hey, just thought id share what i do each week. for every 1lb i lose i put £10 in my savings jar. ive lost 36lbs in total now so theres £360 in there. when i get to target im spending it all on new clothes.
on wi 1 i lost a stone so had to put £140 in there that week,lol. didnt expect to be putting that much in but will enjoy it when reach my target.

Jeez!! What on earth do you do for a living?!?! LOL! I'd barely be able to put more than £5 a lb in- and thats only because my losses were so small!!

Haha, that's a great idea, though the stone loss must have been a bit of a blow to your bank account ;-)

That's a lot of new clothes you'll have at the end :) Exciting! If I weren't living off a student loan I would totally be following your lead...

Brilliant idea Jenny! Wish I'd have thought of that! Although I would have been broke by now!

Think I might start that next week as my clothes are hanging on me, and I'm going to need to go on a spree soon.

lol irishmum, i dont actually work. like to call myself a lady of leisure, although housewife is what every1 else would say. hubby looks after us bless him. told him i wanted a tenner for every lb i lost or when i get to goal id need a load of money in 1 go so he went with the tenner idea, dont think he thought id lose much weight.lol.
i think even if u put £1 for every lb lost its still an achievement and when ur at target u can see how much ive lost. even it just buys 1 outfit or some shoes.
im such a saver though.

What a brilliant idea - though not sure I could manage a tenner per lb -maybe a £ per lb - got some catching up to do then lol

That is fantastic I was just amusing myself by thinking about what my husband would say if I asked him for a tenner per lb lost. hahaha
He would look at me then roll the eyes then ignore :D hahaha

If you think about it, I dont lose big anyway so he would only end up paying £20 per week.

Saying that, we already cost £36 on this diet anyway :)

Jenny, that is a really cool idea and a great incentive to keep going as you can see the money jar mounting up every week. Think I will do something similar and aim to treat myself to new duds for Christmas.
