I am the queen of rewarding myself. I've lost these first 20-25 pounds so many times, I had better be! But this time I've got the added twist that our financial stability is up in the air. I pulled out my reward chart for last time, and most of them are money related, like at 15lbs I got a massage.
So this time I'm just going to try to focus on the positives and embrace each NSV. Currently I'm a week in and 4lbs down.
At 10lbs, my fat pants will all feel comfortable on me, even fresh out of the dryer.
At 15lbs I'll have more energy, my shins and knees will hurt less.
At 20lbs I'll feel comfortable climbing up on DH's lap for a impromptu makeout session without feeling like a complete whale.
At 25lbs I'll feel comfortable to head outside with my son and have a awesome dance in the front yard.
At 30lbs I'll be reminded of how freaking awesome it is to open at my closet and not be afraid of how something is going to look on me.
At 35lbs I think I'll get my haircut... this one maybe a money one, but I've been the only one to cut my hairs in years. It's long and that needs to change.
At 40lbs... well the sky is the limit. I'll start to allow myself to spend a little bit of money on me, getting rid of my college wardrobe slowly and feeling proud of who I am.
