I was reading somewhere,might have been here or maybe another website, so sorry if i am stealing someones idea. But someone brought up for every pound they are losing they are putting a dollar back in a piggy bank for when they meet their goal weight they are going to take the money and go clothes shopping thats what im going to do. So far i have lost 2 pounds and i am going to buy me a piggy bank that has to be broken to get into and im going to put a dollar for every pound. Just a thought but i thought about for every time i gain at weigh in also putting 2 dollars in the bank. It will keep me motivated.

I can't wait.. I was thinking that I should just go ahead and have my last child and just go for goal. I want to wait until after I've had another child before I get my body back...

2) Navel Ring
3) Booty Skirt... (not to wear around my children )
4) Wardrobe... (Professional clothes... I would never wear a suit with these broad shoulders and back.)

The professional photo shoot is just 2 weeks away!! EEK!! but I'm not at goal.

The ultimate reward is bikinis and a holiday in Cyprus for clubbing in Iyanapa! That's next year. I've never worn a bikini. Ever.

That and a shopping spree in Bloomie's sale.

Was thinking about a tatoo also, I like the Nike swoosh idea!!

I'm sorry but I just have to say this... only ONE?!

Go for broke!

Yes there are some super-talented men out there, and sometimes, well, don't judge a book by its cover The most conservative-looking, spectacle-wearing, slighty pudgy guys can be AMAZING. Ahem.

Ok, off topic, sorry there, carried away. Cold shower now. Carry on!

I met my husband online, and I'm very proud of that fact.
He is truly my soul mate & best friend EVER. He loves me just the way I am.
He encourages me when I say I want to lose weight, because he knows I'll be happier.
But if I chose to never lose a pound, he would still find me just as attractive.
He's one of the 5 best things to ever happen to me. (My four kids being the other four.)

I met my DH online as well! Just two years ago, in a Yahoo! chatroom... that HAD to be a miracle from above if anyone's ever chatted THERE! He was in the Army here in Texas, out now, and stayed here with me instead of going back to D.C. He's the best thing that ever happened to me (besides our kiddos!) and treats me like a queen. He's very supportive of every decision I have ever made.

Berkshire girl--shame on you for making me blush!!! I totally agree with you, a reserved man can literally shock the pants off ya!

If I EVER get to my goal weight (I don't think I ever will), I'm gonna have that new laser surgery that's supposed to remove stretch marks and I'm gonna buy a shirt that's cut in the front down to my belly button (which will be pierced, as another "reward")

When we hit our goals, Hubby and I are going to take a week or two and go exploring New England. I'm turning into a bit of a history buff, and it will be nice to be able to walk around and tour historic sites to my heart's content, without getting out of breath! (A couple of glances from guys wouldn't hurt either, I have to admit.)

Oooh, I like this thread.

SueJo, I didn't see the "new clothes", I thought you were after Orlando Bloom. Lol! Isn't everyone?

Ditto with the itty bitty skirt. And some knee-high boots to go with it, just because they'll actually zip up. Also french connection jeans. They're so skinny... Nothing hugely original. Was gonna buy an iPod but I couldn't wait.

At fifty I can't think of anything I haven't worn already - I just want to wear smaller sizes and be a babe. There are a lot of girls with great figures (although I see many many women half my age who are quite large) but at the half-century mark it's a lot easier to stand out if you're a tidy size six who lifts weights and "strolls" at 4 mph.

I will say I'm planning on living in a warmer climate eventually and I'll be much happier in shorts and tank tops without flab.
