I was sitting here trying to think about why I truly deserve a treat. At first, I couldn't think of a "good reason", but I realized that I was being too hard on myself (which happens a lot, you know?!). I have decided that there are tons of little reasons that add up to me. I use rewards to make my success in weight loss, but with my weight loss comes so many other things. I ENJOY running!! Holy moly! I have more energy to run around playing with my own 2 year old and the children I work with each day. I LOVE it! I have more confidence -- who knew a little weight could add so much confidence?!
Most importantly, I deserve a treat because I am doing it for real this time! It's not a dream anymore -- it's reality.. I think anyone who puts the effort and attention into losing weight deserves a treat. It certainly is not easy!
You can see some of the rewards I use on my page. Some of it includes new workout clothes, new underwear, a relaxing night to myself (I do need this every so often!), a new outfit, etc. I plan to get a pedicure after reaching -50 lbs. since I have never gotten one before -- that's my big reward so far!
