Thread: Non-food reward

    Default Non-food reward

    It's been three and a half years since I started my WW journey, and I'm pretty much where I want to be. I've been between 175 and 180 for about 16 months now, and I feel great. When started out, they suggested giving yourself non-food rewards for achieving weight loss goals. This didn't really work for me on little things, because being single, I pretty much do whatever I want (except pig out on junk food). So, the reward would have to be something big -- something I wouldn't normally do for myself, as a reward for a big achievement.

    This month I finally decided it was time:

    The fat me would look ridiculous in this, and would have a hard time climbing up out of it. The skinny me thinks it's awesome.

    Funny thing is, while I was at the dealer buying it, I was sitting there for hours. Salesman came by and said he knows I must be hungry, having been there through my lunch break, and sat a tray of giant blueberry muffins in front of me. Twenty minutes later he came back and they were still sitting there in front of me. "Don't like muffins?" he asks. I explained that my car is a reward to myself for losing weight, and he moves them out of sight.

    Non-scale victory -- check!

    Awesome BB!! You SO deserve it! You have been working long and hard and have most definitely earned this reward! I think it's awesome too that you are able to avoid such temptations put right in front of your face (the muffins)! I have to say, your reward looks MUCH more tempting than any plate of food I've ever seen!LOL Congrats to you~fighting the battle and winning. 3 years is awesome!
