I do!! For each goal I make, I'll buy myself some little trinket, like a zipper pull to put on my hiking pack. The trinket reminds me of the journey and what I had accomplished, it makes me feel good. emoticon

Wish we lived closer together, Becky, because movies would be a great treat for me, too!

I reward my self with new clothes. I had nothing after losing my 30 lb.s last year. I don't allow myself to buy anything that is not on sale.

This was why I picked my reward of going to a movie. Since I've retired there really isn't anything that I REALLY need, except maybe $$. LOL!! There are those things that I have to have so I can't use them as a reward. Like a haircut, a pedicure (for callous removal), new tennies when my old ones wear out, new workout clothes when I get smaller. So I just thought what is it that I really liked doing that I don't do anymore. DH meets his old cronies on Tuesday for lunch and that would be a perfect time for me to sneak off to the movies alone as a reward.

Yes, I have smiled today walking on the beach. I am feeling better about myself and what reward I like best is a new outfit! emoticon

My reaction was much like yours, Becky. When I first started my Spark journey I just couldn't come up with any rewards for myself. As I've gotten older and since I've retired, there are fewer "things" that matter to me. But when I do reach a goal, or lose another 5 pounds, it's how I FEEL that matters. The smile I give myself is my reward.

If I had the money, I would treat myself to a movie too! Afternoon matinees should be cheaper. I would love to buy some new clothes too, but don't want to get something that will be too big after losing more weight. Instead I check my closet to see what I have that hasn't been worn in a long time.

Of course, I may reward myself with something that I shouldn't have, like chocolate, but all in moderation!!

I used inexpensive costume jewellery as a reward for every 3 pounds lost but I've been maintaining for 3 years now and the same reward applies to progress in fitness.
YOU SHOULD SEE THE COLLECTION LOL

And I see nothing wrong in splurging on a night out at the local theatre with a friend or an occasional trip into the West End for a show,,,,,,,,,,because I'm worth it.

Enjoy your movie trip Becky...oh! and take a healthy snack- don't ruin all your good work on candy or pop corn emoticon

"How do you reward yourself?" This question was asked on the Community Board. I answered the question that I don't reward myself.

Since then I've been thinking about that answer. "Why don't I reward myself?" "If I did reward myself, what reward would I give myself?" "What do I love to do that I don't do anymore?"

The answer is -- MOVIES! I love going to the MOVIES!
emoticon
DH hates going to the movie theater because it's hard for him to hear... so we just don't go. But I think that would be a perfect reward for me.

When I lose 10 pounds I will treat myself to the an afternoon matinee! YEP... GOING TO THE MOVIES! Only 3 more pounds to go and I'm going to take myself to the movies!

Do you reward yourself for your accomplishments? If so, what do you do?
