I really like the idea of rewarding yourself for reaching smaller weight loss goals in order to keep yourself motivated to keep going. I have devised a plan of my own to keep me motivated. Hopefully some of these ideas can keep you going too!
***First off for every inch and/or pound I lose, I deposit $1 in my weight loss jar. At the end of my weight loss journey, I plan on using the money to fund my new wardrobe I will need when I shed the weight.
In addition, I have come up with the following ways to reward myself and stay motivated.
Lose 10 pounds- Buy a tanning package (remember, being tan makes you look thinner)
Lose 20 pounds- Go out to a movie with my boyfriend
Lose 30 pounds- Go get my nails and hair done
Lose 40 pounds- Night out on the town with friends and my boyfriend
Lose 50 pounds- Go to a game (I love the STL Cardinals, STL Blues, and Fighting Illini)
Lose 60 pounds- Buy new makeup and jewelry
Lose 70 pounds- Go get a facial
Lose 80 pounds- Get professional pictures take (to show off my new bod...hello)
Reach Goal Weight- Go on a beach vacation with my family and my boyfriend!
***Just remember to be reasonable with your goals. Before making my list I did some research and found that for my age and height I could stand to lose 100 pounds so that is my goal and what my list is based off of.
