Rewarding Obedience

Well, my tip is nothing profound or new.. I am just sharing this age old tip to reiterate how much it really does work. lol The Marble Jar. lol I know I know. But let me tell you it really is working. The more we stay on top of the giving and taking away of marbles the more our son is excited about earning marbles. In the picture, it is hard to see, we have lines that equal different rewards. The first line is a matchbox car from Target lol. The tip top line is a shopping trip to ToysRus. Of course we don't want to teach our children that obedience only comes with a reward of "things", however, I do believe that with time it instills them the principles and develops good behavior habits. After a month of making his bed, and getting a marble for it everyday.. well he has now formed a wonderful habit. This is working for us RIGHT NOW lol

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
