Weight loss rewards
I have been thinking about my different mini weight goals and the rewards I would like for them. You see, I have usually celebrated with food, either a nice dinner out or cooking our favourite meal and dessert at home. This is not good and a cycle I would like to break. Why does it always have to be about food?
Some of the things I would LOVE to do cost so much money, but I am saving for them. As such, I am thinking for each weight goal I achieve I will have my cheap reward and expensive reward and depending on how much I have saved will determine which I get. Both are something I would like, so they will be motivating for me.
Here’s my mini weight goals and rewards
78.5 kg – The Glass Works (it’s free)
73.5kg – 1 hour of child free sewing time OR Sydney Bridge Climb
68.5kg – 1 hour pamper time at home OR Surfing lessons
63.5kg – Free make-over at a make-up counter in Myer/DJ’s OR Day spa day
60kg – 1 item of clothing, no OR on this one!
Once I have maintained my desired weight for 3 months, I will get a classic wardrobe that I have been wanting for AGES!
The reason I don’t have an expensive one for 78.5kg is because I got there in the last few months then packed weight back on, actually I got to 77kg! Then within a few weeks I was back at 84kg. How did I let that happen? As such I chose the Glass works which is on my 101 list and I have been wanting to go for ages. I don’t have far to go, provided I keep the detox weight loss off (I will be revealing that on Wed!)
And yeah, I changed my weight loss goal to 60kg. My old aim was 65kg, but I really want to be 60kg. It is well within my BMI. That said it will depend on how I look. I looked really good at 65kg before and was pretty happy with that. I don’t want to get to 60kg and it look too skinny on me. If I look too skinny I will put some weight back on.
For those who don’t use kg to measure weight, my start weight in pounds was 184.08 pounds and my goal weight is 132 pounds. (It sounds much nicer in kilos I think! Lol)
Do you have mini rewards for yourself? I mean the weight loss is a reward of itself, but do you have little things to motivate you to reach it?
