I wish I were going back for the summer! We were going to christen my nephew this summer but my sister decided to do it in December. I hope to be down 50 pounds by then, but I am going to keep my goal small... 6 to 7 lb this month (2.7-3 kilos if you are using metric).

By the way, I wear leggings in the summer... I never wear 3/4 pants... despite having been blessed with very very long legs, I find they make you look shorter. Last summer I wore all dresses and went out with jeans and glitzy tops at night when we went to Aigion to visit my in-laws.

This year, I am guessing I will have to break down and get a couple of black dresses and a few long tunics to wear with my leggings and jeans.

All my friends are wearing leggings here as it is heading
into winter, but I can't see myself in them for a summer
in Greece. I did go and buy 3 new tops and a pair
of 3/4 pants and shorts for the beach. I got so upset when
I went shopping and now will wait till I get to 80 kg before
I lose any weight.

When I am in the village I will go swimming every day and
walk to the beach (it is 900 metres from my house). If I can
do that most days, I will be keeping myself busy and fit.

So now I am going to try and lose 5 kg in 6 weeks, so let's
hope I can do this...The only thing stopping me is me!

I'm not going to buy any new clothes until I reach my goal, when I will need a new wardrobe. Until then my reward will be fitting again into old clothes that have been hanging around unworn for years, even decades.
I did treat myself to a few new long tops (not sure what they are called in English, here in Greece they call them blusoforema) designed to go over leggings, because I am now wearing leggings for the first time in my life!

After sticking for a month, I am going to get myself a new brooch- I have a 1920's estate piece in mind (if the price for the thing drops).

I used to love to run... but for me to be able to handle the stress on my joints I have to lose 30 lb... when I lose 30- new running shoes

When I manage 50 lb... my reward is great in and of itself... I can wear my HEELS again!

I haven't gotten far enough to know what I will reward myself with when I reach my final goal!

my reward is a little different... I decided that when I reach my goal weight, I am finally going to have my varicose/spider veins done. I have had them since I was in my late 20's and they make me really self conscious. Now that it only involves saline injections, it's not as invasive as the old vein stripping method, and not quite as expensive...

Fall seven times, stand up eight.

These are common rewards I have noticed while browsing through Spark but what have you decided to reward yourself with? Or have you decided on a reward?

Maybe that long awaited trip to the Greek Isles...? :D
