Rewarding myself to lose weight


Weight loss is a really big deal to me at the moment, I know there are lots of people out there that will say you shouldn’t diet, you should be happy in your own skin, but I don’t find the word ‘diet’ offensive, in fact the dictionary definition of the word diet is ‘the food eaten by a particular group or person’ it doesn’t even mention weight loss, but the fact of the matter is that I do need to lose weight so it that means that I have to make some changes to what I eat (ie my current diet) so be it.


During my time as a Leader for Weight Watchers I often heard people talking about rewarding themselves for their weight loss, I have to be honest it’s not something I had ever considered as I had always been fortunate enough to be able to buy what I wanted when I wanted and patience  has never been one of my best qualities, but times change, I have given up my job and while I am still able to make those purchases, I am now thinking twice about them, so suddenly rewarding myself for my weight loss seems appealing, plus in the past I have often made food a reward and that is a habit I want to stop

So I have decided I will reward myself for every 7lbs I lose & when I reach 5, 10, 15, 20 & 25% weight loss etc, these may change but at the moment here are what I think my rewards may look like


7lbs – new gym top – loving my new top ‘Don’t wait for it – Work for it’ top that I treated myself to for reaching my 7lbs


5% (9lbs) – new Fitbit charge 2

14lbs – new colouring pencils

10% (18lbs) – perfume


21lbs – new colouring pens

15% (27lbs) – new gym leggings

28lbs – new gym top

35lbs – new Fitbit Strap

20% (36lbs) new make up

42lbs – new trainers


25% (45lbs) – tikiboo gym capri’s

49lbs – new haircut/colour

50lbs – new clothes

Do you reward yourself for reaching your goals, what kind of rewards would motivate you?
