The Jars of Destiny

Friday, June 07, 2013

I saw this done when I was searching for motivational pictures on line...I had to try a version with things I had on hand...

Here's what I ended up with:

I gave myself a mightier goal than I had initially intended, but I'd rather have too many rocks in the jar than have to add more to it!!
30 rocks, 30 lbs.

Some rocks are bigger than others, those will represent really tough weeks. Some are small, and those are easy losses...like this week...week 1. Lots of water weight to be lost, so easy...(to me). To some, the first week may be the hardest. I just love this idea and wanted to share what I did.

I used some scrapbooking stickers I had laying around! I placed the jars on my kitchen window ledge. Right in front of the sink. I'm over there a lot, so I will have a constant reminder!

    Seashells would be great too! I did see that done on line and it looked very pretty. I didn't have enough seashells around the house...so I went with the rock theme. :)

    I love this idea also! I wonder if I could do it with seashells as I live in Fl and have lots of those ;)
    I also love the idea of a tip jar - Now there's motivation!

    I love it! I have been trying to find a way to visualize the pounds lost. One pound can sound like a small number (1) but visually a pound is pretty substantial. I really like how the rocks fill the jar. I also like dianewithasmile's idea of money. That will be my goal this weekend to come up with a pounds lost jar. Thanks!

    I love this! I did mine with decorative stones, but I have 90 to lose! Great job! I also have a tip jar, so every time I exercise I give myself a dollar! I have enough now to buy a swanky new sports bra in a fun funky colour!
