That's cute! And I can see how that would be a constant reminder...

@Wannabeskinny
Thanks

I thought about making a huge one with 3 inch plastic balls and 2 clear large containers but I didn't think that would fit on my counter and besides, husband would die laughing at me.

Great idea!

I have been putting money into a savings account for a shopping spree when I reach goal. I log-on to my bank account at least twice a day and can see the savings adding up.

When I was the title of this I was thinking for some reason you were going to post about having pics of celebs as incentive to lose ...but I did not expect this. That is awesome!!! Love it!!!

This is a great idea.....although I would have to save up just to buy enough marbles! And I wonder how a five gallon bucket would look on the counter? Seriously, I'm needing some incentive, and this may just do the trick!

Nice idea!
I have a charm bracelet. I add one charm for each 5 pound mark, and two for each 10 pound mark.

You could have it with mini goals, or have a couple colors, like black white and pink with white being one pound, pink being 5 and black 10 or something, have 5 white then when you lose all 5 you put a pink in and move the white back to the first vase to relose, that way you dont have a huge jar
