Rewarding Myself

I decided that one of the bests ways to keep myself motivated is to reward myself every so often. Now the old way I would have done this would have involved an extra cheat day or a meal out, but no more. I’ve decided that I will be buying myself a special something every 20 pounds that is equal in dollars (or very near to) the corresponding weight loss. So, if I lose 80 pounds, I get to buy something around 80 dollars as a reward. Sounds good, right? I’m thinking that for every multiple of 10% I lose, I will buy myself something else small – perhaps a new shirt or pants? We shall see.

Here are several of items I have lined up to purchase so far:

  1. 20 pounds lost – This adorably cute Monkey Snuggie.
  2. 40 pounds lost – This fun Fossil Wallet in blue floral.
  3. 60 pounds lost – This purse bag I’ve been eyeing for a while.

I’m sure I’ll figure other things out as they come up, but for now I don’t want to think too far ahead. =P

And PS. I bought myself that Snuggie and should have it Monday evening. 😉
