So, as any good young woman and mother that loves to craft, cook, give gifts and throw parties...I am addicted to Pinterest! And good thing, I might add, as that is how I started this blog. Mama Laughlin's blog (why yes, I am beating a dead horse) came my way one night while pinning! Pinterest also brought me this wonderful idea...
 Basically, you get 2 glass jars and "write" on one (whether you paint on the words or use stickers) "Pounds lost" and on the other, "Pounds to go". Figure out how much weight you want to lose and put that amount of glass stones, pebbles, whatever; in the Pounds to Go jar. With each pound you lose, transfer over a stone to the Pounds Lost jar and fill that baby up!

I'm a visual person. Just the differences in the mirror aren't enough...I want to see the progress anyway I can! And I think it's good to see how far you've come and how much more you need to go, so, I created my own! Check it!
I used shorter jars because I wanted to see that FULL "Pounds to Go" jar diminish! I also used bigger stones. I feel like each pound is a huge part of my weight. I wanted the satisfaction of transferring these large stones from one jar to another. You can't see in this picture, but there are 2 stones in my "Pounds Lost" jar. Hopefully I can add more to that jar tomorrow! :)

As Pinterest would say...HAPPY PINNING!!!!


  1. That's a great idea, Kyra! For what it's worth, I'm proud of you! :)

  3. I am so excited to see this! I saw it on pinterest as well and made a set with starbucks frap jars that I had purchased at the grocery store (small weakness of mine...creamy cold or hot coffee drinks!)
    I love them! So awesome that you shared this!!!!!
