Rewarding myself along the way is a great thing for me. I also buy myself birthday and Christmas gifts.

I have changed what I set as a goal, though. I used to reward "decades" or ten pound weight losses. I now reward behaviors that make me healthier. This means that I set goals for healthier lifestyle and reward reaching my goals of walking a certain distance, staying on plan for a length of time, etc.

This is going to help me focus on the important part of my plan which is to carry this lifestyle no matter what I'm doing or what I weigh.

New Question

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon



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!

I workout indoors. And if I'm up early enough outdoors during the cool morning hours.

Dance like nobody is watching... except Jesus... and his mother... You know what, just dance like you're with your best friends.

I work out during the cooler hours of the morning but it's not traditional working out. I use that time to do my yard work and gardening...which is endless.

I know if I reach a goal I really love to receive comments on mt spark page. It shows I was truly thought of. So naturally, when it's someone else that's what I'd do.

Dance like nobody is watching... except Jesus... and his mother... You know what, just dance like you're with your best friends.

It depends on the person and their goals. I usually comment on their page because others can see that he/she is working hard and accomplishing their goal.

I think it depends upon the goal and how private it is to the other member. Often I will send a goodie so my private comments cannot be read by others. This way I can say things that might per more personal to the member.

I often will comment on their page as well.

Motivators is for a big goal and a successful struggle against something that has been very difficult.

Any of these are good options - it all depends on the person and how 'big' the goal is. If it's someone I've been SparkFriends with for a long time and I know they really struggled to reach a big goal, I might do 'all of the above!'
