Goals and Rewards
I know that reaching a certain weight is reward enough, but for just a little extra encouragement, I give myself a little reward if I reach a goal. Like when I hit 10 lbs; I got a manicure, 20 lbs; a new pair of walking shoes, 30 lbs; I got another manicure, 40 lbs; a new outfit...as for 50 lbs? I think I'm gonna go get the industrial piercing I've been wanting forever. And my next big goal after that is going to be to reach 270 (which will bring my BMI rating to "obese" and not "morbidly obese"...yay!) by September 12th, which is 4 months from my start date. And I'm going to get a hooded sweatshirt...which may sound kind of boring or un-momentous, but in my adult life I've never had a hooded sweatshirt. They never fit well and the neck was too darn tight. So it's kind of a big thing for me. Just one step closer!
