One of the things I started with this weight loss journey was a sticker chart. It was a simple concept: meet a non-scale victory (or minor scale victory like 5 pounds loss), earn a sticker. Earn enough stickers, get a prize (like a Kindle book).

Anyhoo, I’ve decided to share my first full sticker chart. I’ll admit, I’ve been pretty bad when it comes to keeping up with my chart over the past couple weeks, but I’m getting back on track there.
