Reward for Weight Loss

reward1How do you reward yourself when you meet your fitness goals?

This has been a stumbling point for me.  Food has often been my reward.  Good report card?  Banana Split!  Lost weight? Go out to dinner!  Lived another year (i.e. had a birthday)?  Eat cake!  Someone once asked me what my short term and long term weight loss goals were.  She asked me how I was going to reward myself when I met that first short term goal.   Hmmmm….I really struggled coming up with an answer.  That fact spoke volumes to me. I eventually learned that as I lost weight I needed new clothes. That became a great reward for me.

My next reward:

Lately I have become enamored with crazy knee high workout socks like the sock pictured below.. I am in a Facebook group with others who inspire me to continue my weight loss and fitness journey (thank you HIT Crew). Many of the group members post their workout accountability pictures and I enjoy seeing their crazy socks. I decided that when I lose my next five pounds I’m treating myself to my own pair of wild socks. I think they will inspire me and make me smile when I wear them.

  1. Love the wild socks! My daughter has some “toe” socks.. and they are awesome! Love the reward (not food) idea. Although my husband would say that every day is a reward day at my house (we buy lots of grocery items from and I think the UPS guy sees me more than certain family members!). Have a great day!

  2. I’m really impressed along with your writing talents as well as with the format for your blog. Is that this a paid topic or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice high quality writing, it is uncommon to look a nice weblog like this one nowadays..

  3. Creative. My thanks for writing that. I will come to this site to see what’s new and recommend my people about your writing.
