Rewards for goals reached? I think so.

Sunday, January 05, 2014

So I've been thinking about giving myself rewards for every goal reached.

Since I am at 152lbs now, I figured my rewards would start at 145lbs.

145lbs = new nail polish, lipstick, or other piece of make up
140lbs = new earrings
135lbs = same as 145lb reward, but subject to change
130lbs aka GOAL = new tattoo or piercings!

I figured these would be good incentives for me.

To anyone who reads this- do you have incentives for goals reached? What are your rewards?

    I love the reward system. I also want a new tattoo when I reach my goal. But that is expensive.

    Rewards can be very powerful! You might even consider a small reward for the "halfway point" to 145 since 7 pounds is a significant amount of weight to lose....which I guess would be 149 or 148....just to get you started. My only advice would be keep it flexible because I have experimented with rewards before and things that seem very motivating at first may seem not so much a couple weeks afterward. Also depends how often you personally purchase these items. For me, I sometimes lack the discipline to resist buying a nail polish or something like that if I see it randomly in the store.

    Another idea I read about is to use a friend or family member to hand out the reward. E.g. put $10 for your reward in an envelope, give it to the person to hold and tell them to give it to you only once you weigh in at the stated weight.

    You might also think about something simpler and sillier, like putting stickers on a calendar each time you stay within your calorie limit. It's a very cheap yet potentially very satisfying "reward" system.

    Hi! I have a rewards system in place as well. Some of my things are new shoes (I'm a high heel fanatic), dvds to watch while I workout, an expensive bottle of dry red wine, workout equipment and after I hit my goal...I'm going on a MASSIVE shopping spree for a whole new wardrobe!
