As I got started, new cookbook, new piece of exercise equipment (mat, dumbbells, heavier dumbbells, etc). Now, I look for new running shoes, new exercise cloths, regular cloths, sign up for another 5k, etc. When I get closer to my goal, new outfits NOT from Goodwill, hair done, mani and pedi,

Well aside from having to buy new clothes, I do not give my self a reward for keeping my body healthy. I feel that I owe it to myself and to all who know me to keep my body like a fine tuned machine. America our body is the only thing that you can really call your own.

The most effective reward system I have used is to set up a number of things that I take time for myself to do when I have the time. Examples include exfoliating, using face mask, shaving, doing my nails, wearing jewelry, purchasing a song for my iPod, getting a bang trim, moisturizing, wearing makeup, getting a massage, pedicure, taking progress pictures, etc. Then, I tell myself I can't do those things until I lose the weight. Once I reach the goal weight for that particular reward, I reward myself and continue to do that thing when necessary as long as I stay at or below that weight. However, if I gain weight, I have to stop doing it until I lose it again. Every time I reach a goal, I feel special and entitled to do that for myself and it becomes extremely motivating. If I really want to do something and can't because I'm not there yet, that is very motivating as well! You have to set it up right so you're not going a month without shaving your legs, but it works great for me. : )

I know some of these will probably have been said before, but there are lots of things that I do to reward myself when I reach a goal. If the goal was smaller I might do something like buy some spices I don't have to encourage using less salt when I cook, or I'll buy some fruit that's a bit more expensive or not in season (my family's on a bit of a tight budget) like starfruit or dragon fruit.

If it's a bigger goal then I'll do something like get my hair done or dyed, buy a new game to play on the Wii (I really like the DDR games), or if I can I'll save up to go to a water park and spend all day swimming and going down water slides, which is a fun way to be active.

But of course these are just things that I like, there are lots of different things you can do!

"If you always do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten." -Anthony Robbins

I try on clothes in the size I was ans the size I think I am and when I find the right size in something I love I buy it.

My new motto: Tired of starting over? Stop quitting!

I have been very faithful with activity program. It is something I enjoy and have some control over -- unlike home / family / work life. So I pre-paid a gym membership instead of being on a payment plan. I have given myself a vote of confidence because I'm worth it. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I noticed my past frustration when equipment doesn't work as expected at home (stretch bands; weights peeling; distractions with "housework" calling my name -- why only me?). So this way, I do what I need to do, and use the home options as plans B, C and D.

After trying out reward and punishment systems multiple times last year I've come to the conclusion that they don't work for me.

I am definitely getting a whole new wardrobe when I reach my goal weight though (it'd be practical since I'll need clothes that fit).

Call me Sandy. My goals are swimming in a 1 mile open water sea swim, running a 5K race and performing 50 push-ups in 1 minute.

Not for weight loss, but after my quarterly doctor's appointments to check on my diabetes, if the news is good, I have gone to go get a little coconut cream tart across the road at the bakery. But...that doesn't seem right, does it?? Sugar for good blood sugar control??

Today I will go, get my good news, and then find some new way to celebrate.
