Weight loss is so hard. I think some encouraging words to help us lose weight when we’re struggling can only help.

I’ve been looking at ways to help me shed some weight.¬†Somewhere online (I wish I could remember where), I saw that someone was putting rocks from one container to another when she lost a pound. That made sense to me. I thought though that I might want to add a little twist that would help me visualize not only my weight loss, where I’d been and where I’m going, but that would remind me of the WHYs that I need to lose these pounds.

I took a Sharpie, 20 smooth, flat, glass marbles, 2 votive candle holders, and I made a visual weight loss aide that I keep in my bathroom. Hope it helps you, too.

How to FINALLY, REALLY lose the weight this time. (You can do it.)
