Does anyone have any plans on what they're going to do when they reach their goal? Like a big reward for doing it? I've just decided i'm going to get my next tattoo when i reach my goal, something to symbolise me becoming a healthier, stronger person :D I cant wait, i love tattoos and the thought of getting a new one will definitely speed up my weight loss!
Anyone else got something planned?

I got this idea from someone else on this site and I thought it was a very neat idea. I am going to buy a new charm for my bracelet for every mini goal I meet. I like the idea of a charm bracelet telling my weight loss story.

I'm going to set aside some money every month, so that by the time I am at goal I can buy tons of new clothes :D
A tattoo sounds cool too. I might get my first one once the weight is gone...

I want to go to an amusement park when I reach my goal...currently; I have an irrational fear of getting stuck on a ride...like they'll have to call the fire department to get me off...

I've only set a few rewards for my mini-goals so far... Mostly involving buying things for myself! Hehe. What I'm most looking forward to right now is reaching my next mini-goal (40 lbs!!)--I've promised myself that I will go out and buy a bottle of fancy perfume. I still have to go around to dept. stores and try out some scents so I'll know which one I want to get, but I can't wait to have my own "signature" scent. Something about that sounds so womanly, so alluring... Maybe it's just me, heh.

My next mini-goal after this will be Onederland, and I'm sure I will set up another kind of reward for myself when I get to that point. It'll have to be a BIG one, that's for sure! Then after that, hmm... I guess I'll really have to think about my long-term reward. A new wardrobe will certainly have to play into it... :D

In the past, I would reward myself/comfort myself with food items. :o The only way I can satisfy myself with rewards NOW is to make them pretty expensive, so I really feel like I've indulged myself. It sounds pretty bad, but I guess I'm choosing to be broke over being fat! Heh. ;)

I think that I am going to go on a shopping spree and buy some new clothes. Nothing super extravant because I do have some clothes from before I got pregnant that I can't wait to fit into again! And then maybe have another baby but be more fit about it this time.

For my first minigoal of being in wonderland I am going to get a much needed stylish haircut. For my ultimate goal reward, I would finally like to get a tattoo.

I'd have to agree with Faerie, an entire new wardrobe. I cannot wait to go into a store and buy a shirt because it's cute and looks good on me, not because it will hide my stomach and backfat!

Writing a book about my experiance. Once I maintain for 6 months - I am sending it to my publisher.

- Start trying on wedding dresses. (I told him he cant propose to me until I don't have a hula hoop as a wedding ring)

- Perform solo at a concert. Then, record my second CD.

I have mini goals and incentives all lined up. My first mini goal was achived, it was 174 so I reached that and bought my ticket to san fran to see my honey. my next one is 164, and I have goal pants the I hope will fit me then, thats incentive enough. and at 154 I'm cutting off my hair and having a short pixie cut for the first time ever. I've always had long hair (to hide by fat face and neck). My Man isnt' too excited about that one, he likes hair on chicks to be long...but its my head and he understands that.

Ultimate goal: 134, I'm buying myself a new wardrobe and a new car to go with it!

I have shorts and pants that I'm dieing to fit into again.

I'm going to get a massage after I hit 130. They're only 35 dollars for an hour on campus, so why not :)

I am going to go back to my hometown in a brand new outfit and see if I can get some locals to buy me drinks. :-)

I want to have a wardrobe filled with BEAUTIFUL clothes.... not clothes that are cheap... and I bought them only because they fit... but clothes that actually look damn good. I will take fewer, more expensive, classic clothes, over cheap, badly fitting clothes, any day of the week.

I would also love to just chop my hair off... but... I don't know if my face shape will EVER support a shorter haircut :)

The boyfriend says we'll go to Hawaii when I reach my goal... but when I asked if he was paying, he was like, "HA!!!" mmnnn hmnn...

I think the rewards (other than the clothes! ;) ) will be the relief when a picture is taken of me, I won't be obsessing if I have a double chin or not. And to not feel self conscious all the time. And to actually BELIEVE someone when I receive a compliment. It's all that little, day to day stuff, that will make it all worth it -- and will be a bigger reward than anything material...

Oh, definitely shopping will be more fun, not just because of size, but because it will finally make sense to pay for quality, since I won't grow out of it. I can't wait for that.

O/T but you have a CD?! I'm assuming you're a vocalist, or is it an instrument? Either way, that's so cool! I can relate a bit to the performance aspect--I'm in an a cappella group at my school and I can't wait to be something other than "the fat girl with a good voice." There's a girl in our group who is really tiny and beautiful and has a really powerful solo voice, and she always gets approached after our concerts... There's no doubt in my mind that she's known as "the hot girl with the good voice." I wanna be that girl!! :tantrum: Haha. Of course I have confidence in my voice and get plenty of compliments on it now (cuz I'm d*mn good! heh ;)) but it would be awesome to feel good about moving around while I'm performing and not worry about my fat jiggling or that I might be standing in an unflattering way, etc... I am REALLY looking forward to that. I'm an actress, too, and I also can't wait until no role is out of reach for me just because of the way I look! Yea! That'll definitely be one of those "ultimate rewards," like kukristen said.

OMG, you reminded me that I did have one, size 8 I think. Wonder if I still have it tucked away somewhere or if I got rid of it. I just know I have some stuff from that period somewhere, just can't remember where. I'd really like to compare my memory of what size I was with reality.

that would be pretty cool to compare. Lucky you, having the guts to even buy one!

I want to fit into my skinny jeans and to go to my favorite store (a little boutique) and get a few very nice outfits...or maybe not a few! ;) Either way, I'm very excited about it all. I wish I could do a bikini, but the skin on my stomach would not look good at all! Jeans on the other hand are very forgiving. :)
