I buy new clothes. I need to cultivate some respect and love for my body, so new clothes are the easiest way to help me see the changes. It would be lovely to have a big pot of money to spend at goal, but I'd rather feel gorgeous at every weight I go through rather than waiting for a big spending spree at the end of it having had to wear stuff that didn't fit all the way down.

I am lucky in that I can (just) afford it, as long as I buy cheap stuff. I never buy anything expensive, but I do buy bits and pieces most weeks. The money might be better spent paying off my debt quicker, but I can still buy clothes and pay off my debt slowly, so that will do for me. If I start hating the way I look I might lose motivation, but if I constantly see myself in new (and tiny) clothes it gives me the psychological boost that i need.
