S/C/G: 292.2/138.6/146

Height: 5'9"


Since my size changes so often, I have opted for rewarding myself with shoes (a new-found love!), jewelry, and handbags. They'll stay with me when I get to my goal size; for now, I buy most of my clothing at thrift stores and donate back when I go down a size.

I also treated myself to a bike (hadn't ridden in years because of weight), sailing classes, and a YMCA membership. Things that keep you active are good reward incentives: tennis racket, new sneakers, rollerblades, a kayak excursion, etc.

I also really like the idea of a charm bracelet with a charm for each 5 or 10lbs.

For my 100lb loss I bought a serger for myself; something I've been wanting for years. For my goal reward I'll either go on a mini-vacation or possibly buy a sea kayak.
