When I did Weight Watcher's a few years ago, I went to the meetings. One of my favorite parts of the meeting was at the end, when the leader would pass out the gold star stickers. These gold star stickers were for anyone that had reached a 5 pound milestone that week (5,10,15,20.... pounds). Everyone would clap as the person's name was called out, and it was my favorite moment of the meeting.
I saved all my gold stars in my weigh in booklet. Now that I am doing WW online, I really miss those gold star stickers. (Yes, I require the same motivation as a potty training toddler.)
As soon as I saw this on pinterest, I knew I had found my motivation tool. I looked around my house to see if I had the right container, and ended up using some of my old canning jars from my collection.
I used two bags of glass filler from the Dollar Tree, and made a label for the front (just like my pantry labels). I put 50 little glass marbles in the pounds left jar.
Then I took out 17 marbles and put them in the pounds lost jar. I felt so accomplished as I took those marbles away from the jar of 50.
Every week after I weigh in, I will be able to take some marbles and move them to the pounds lost jar (hopefully). That's almost as good as a gold star sticker.
