For small increments I treat myself to a new book or some songs for my ipod...for the final goal, just knowing that I like what I see and how I feel when I look in the mirror...

Actually, when my scale started going left and I was on the 21lb weight loss journey, I didn't reward myself. Just the compliments alone was enough reward.

£0.50 in a jar everyday I manage to drink 8 glasses of water, or for every 5 minutes spent on the cross trainer.

£1 in a jar for every week I remember to take my pills everyday

New CD/DVD for 2 weeks without missing a walk or 1 week without eating past 8pm.

I haven't gotten any of these rewards yet but I haven't started taking my weightloss that seriously yet.


I also have rewards for every 5 kilos I lose. My first reward is to get highlights in my hair. I was going to get my eyebrows waxed professionally but it was taking so long to lose weight I took matters into my own hands and plucked them. I ended up doing a pretty good job. Other rewards include a new dress and pair of shoes, itunes vouchers, a wii and just dance, a new wardrobe, a bikini etc.

Once I've mantained goal for a few years I will reward myself to a ipad if I haven't gotten one already, a new wardrobe from the highstreet and a trip to Australia. Pretty exciting!

Mani/pedi's and time out with my sister are my favorite. Buying new clothes isn't far behind but when I reach goal I will do all three.

I got a new tattoo for 100 lbs gone. At 150, I got a new wardrobe, and since I have made it to half the person I used to be (I've lost a total of 167lbs), I bought myself a new laptop!

Sparks has helped me with the last two pounds I dropped, but has given me even more motivation (with trackers) to keep up the good work!

When I lost my first five pounds, I bought myself another Wii fitness game - I got Zumba. When I lose my first ten pounds (almost there!) I'm going to get stuff to allow me to run outdoors - a pedometer and an iPod sleeve.

New fitness or running clothes, but I tend to do that as a motivator, even more so than a reward. Plus, if I'm going to keep running, I figure I have to have appropriate clothes for the task.

I really don't reward myself. Don't have the cash to spoil myself. But when I lost 10 pounds, I took a night to sip some wine and read a book and not deal with people. I might do that again when I get to a 20 pound loss.

Shoes, workout clothes, 'pretty days' (mani, pedi, spa). My hubby takes care of the rewards. Just today I got my latest reward - a pair of really cute shoes.

Health first, vanity a very close second.

Weight Loss Goals/Rewards:
5 lbs - new shoes
10 lbs - 'Pretty Day'
15 lbs - white jeans
20 lbs - cosmetic procedure (not what you think!)
25 - new bikini

I want to visit Jamaica with all my heart & I've made that my reward for reaching my goal of losing 82 lbs.
I've also included things like magazine subscriptions, work out gear (high end), new hair style, new digital camera just things I really want that I can't buy till I reach that mile stone :)

it really depends on what i'm working towards (goals). Sometimes it's an outfit, a new pair of tennis shoes, registration for another event, or paying for a new exercise class. I try very hard not to have it be a night out to a new restaurant or something involving food.
