Default What will you gift yourself with when you lose the weight?

I'm sure I'm not the only one who fantasizes about what their life will be like when they finally lose weight. Everything like being active, daily confidence, clothes shopping, will all somehow be better! But is there one dangling carrot that you will reward yourself with when you finally succeed? A vacation, a cruise, plastic surgery, what will you gift yourself with?

For me I've got it all planned out. When I lose the weight I'm going to hire a personal stylist. I've already researched it and found someone in my area and have even spoken with her about it. She will come and pair down my closet, get rid of anything that doesn't fit or look good on me. She'll then take me shopping and help me get all the basic things that I need, you know like a good pair of jeans and black pants, a trenchcoat, a LBD, a bathing suit (yikes) etc. Then she'll style me for several outfits and take pictures of me in those outfits and create a look-book of my closet so that I can recreate those outfits myself. Sort of like a closet directory hehe! I've started a special savings account just for this! I've been so motivated just by planning this!

I have permission to take 100 from my savings account for each stone I lose (The account my family set up when I was born) - I'm going to take it all out when I hit goal (probably 300) and buy myself all those pretty clothes I've always wanted I even have a private Tumblr full of the clothes I'm going to buy, I use it as inspiration.

I have several things I'm going to get for myself when I finally hit official goal weight.

Third ear hole piercing
Mani/Pedi (Normally I do these myself and only a handful of times have I gone to actually get these done but I'll actually pay to have it done this time)
Buy all new clothes
Get a puppy
Go to Kings Island/and or Kentucky Kingdom if it's open back up by that time (I haven't been to an amusement park for several years now and I was heavy back then too so it was never fun. I want to be small, wear whatever I want, and ride all the rides that I can)

That's it for right now. I'm most excited about the clothes. I look at clothes sites all the time trying to figure out what my style is going to be and what I like. I've realized that I'm a girly girl so I can't wait to buy clothes that actually show off that. I used to love wearing shorts and skirts and dresses. Can't wait to get back into that stuff! To officially wear juniors..I'm salivating just thinking about it...lmao.

Oh my gosh, the personal stylist sounds like so much fun! That's a great reward!

I'm going to get two fear themed tattoos on my thighs. One thigh will say "Expose yourself to your deepest fear" with a mashup of two or three of the most personally frightening Stephen Gammell illustrations (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark). The other thigh will read "After that fear has no power" with something I drew representing my fear of death and decay. This is a weight loss goal and a fitness goal (Nice legs through running and weight lifting) that I'm not allowed to get until after my wedding. This is so I have to maintain it for a bit and also so I don't spend hundreds of dollars on the tattoos when I have a wedding to pay for.

My friends are going to throw me a party when I lose 50lbs!!! I see that this sort of sounds condescending - but actually it was my idea. Even though I have much more than 50 lbs to lose, at the beginning that seemed practically unattainable to me - so I decided to add motivation - I am having a party and a bunch of friends are promising me presents for when I reach that goal!

Shopping spree! Hoping it will coincide with either my birthday (September) or Christmas, for the extra spending money I get around that time

I'm hoping to do a little dream vacation and go shopping for new clothes in person! This is pretty huge seeing as we don't have an actual mall anywhere near by. Maybe even a spa day. These all sound fabulous!

Mini Goals!:
10% Loss 289 | 20% Loss 257 | 30% Loss 225 | Under 200! 199 | 40% Loss 193 | Overweight BMI 185 | 50% Loss 160 | Normal BMI 154

There's a dress shop that I pass almost every day. It has beautiful dresses and suits that I just drool over. I think it's a bespoke dressmaker. I love the colours, the fabrics, the style. I will buy myself a dress from that shop - but only when I have a suitable event to attend. They are very, very dressy.

Lose 25lbs by 15 April (10 Mar)
Get to 100 kg (220) by 1 May (7 Apr)
Be 205 by race day - 14 July
One-derland by 1 Sept

When I reach Onederland, I'm going to get my cover up tattoo.
When I reach the 180s, I am going to get my second tattoo on my forearm.
Also when I reach the 180s, which is my goal weight range, I am going to buy a flattering bathing suit, two new dresses, a pair of heels, a new corset, three new bras, and new panties!

My husband and I are taking our honeymoon later this year, so I hope to be in Onederland by then!
for every 5 lbs I lose!

I'm going to buy a necklace to wear all the time - to represent the journey and also to be a tangible reminder to stay on track.

Right now, I'm thinking something like this, but the style I decide on may change by the time I get there!

Restart 1/6/13 - GOAL (for now) back to prior low
