    Do you do anything to mark your weight loss?

    When I started LL there was one lady (she had started 2 weeks previously) and I noticed she had colourful ribbons tied to the handle of her LL bag when I asked why she said they marked each pound she had lost. I thought that was a fab idea but I wanted to do something different.

    Yesterday I was in The Works and noticed they had a stand of bits n pieces for card making and spotted packs of colourful buttons in different shapes e.g apples, stars, hearts, hands, flowers etc... They had a variety of other things that would do the same - all for £1 a pack! Bargin!

    So, my LL bag has colourful buttons all sewn around the handles - it is a nice reminder of how well I am doing! :D

    What do you do?

    I promised myself major treats for each stone lost:

    1st stone: Health club membership
    2nd stone: Mulberry handbag (it was a lifelong ambition to own one :))
    3rd stone: Spa day with my best friend
    4th stone: Pair of Diesel jeans (my 2nd lifelong ambition :))

    Nearly at 5 stone now - and nothing lined up - which is just as well to be honest - I'll be bankrupt if I don't stop spending! :eek: :D

    I bought some new overpriced eye-shadow and lip gloss today, and I LOVE IT! Definitely my reward for the weight I've lost so far, as I usually save my make-up treats for b'day/xmas. I'm flexible about when to reward myself for my loss, today felt like the right time.

    Have any of you guys been down here and seen Westfield, it really is amazing, pure shopping heaven, even better if you do the valet parking and then you don't even have to carry your own bags, they just get delivered to your car!!! If not I suggest a goal related shopping trip for us all <EFG>

    On that note treats wise...
    To all of you ladies who will hit your next goal, i invite everyone of you who can come down to Oxford Street for a free make-up lesson and a makeover on my counter!!!
    One at a time or we can arrange a group session!
    My treat to all of you! :D
    How does that sound?? ;)
