2016 = Year Of Determination and Drive

I have a renewed sense of determination to persistently pursue my goals this year. I want to be able to say at the end of 2016, WOW, you really stayed focused and met the challenge.

For every 7 pounds I lose I will give myself a non food related reward.

1. new hairstyle
2. new makeup
3. new outfit
4. new workout shoes
5. new workout clothes
6. trip to visit some old friends
7. new bathing suit
8. new pretty underwear ...

9. join a gym with Silver Sneakers program (I know I shouldn't wait for this to be a reward, but I want to get a few pounds off and strengthen my muscles first so I can participate without feeling discouraged)
10. buy a whole new wardrobe and throw out the old clothes

I am not sure what order these rewards will be given, I think it depends on what is most needed at the time.
