Rewards

Do you reward yourselves when you've had a loss? Or when you reach a mini-goal?

I rewarded myself to a new lipstick last week, and today I owe myself a brand new steel collander
(sp?) - for draining water out of pasta and such. It keeps me motivated, and of course the big fat
carrot at the very end of the stick: celebrating Valentines Day and 6 months anniversary with my
wonderful boyfriend in the same week, looking absolutely stunning:eek:)

I've given myself rewards for my big milestones - first 10 lost, 10% lost, 25 lbs lost. I'm planning
rewards for reaching goal, and another for staying at goal for 5 months. I"m having a bit of trouble
with my next mini-goal, so maybe I need to offer myself a reward. ;-)

yes, I did. Maybe I need to set up some more rewards for maintenance, or for getting to where I
really want to be.

I usually found that meeting my mini goals was enough of a reward, but occasionally, I planned a
nice meal at a restaurant - on program, of course. Elaine K

Well, I reached goal on January 4th, so I rewarded myself with a new Brave Combo CD, "Box of
Ghosts". It was a lot of fun finding a non-food reward, and the CD is fabulous!

Back when I first did this - meetings and all - I used to reward myself every week that I lost. I've
stopped doing that this time around........maybe I should start again.........

I don't right now. I'm waiting to get to goal so I can go shopping for a new wardrobe! That will be
my ultimate reward!

Nope, I never did during the losing phase. It wasn't a concious effort or deprivation though, just
nothing I really wanted bad enough and I really didn't need the extra motivation since mine seemed
to run very high throughout the process. When I reached goal though, I did reward myself by
purchasing an Italian Charm bracelet and corresponding charms (numbers and colored stars) to remind
me of the entire journey.

How about a set of fat quarters in your favourite colours? Myself, I think new, smaller bras are a
good reward!

I love Brave Combo! They played at our wedding reception.

I just looked this CD up. It looks great... Might have to get that one.

Well, I thought of that. But, I'm sort of on a stash diet, too. <G>

fat quarters and bras - I love it. Just think - would our parents have shared this info? (g) Well,
maybe fat quarters altho, mom would not have known what they were (nor I had I not had a quilting
secretary) I should post a picture of the quilt she made me.
