At the very beginning of my journey, i made two jars to give me a little motivation. As you can see, the first one represents how many pounds I would like to lose and the second represents how many pounds I have lost thus far. I really think this has helped a huge amount. It is very encouraging to be able to put a ball into the pounds defeated jar & extremely humbling to have to slowly and regretfully toss a ball back into the pounds to lose jar.
For the past few weeks, there has been no movement in these jars. Which is a bittersweet fact. I like that I haven’t had to reverse any of my progress, but I know full well that I’ve been pretty stagnant in my journey to be the healthiest me I can be.
But honestly, for anyone who is looking for a little bit of motivation, I would recommend this method. It was inexpensive and it is something that has given me so much encouragement and affirmation that I truly am getting somewhere. Since I have it on my dresser in my bedroom, I’ve found it to be the extra push I need to change into my gym clothes and go work out. Not to mention, if you pick the right colors, it can add a nice accent to your room decor. 😉
So, hopefully with the help of my Jump Start Plan, I can get those little guys moving in the right direction.
