I also like to buy new music as a reward to use while exercising. It is great to change up the tunes once in a while. I am also a magazine addict, so I will buy one of those to read too. emoticon

Oh yea - shopping!
Also buying new music for workouts.
Massages are also good if you have the $$.

I do not allow myself to use food as a reward. I have boughten myself a 5 lb. weight plate, a pair of cool earrings, some workout clothes.

I buy hair flowers, nail polish and potted plants. Like the other poster said, things you want but don't need.

Food as a reward is a no no for me. Here are mine:

5 lbs - new sneakers
10 lbs - eyebrow wax
15 lbs - manicure
25 lbs- mani & pedi
35 lbs - facial
46 lbs - massage (20% of my starting weight)
55 lbs - new lingerie and work out clothes
65 lbs - spa day

It's fun to have these little rewards waiting for me at each milestone.

Clothes! I'm basically having to rebuild my wardrobe after losing a lot of weight, so I reward myself with buying new clothes. They're never expensive, I shop clearance racks at the outlet mall or at places like Target or H&M.

My mom uses pedicures for her rewards.

Yes, I always rewarded myself with food. It was a learned behavior from childhood.

I reward myself with things I want, but don't need.

My latest reward when I reach my goal weight is a new Under Armour gym bag :)

Some of my past rewards have been... a Fitbit, a new pair of shoes, an eReader sleeve, a new purse, an extra personal training session and so on. I use the $$ rewards for milestones. I use "free" rewards every day (bubble bath, foot soak, painting my nails)

I work extremely hard and I've always used food as a reward. Finish an assignment = piece of chocolate. A on an exam = cheeseburger. While I think that treats are okay in moderation, these rewards have really been adding up. Did anyone else used to do this? What do you give yourself as a reward now?
