Goals and rewards

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Today has been a great day when it comes to food: I consumed 1,238 calories and met all my nutritional goals except for protein, which was just a little bit too low. I know I need to make protein my priority and make sure I get enough. I also went for a walk; I walked for 50 minutes and burned 230 calories.

I also thought about my goals and rewards today, and wrote them down. I wanted to share them here as well. They are:

Goal: 70 kg (154 lbs)
Reward: get my hair colored, a nice dress, a new profile picture, 50 euros for my "reward bank" (I'll explain this later)

Goal: 66 kg (145 lbs)
Reward: some new make up, 50 euros for my reward bank

Goal: 63 kg (139 lbs)
Reward: new sports bra and workout clothes, an update before-after picture, 50 euros for my reward bank

Goal: 60 kg (132 lbs)
Reward: new shoes, 50 euros for my reward bank

Goal: 58 kg (128 lbs)
Reward: hair extensions, 50 euros for my reward bank

Goal: 56 kg (123 lbs)
Reward: NEW CLOTHES!! (All the old ones will be too big for me to wear and now I can use the money in my reward bank to buy new ones!), an awesome before-after picture!

I'm so excited! I came up with this "reward bank" idea today as I realized that once I reach my goal all my clothes will be too big and I will have to get a whole new wardrobe for the new me. I will stash away 50 euros every month that I reach my goal and use that money to buy new, amazing clothes for myself once I reach my goal weight! It'll be so much fun :) I can't wait.

Here's a picture I took of myself today:

And here's a picture that was taken on Valentine's Day of this year:

I'm 33 pounds lighter and so much happier. I can't wait to see what I look like once I reach my goal!!

    I know the feeling, and I know many others here do too. When one is finally able to take weight and age off of their bodies and truly see the difference it is like, "WHY ON EARTH DID I LET IT GO THIS LONG". Even at your heavier weight, you were a pretty lady, but now, you are awesome. When you reach that goal of yours, you will see even more beauty coming out. ROCK ON.
