Ok, it has become clearly obvious to me that I cannot sit down to this computer until late at night. So what I'm going to start doing is posting the next day's DTD, the night before.



Diet Tip of the Day for August 5, 2004

Start a Piggy Bank

Put the money that you would spend in the vending machine, at the bakery, etc., into a new clothes fund. That small change can add up quickly.

Ohhhh, good idea! Or maybe even a pay yourself plan for every pound(s) lost or OP day/week, etc. The money certainly would add up fast. Great tip Kim, thanks!

Just wanted to say that even though I don't respond, I read these every time you post. This is a great one--I put $50 into my vacation fund every time I lose 5 lbs. Hawaii here I come!

Hey Kim thanks!!
You know what I'm going to do... everytime my family orders out fast food. I will choose to make something healthy for myself at home. Then put the money that my sandwich/fries/drink would of cost me had I ate there in an buy me something nice fund!
Thanks you just made fast food less of a temptation.

What a great idea!!! Thanks Kim - I'm loving these tips! :D

I think I will put money into a vacation fund too! Steve and I plan on going to Mexico next year for our 5 year anniversary and not only do I want lots of money but I want to feel comfortable to walk down the beach in a dress or a bathing suit! So, I'm going to start putting away some money everytime I meet a mini-goal.
