So I saw this somewhere and thought it was a cool idea. Use two cups or jars and place beads, marbles, or whatever in as “counters.” One cup is how many lbs you want to lose and the other is how many lost. As you lose lbs move beads into the other cup. There are 43 in mine. That’s a lot but hopefully they will all be in the other cup soon enough. Something visual like this should be really motivating.
