I'm plan to get a massage for a bigger reward. Seeing results is good enough for me as far as small rewards go. Hopefully as I shrink it will require new clothes so there is that also. Bubble bath sounds like a pretty good reward too. The kind you take where nobody is knocking on the door or asking you where they left their jacket at. lol

@Editor: That's fantastic! I'm slowly getting to that point, I think, but in the meantime, it helps to have something else fun to look forward to as a motivational tool....

Completing the exercise is all I need as a reward.

So I've put together a list of rewards to earn at different Spark Point intervals. It's been very motivating! Though a lot of the rewards are still money-based (i.e., purchasing things like teas and exercise equipment I'd like to have as I'm able). I'd still like to find more non-monetary ways of rewarding myself so that I can keep doing it even when my wallet is light...!

You can decide at what intervals you want to use big and small rewards. I work full time, take care of a house and yard, have a child and husband that are very active so my personal time is very limited. i also do not have much time for socializing with friends so my big rewards are personal time. My small rewards are usually going shopping at a second hand store or garage sales for either fitness equipment. i have gotten some pretty good deals from garage sales but i look for opportunities every day to stock pile rewards for later emoticon

Great thread! I think your rewards should be whatever motivates YOU....Start small for small steps, then write down a big reward for bigger accomplishments....I do fitness and weight watchers magazines, hand creams, small jewelry items,etc...Bigger rewards for me are clothing and exercise items such as a new Zumba outfit or a new golf club...Right now..I am dreaming of wearing a Zumba skirt when I feel like I look good enough!! I have about 20 pounds to go...! After I reach my goal weight...I would like to buy a vavoom dress...and have a special evening out with my husband....!!!!! That's about 35 pounds away.......!!! I will GET there!! YOU will too!!!!!! Best wishes. emoticon

Hello! I'm curious to know what rewards people use and how often you give them to yourself. Obviously sweets aren't the greatest reward, so...what do you use instead? Do you buy yourself something? Take yourself out someplace nice? Do your rewards generally cost money? Do they involve other people, or just yourself? What would you rate as a "small" reward vs. a "bigger" one?

I'm trying to figure out how best to reward myself, and since I'm not rich (but would still like to do things like buy some fitness equipment and/or fun things for myself now and then), I'm struggling for what the best rewards might be....
