Physical Education: Weight Loss Jars

imageOn New Year’s Eve, my friend, Stephanie, and I decided to stay in, drink champagne, and focus on setting intentions for the new year! We made vision boards by cutting out pictures from magazines and Mod Podging them to art canvases that I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I made a style vision board and a fitness motivation board that I have hanging in my office. We also made weight loss jars to help us meet our goals. The jars and marbles were purchased at Michael’s and I found the chalkboard labels in the dollar section at Target. I put 30 marbles in my “pounds to lose” back on January 1. As of today, I have moved 20 marbles to the “pounds destroyed” jar. There is something very satisfying about moving marbles each week after I weigh in. I’m a very visual person, so having these jars on my book case are a constant reminder of my goal. The last 10 pounds will be difficult to lose, but these jars will help me along the way.

Homework: How do you motivate yourself when you have a few pounds to lose?

  1. I love the idea of the jars. Great to see it all the time. I use money. For every day I know has been a good one (diet wise) I put a £1 coin in a purse in my underwear drawer. If it has been an exceptional day (and I think we all know the difference there!) I put in £2. The money is for a treat such as smaller clothes or perfume etc. At the moment I am putting it towards my dress for my daughter’s wedding later this year. If Im not buying rubbish It stands to reason that I will have money to save. Good luck with those final pounds !

  2. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across
    a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and without a doubt,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
