I know this question has been asked before, but I am asking again lol. What are some rewards you give yourself for hitting mini goals. I recently had to delete my half way mini goal. My half way point is 200lbs and I had originally said I would buy a coach purse, but this weekened I was out with my dad and he bought me one. We saw them and I was like I love that purse and he said well I will buy it for you because of how well you are doing losing weight. So he bought it lol. I couldn't say no, it's so cute pink and purple perfect for spring.

So what are some other idea's? I already got manicure, pedicure, vacation, new wardrobe.

I tend to give myself 15 lb rewards, so they're fairly small. A new yixing-style teapot was one. A theology book I was jonesing after but was too expensive to just buy myself was another. Hiking boots. A new necklace and earrings. X dollars worth of iPod downloads. A new fishing pole. A lovely butterfly bush for the back garden (and my husband planted it!).

I do rewards based on the percentage of my starting weight I have lost.

Under 200 pounds is a biggie for me as that will be 20%. I had planned to get my iPhone then, but I broke down and got it for my 10% goal instead.

Instead for my under 200, my BFF is going to gift me a SCUBA life support system, which is an awesome reward, and will make me more active.

My rewards are kinda big, but I am going slow so there is quite a bit of time to save up between each one.

5%: new hair style -- Gotten
10%: iPhone -- Gotten
15%: Chiropractor's appointment -- 2.5 lbs to go
20%: SCUBA gear
25%: 6 months of horse back riding lessons
30%: Kindle
35%: Spa Day
40%: Embroidery machine

I did rewards at 10 lb increments:

10lbs - very cute, expensive sandals from Sundance (still have them!)
20 lbs - massage
30 lbs - clothes
40 lbs - expensive cut/color from a fancy salon
50 lbs - massage (had the same masseuse which was kinda fun, she noticed!)
60 lbs - clothes
1 year maintenance - a tattoo!

Bias - work for Sony ;)

One of my rewards (first mini-goal, 10% weight loss) was an iHome and cheap DVD player for my workout area in the garage - I use them every day.

Still thinking about the next one, which is a big one! At about 219, I'll have lost 50 lbs, the 2nd 10%, and be halfway to my intermediate goal (healthy weight of 169). So, I haven't decided - probably it will be something to help me out with hiking and biking this summer (e.g. new day pack, bicycle computer, etc).

for my 10 % loss I gave myself a new hairstyle that I've been wanting to try. It worked out well thankfully lol.

My next goal will be rewarded with a mani and pedi.

I do my mini goals in ten pound so i can look forward to little things hopefully all the time! the more i loose though the better they get!

Loose 10 pounds= New nail polish opi
Loose 20 pounds= new work out pants/top
Loose 30 pounds= new backpacking backpack!
Loose 40 pounds= new passport!
Loose 50 Pounds= Buy Ticket for London
Loose 60 Pounds= buy new dress
Loose 70 pounds= buy new knee high flat boots!
Loose 80 Pounds= leather jacket
Loose 90 pounds= New Jacket for backpacking
Loose 100 pounds= backpacking trip to Europe and a surprise visit with my parents and little brother in Germany!

The reason i chose to backpack is because my dad and mom have been posted to Germany and i really want to see them...
Also when i was 16 i went to France and when i came back i vowed i will not be fat the next time i go back.. A bit heartbreaking but i would really like to shop there!

My 230 mini-goal was the first I had met and, as I've posted, I got my first capris in 8 years and a new haircut.

I will probably reward myself in some way when I get under 200, but it will depend on my needs at the time. There's a good chance it will have to be clothes... I'm just now getting to where a lot of my clothes are really too big to wear comfortably.

I just randomly come up with goals. They change constantly. My next big goal at 215 is going to be a new pair of nice shades. I am loving some Maui Jim and Raybans...we shall see. I bought a coach bag when I lost 50lbs. I love it. It is like my second child or something.

You could always get the matching Coach wallet! :)

Matching Coach wallet is a good idea. I may have to look into that!

Check out my title by my avatar! My husband said that if I lost 100 lbs I could get a new Louis vuitton! <3

50lbs and I'm buying THE corset that I've been eyeing for months but have been too fat to fit into!
