Just curious what rewards people use and after how many lbs lost people reward themselves with weight loss?

My mom said she's getting rid of her big clothes as she loses the weight, because she's not going back (she's struggled for years)

Does anyone set aside money as they lose weight for a big spree or large purchase? I was thinking of doing this.

Just curious to hear others' motivators Smile

I'm thinking about either assigning a certain amount of money for every pound I lose and get something nice (new guitar, of course) after I hit my goal, OR figure out how much money I used to spend on beer and save that since I'm not buying it anymore!
I eat, therefore I am.

I agree with your mom who is giving away her "big clothes". I would buy a new article of clothing when you hit a milestone, especially if it is essential to your wardrobe such as work clothes.

I found spa things were fun treats for me. historically I would celebrate special occasions with a fancy meal... this is a bad plan. I recommend manicure/pedicure, massages, facials... something you would not do for yourself normally and treat yourself!
