Smile reward?

I see a lot of you have mini goals, that is awesome! I was wondering, once you achieve your mini goal, do you reward yourself for a job well done?

Nope, seeing the new weight on the scale and on my ticker here is reward enough.

Also, as a single person, how/when I spend money is entirely under my control so I pretty much buy what I want so the concept of rewarding myself by buying something like new clothes or pedicure doesn't have a special feel to it.

I just got to go down a water slide at our YMCA...there was a weight limit of 250 when I joined I was 260 now 237 and last night I went down that slide! Sure was fun, but I only needed to do it once. My 7 year old daughter was super proud of me and that is a great reward too!

I did at first but now I find the weight loss is reward enough. Nothing could beat it!

I don't really have set rewards for achieving mini-goals - it is rewarding enough to reach them! I do treat myself to new clothes or fitness-related items if I need them, but I don't wait until I've made a particular milestone to do so.

I don't have mini goals set up....but I've set up a "diet account" and for every pound I lose, I transfer $10 bucks over! And if I gain, I transfer it back out....

Idea is.....once I finally get down to my goal wait...I'm going on a HUGE shopping spree!!

Well my reward is seeing the number on the scale. I have really mini goals of "I want to see two more lbs next Thursday" and when I see it, it motivates me that much more. I have done some small rewards like a new pair of flip flops or a cute pair of earrings but only when I happen to see them. I don't intentionally seek them out.

I love the diet account idea Kimiko! I have an automatic withdrawal after each pay check that I have put in to my savings--for new clothes after everything is said and done! I like the idea though of submitting an additional $10 a lb and subtracting if gaining. I weigh myself weekly so that could really add up!

Thanks for the idea!

No...I wont reward myself for something I should be doing for myself anyway...seeing the numbers..inches & sizes drop is my reward. Buying new clothes that fit & taking care of yourself is a given....it comes with the territory. I dont reward myself for showering & brushing my teeth every day each month.....

No I haven't really in the past.

I agree the loss is reward enough. But I have seen the Loss Account idea before and I want to do it I just can't afford it without regular income that exceeds my living expenses. It just wouldn't be possible right now. Once I have full time income I can count on I may transfer to a Loss account $3-5 per lb but more so I can afford to buy a new wardrobe. Have to see it depends on income.

I am going to do something special for every 10% loss. 10% may not seem like a lot, but it takes a while to actually do it!

When I get to goal, there will be a big reward though.

One for every 5 lbs lost.
Startin' over: got below 180 in 2009 and regained. This time I'm not dieting. I'm learning to live like a 140-pound person.

I didn't the first 80 lbs...but now I'm finding myself wanting new things with heavier price tags (like a new matress, desperately) so when I hit my 100lbs I'm going to start shopping for one. Other than that, I don't have any set rewards...my xmas present this year is a healthy body! Best thing I could have EVER done for myself.

2010: Start 1/18/10 264lbs, lost 92.4 by 9/27/10 (171.6lbs)
2011: Got married, gained most of it back
2012: Birth of my son, gained the rest back plus 30lbs over the next 2 years
My new start date is 12/29/14...and I'll keep up this lifestyle forever, so my son will never know an obese mother and he will make healthy choices too.
