I shared a link to these money boxes that you can't open, I'll try and find it again and share it!

    I put £1 away for every 1lb I lose, then hubby2b doubles it up for me. So by goal I should have nearly £200 and I'm going to splash it all out on a new dress- something I would never wear before CD :)

    I took money out of savings for CD and put aside some for clothes, its an incentive to stay on track because the less money I spend on the diet the more money I have left for shoping!!

    My HB is putting money aside for me for every stone I loose :D I told him that I'd like a mulberry handbag when I get to goal so he better be putting aside a fair whack!
