REWARDS FOR BLC21

Monday, January 14, 2013

This was the hardest one for me to decide on. I am thinking more on the line of "me time" to do things I enjoy. Like perhaps crocheting, reading, etc. There isn't really anything that I want to buy that would inspire me that much at this point. Perhaps a Kindle! I just don't know yet. Anyone out there have any ideas that have worked for them?

I am thinking of breaking it down into 10# increments, perhaps, for reward levels. Anyway I have been thinking about it and if a light bulb comes on, it will go on my reward list!! lol

Also something that I didn't do before was reward myself for doing daily and weekly activities. I think I need to start doing that. Before it was ok, you lost weight, so you get a reward. Ok, you gained, so no reward for you!! I am not so sure this was a good idea. It was too all or nothing.

    I think weight loss is something I have never been able to "control" so it was not a good goal but a reward in itself. The BEHAVIOUR that I want to encourage though I think is worth rewarding... so rewarding the number of minutes exercised or number of healthy meal choices made works better for me. I started with things that yes, I would do anyways, but I made a point of linking them with the positive behaviour. If I can stick with a plan despite whatever life throws at me I think it is sometimes a miracle. My first BL I had stickers on a chart.

Hair cut.
Pick out a pattern and wool (or in my case harp music)
Book. Reading time for said book.
A "date" with a special friend for coffee. Actually girlfriend time is the BEST motivator for me.
TV time. It worked for the kids getting their homework done, lol.

Thanks for reminding me of the importance of rewards and associating things I start to take for granted with good behaviours..

    You're doing great the biggest reward will be the confidence you gain. I ahve done the reward thing a few times and think once I am on the mend from my surgery I will need to reconsider and make a new "rewards" program. Once you are close to goal or at a plateau rewarding strictly for weight loss gets frustrating and lost if its been too long between losses and maybe rewarding for consistancy and effort is a better route...maybe it will help with that backward movement you see alot at the end of plan. I don't think the rewards need to be anything big or expensive.
