I just made a Word document that lays out all the ways in which I'll reward myself for reaching each of my target weight goals. I've decided to reward myself in a small (NON-FOOD) way for every 5 pounds I lose, in a bigger way for every 10 I lose, etc., with one huge reward for reaching my final goal. Having it all written out, with encouraging words for myself, and sitting in the middle of my computer desktop is the ultimate motivation!

Reward yourself with a new type of exercise or sport, one that reinforces your weight-loss progress & fitness goals.
At each mini-goal I reach, I reward myself with a new exercise DVD--something different that I haven't tried yet or couldn't try because I wasn't fit enough. It gives me satisfaction to know I'm progressing enough to do new things, plus it keeps my interest piqued to vary my routines!
