Yes rewarding is good whether it is money or 1 hour of leisure we can do it so I will introduce a new thread now.

Do you have a reward system in place? How does it work? What kind of rewards do you give yourself?

I just noticed the "goodies" on SP. I have already thought about putting back $5 for every pound I lose, to spend on new clothes when I reach my goal weight. But that still seems like such a long way off. I haven't come up with anything as far as rewarding myself for 5 pound losses, or smaller goals like that. But I have thought about maybe using the goodies as a reward system. This is what I was thinking...

Right now I have 7 daily goals that I track. If I miss no more than one day for a goal, then the next week I upgrade it. Otherwise I haven't become proficient in that enough, and I continue it the following week. So far, I've not been doing very well at all on them. If I gave myself 1 point for each goal I can check off as done then that would be 7 points per day, or 49 points per week. At the end of the week, when I reevaluate my goals, I could allow myself to use those points (the points I gave myself for reaching my daily goals, not the points SP gives for reading emails, posting, etc) for the goodies. The larger items, I would have to "save up" for, which would add motivation.

What do you think?
