I haven't decided on a reward yet. I think my reward will be fitting back into those jeans!

Reaching my goal is the reward in itself because I will be healthier and feel better-

But the reward idea has always been difficult for me. I look at other people, who have this great reward systems in place, and they actually reach their weight loss goals and I want to learn from them.

Losing weight has been an incredibly difficult battle for me, because I am hypothyroid and have asthma and allergies. With these issues come lots of challenges with losing weight. Being tired due to hypothyroid is not a great motivator to work out and not working out means automatically gaining weight, due to the thyroid problem- so it is a vicious circle. (Even on meds, hypothyroidism is quite challenging). But joining this problem feels like a big step in the right direction as there is a lot of talk about goals.

Ultimately losing weight is the reward itself. AND I am looking forward to reading answers from others in the team for inspiration.

How will you reward yourself when you reach a goal (short-term or long-term)?

Reaching my goal is a reward in itself!

Something fun--a party, a vacation, or some new clothes

Why wait 'til then? I reward myself along the way!

Doesn't affect me too much other than having to do it earlier in the day since the pugs get overheated really fast in Los Angeles dry heat.

My husband and I have been geocaching. It's basically hide and seek with small treasures hidden places all over the world. I have a GPS and I look up the GPS coordinates online, then go find a surprise. I get so excited when we get close looking for them in the woods or in other out of the way places. It's nice to just get out and hike around.... and with a purpose

'Other' ... I look out the window to SEE the outside while I walk on the treadmill or ride on the exercise bike INside :P
It's either that or don't exercise at all ... I am so NOT a summer person.

How does the summer heat affect your workouts?


I work out during the cooler hours of the day (morning or evening)

I work out outdoors despite the heat

I take my workouts to the pool

I work out indoors

I lower the intensity of my workouts

I don't work out at all when it's too hot!

I love water sports & swimming, especially in the HOT summer... That way I can still exercise and not feel like I've been run through the dryer.
