Learning to reward myself without food is a huge step for me. I've learned to put aside $2-3 for every pound I lose. When I've lost 5 lbs, then I use the money to buy something fun--a new lipstick or nail polish, or a dress or coat from the resale store. It's a way to celebrate being a little more beautiful as I become healthier.
"Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship."
2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
