I saw this on another 3FC forum, and I liked it a lot. The poster and a friend don't attend Weight Watcher meetings, but they put the money they would have spent going to a WW meeting into a jar each week before they weigh in. When they reach their goal weights, then they get to spend the money.

I need the support of going to meetings so I plan to continue paying WW that money, but I think it's a great idea for people who don't want to attend meetings. I don't want to even think of how much money I'd have in that jar before I hit my goal weight!

I'd put it in a money market account, though, to get the interest. :)

This is actually a fascinating idea!
I may work this into our family budget.

That is a GREAT idea. Even if it was just a dollar or something.... that would add up!!!!

my hubby allots me $1 per pound lost, plus other big rewards for big losses, a shopping trip at 30# so on, all the way down to pretty much whatever I want when i reach goal....:D before I started TOPS, I was using the money for books at our used book store, but now, I save it for my "mad money" change for challenges, water at meetings, so on...
