My Weight Loss Jars: 2 Stone Lost

11 March 2015

Last Friday was a big day for me. I managed to move all of the pink lb straws back in to my "To Lose" jar in exchange for another gold one, as I have now managed to lose two stone! So far I've only been eating healthily to lose weight, but I'm going to give myself an extra boost in March by taking up swimming too. I can't believe that the next time I move a gold straw over, I'll be half way to my six stone loss. 

Over the last two weeks or so I've started to notice that a lot of my clothes have become quite baggy, so it's definitely getting closer to time to refresh my wardrobe. I'm excited to treat myself to a big pre-Florida shopping spree once I (hopefully) reach my six stone target. At a party recently a family friend noticed that I'd lost some weight, and promised to take me shopping if I managed to hit my target, which I thought was incredibly sweet.

Losing two stone feels like a big achievement, and I'm really proud of myself for sticking with it so far. I've had little treats along the way, so hopefully this change is something that I'll be able to sustain in the future. I've got just under six months to go until Florida now, so hopefully all of the gold straws will be moved over by then.

  1. Good job! This is such a cute idea. It reminds me of elementary school when we had popsicle sticks to count the days, weeks and months of the year!

  2. I love that you're still having treats - it's so much more sustainable and realistic if you do it that way (speaking from experience!). So so so happy for you lovely :) good luck with the rest of your journey!!!
