    My Mum came up with an idea yesterday... I've just started Slimming World and she said to put £1 in a jar for every pound I loose. So when I reach my target weight i'll have enough in the jar to buy my new self a new outfit :D

    so far I have £6.50 in there

    Probably isn't an original idea but I thought it was a rather good one and just wanted to share it with you all :)

    Hey Cocoafiend what a great idea, I have done the same :)
    I got £4 in my jar for this week, thank you and who knows we get to buy new outfits & a smaller size too ;-)

    Fab idea, I've just started saving £2 coins as well for my new clothes so that would go nicely with it. I'll have to find £13 now!!

    Wish someone had done this for me or I'd thought of the idea!
    I would have £67 pound by now! and if I get to where I want to get I would have £123 in the end thats a nice spend up!:eek:

    I might try and do it! If I put £2 a lb in from now on it would be nice too!:)

    Thanks for sharing this idea! :cool:

    Wow Pickle! My Sister is 6ft and I thought she was tall. She reckons anyone under 6ft is a freak tho :rolleyes: :p

    That is an awesome idea btw. If I get the job I'm after I will definitely start doing that :D

    This is an EXCELLENT idea. However, I don't think I've got £44 spare at the moment, so I might just start adding a £ every time I lose from now on. I've got at least 50lb left to lose, which could go part-way towards something nice. My Mum will probably be kind enough to give the rest. :D

    Hey I mentioned this idea to my boyfriend, who is going to 'sponsor' me too haha, so for every £1 I put in, he is going to put £2 in cause he knows how much loosing some weight means to me :) I might mention it to my mum, maybe she will 'sponsor' me too LMAO..........now thats just greed isnt it haha x
