Angry Rewards

Are you planning any rewards for yourself when you reach goal? I am doing 10 pound rewards with small stuff like new jeans, manicure etc... With the grand prize of a trip to Aruba

What are you doing for yourself?

My reward will be a healthy way of life something I have wanted to reward myself with for years.


Health is MY goal and weight loss is MY gift.

I have also done the 10 pound rewards, such as a manicure, massage, new shirt, new tennis shoes, new video, etc. When I reach goal my hubby is giving me $10 for each pound lost to buy a new wardrobe!!! Three more to go and I'll get $580.00!!!

I love the idea of small rewards at each 10-pound mark! What a great way to give yourself incentive to keep going, and also to reward yourself for a good job. I'm going to do the same thing.

When I reach my goal, I'm going to reward myself with a shopping spree.....first stop will be Victoria's Secret, and then on to find lots of fun new clothes. Maybe I'll even buy a......(gasp).....Bathing Suit! I can't wait!

Well, right now the money is still pretty tight so the treats are allowing myself to buy stuff that helps keep me on track. Today I bought coconut flavoring, and a few SF pudding and jello boxes to make some of those yummy desserts you have all been making!!! Once DH starts his new job and we have saved a bit of money I think I will move to Ottawa into Ellis' apartment and just live the life of leisure!!!! But seriously (scared you, didn't I Ellis?) Probably I'll invest in some new clothes!!!

Lightbulb reward

I read a thread on preventions forum that talked about making a beaded necklace with the beads SBD on it. Then for every pound lost you could add a colored bead. for each week that you follow SBD you can add a gold bead. Someone even suggested you buy small sea shell like beads. It might be an inexpensive way to motivate me!!! I might try it.

I think the idea of setting small goals and rewarding yourself for meeting them! But for me it works better if my goals aren't weight loss oriented, but behaviorial. That way the scale isn't in danger of ending up in the trash. So, if I meet my goal of talking a walk every day this week I think I'll just have to have a nice, long bubblebath! I'd had to scrub the tub first, but what the heck...I'm worth it! He he

Some of the stuff I have planned as rewards are:

A manicure (first I have to grow some nails!)

A new bathing suit in something other than black

A picnic at the park with my 7 yo son!

A session with my sewing machine...guiltfree

We have already booked a cruise for our 10th anniversary, so I guess that will be my BIG reward!


It is easier to suppress the first desire than to satisfy all that follow. -unknown

Hi ladies:

I'm with dentrassi ... mostly broke and buying stuff that keeps me on track is a treat ... and I have clothes in 3 different sizes so unfortunately a shopping spree is out ... I think maybe a really nice piece of jewelry ... some kind of pin to represent my accomplishment.

Congrats didi on the wedding ...

Can I get Idealpersons husband after Ellis???

I think my end reward is going to be getting my entire wardrobe altered. I better start saving now. (I'm kind of a shop-a-holic. There's no way I could replace all these clothes. I love them all too much!!)

Maybe each 10 lbs. will constitute a 30 minute massage. That sounds pretty good. I only have 6 lbs. to go for my first.

My father-in-law also offered my husband and me $10 for every pound we lose before Christmas. And with that and some money I've made having purse parties, I want to buy a new (very expensive) lens for my camera!!!!
