Ideas for my weight-loss challenge

July 18th, 2006 at 09:48 pm

Just thought I'd start this post now and will add onto it more as I think of things [or revise them. Smile]

I think I'll give myself $5.00 per each pound that I lose.

Now remember, this is not real money [read my previous weight-loss post for explanation.

It's nearly 1:00 a.m. and I'm really too tired right now to figure out more of the details;

but hope to work on that more tomorrow.

Now I'm trying to decide when to start and I think I'll wait until the 1st of August.

For some reason, I've always had problems starting things like that during the middle of the month. *lol*

Weight loss - I had an idea! :)

I just found a cool site from someone elses blog on here and went there today.

It's called Fru-Gals and I love it [it's a money saving forum too.]

So, what does that have to do with weight loss?

Well - on Fru-Gals, they have a "Community Bank" on their website where, you make deposits with money you have saved.

This is not real money but is a tool used to guage successes.

Okay, so on the way home from the store tonight [a short 2 minute walk *lol*], I got to thinking ...

Why can't I do a challenge like that for myself for losing weight and exercising and blog about the "fake" money I made since I know I only have so much money each month to be able to save in real money.

Now, I'm thinking that this just might work for me!!

[I love a challenge and especially one where I can see results adding up!]

I first want to do some serious thinking about it ... you know, like how much $ I'll give myself for losing 1 pound.

And, if I'll give myself money for good choices made [such as for not buying that donut to eat, etc.]

Also, I'd give myself a certain amount for each block that I walk [to me friends, seeing the money [real or not!] add up ... is motivating! Smile

I also thought about subtracting so much from my total for days I didn't exercise or when I might trip up and pig out.

Had thought about making the money I subtract to be an even greater amount than what I would put in for making the good choices [that could be a big motivator too!]

What do ya all think? A silly idea or is it crazy enough that it just might work? *Giggle*



P.S. I also had thought that this might work for my cutting way down on smoking too!

Hmmm, I may see another challenge in my future. Smile Smile
