    on whether to get a 6 week count down, if my scales at home are correct i have another stone to loose and then im at target.

    reasons to get a count down:
    will be cheaper in the long run
    means i will go for another 6 weeks and will stick at the plan

    reasons not to get a count down:
    im close to target so might be a waste if i reach target before its over (i wish!!)
    im a bit skint atm so its a big payout all at once

    what are everyone elses views? :confused:

    I always get a countdown. Not only is it cheaper it's an incentive to go. If you are a stone away from target then it's possible you may take 6 weeks to get there. What have you got going on in the next 6 weeks? Parties? BBQ's? Holidays? There are so many things that can interrupt our losses. I'd get one just to be on the safe side

    my friend always gets a countdown she says it really helps here not only save money but knows if she doesnt try she will have to buy yet another countdown so she tries to get to her targets before it runs out.

    whats your tatoo, were you having it?

    I'm getting another in July, nothing that big though!

    To me, getting a tattoo = all day pub crawl with my brother!

    Countdown's always work for me - I think it's that mental commitment that you make when you buy one that keeps me going (she said after re-joining dozens of times!)

    That is mad! My tattooist is female and people still think it's an unusual career for a woman. I would never go to anyone else though

    My hubby has loads of tats and I have 3. His tattooist is a woman and she only has a tiny one on her wrist. I am getting a Jasmine Beckett Griffiths fairy design done soon.

    Are you having your pin up girl in colour or black and grey?
