I found my goal weight reward!

Saturday, February 09, 2013

Ever since I started my weightloss journey, I had no idea what my big goal weight reward would be.

Well I found it today! There's a vintage boutique in Montréal where you can do make over and photo shoot in a vingate 50s style!!! I've always love these style, weither it's the pinup look, the sultry pencils skirt or the lovely queen of the house full circle dresses. The price for a photoshoot including hair, make-up and 3 styles is expensive: 425$
But I SO want to do this!
Here's the website:

I've already purchase a group offer coupon for a shooting (44$ this time instead of 320$) but I have to use it max in august, and I wont' be at my goal weight. And it will be a regular photo shoothing (although I might decide to go see my hairdresser before, to have a nice look).

Do you think it stupid to pay that much money to have your photo taken? Are you fond of the 50's look?

    Photos are special memories frozen in time. I cherish all the silly photos I have taken on vacation. They bring back the feeling of when you were there. You remember things long forgotten about things you did, and how you looked. Why do you think wedding photos are so popular?

In ten or twenty years you will cherish that photo, so I say yes spring for it!

    $44 is chump change for any shoot, go for it!! When you sell all of your old clothes that are hanging off you after goal weight, you should have enough$$ to get the biggie shoot!!

    Who gives a rat's @ss what any of us think of this, this is your goal, and I think it's perfect for you.

If I wanted my weight loss goal award to be a lima bean covered in gold to throw in the panama canal, then dammit, that's what it's going to be!

I think it's perfect: it's something that you've wanted for a long time, that YOU think is super cool, it's something that will motivate you to achieve your goals, AND it's something special that you wouldn't get for yourself ordinarily.

As an aside: HELL YEAH that's super effing cool! I wish I lived in Montreal so I could do it. Wow. I'm very jealous.

    And as a PS: it's not all THAT expensive for a professional photoshoot either. It's totally worth it IMO!

    Ah! I love that! It's so fun and funky and silly and all the best kinds of stupid! It IS ridiculous to spend so much cash on a photoshoot- thats what makes it the PERFECT goal weight reward. Go for it girl! No shame :)

    I think that if that motivates you, then it's not stupid at all. We all have unique goals and/or rewards- as long as its motivating to you, then it's awesome!!
