How do you reward yourself for meeting your fitness goal? :)

Good Morning! :)

Just curious how do you/have you rewarded yourself or motivated yourself to meeting your fitness goals? Mini goals? 'Final' goal? :)

I'm thinking when I meet my first 'mini' goal I'm going to buy myself a new pair of fancy Nikes I've been wanting! :)
Maybe new *cute* workout clothes for meeting more goals along the way.

The final goal should be something awesome though, your new body on a VACATION :bigsmile: (148 more lbs to go! lol)

I think I am going to let myself lose 30lbs before I even let myself even see a piece of my favorite food again: Tiramisu. :blushing:

Too tempting!

How do you reward yourself? :smile:

    Why do you have a final goal?

    Clothes and accessories are my mini goal rewards. Gotta reward yourself along the way as it is something to celebrate!
    When I meet my final goal weight it will be a vacation away on the beach with my husband.
    I will never be done on my quest to be healthy but at least I have milestones I know I want to meet to strive for. And once I hit my goal weight I will set new goals like running a half marathon, learning a new sport, etc.... It never ends but it keeps me motivated!

    Good luck on your path!

    For me I do non-food rewards like getting a new book, outfit, or doing something that I haven't done in a while. When I reached losing 10 pounds I rewarded myself with some new clothes. My next goal will be when I reach 163 pounds and that will be me reaching a 10% loss of my starting weight. I haven't really made any plans yet for when I reach that goal because I have 8 pounds to lose before I'm at that goal.

    Future purchases I have planned for my mini-goals: new walking shoes, exercise equipment, clothes. For major milestones I want to celebrate with a hiking day-trip.

    I usually buy myself new nail polish (shellac's more expensive), or treat myself to something that I normally wouldn't (mani/pedi, eyebrow wax, etc.).

    I haven't been buying myself rewards, just seeing the results are reward enough for me. I haven't needed to buy many new clothes either because I've been shopping from my own closets...clothes I put away a long time ago when I outgrew them. I donated the smallest two sizes (10s and 12s) a couple of years ago thinking i would never get back on them again, so once these 14s are too big too, then I will have to hit the mall. I set a goal to be able to wear a two piece on our next cruise, which is only about another month away. I don't think I'm going to make that goal...that's okay as long as I make my end goal-getting back to a size 10. I'm 5'9.5" and that is a good, healthy size for me...comfortably in the normal range of bmi.

    Workout gear for sure, it has the dual purpose of reward and motivation, it is not a means to an end, but a little encouragement along the way. I would feel guilty not to use the new gear, and I enjoy looking more pulled together.

    My first prize was a tattoo and a party thrown for me by my co workers once I had lost 100lbs :) my next prize was being able to fit into a victoria's secret LOVE PINK sweatshirt

    I don't know what other rewards to set for myself... maybe more on my tattoo once I'm under 200??
  • Awesome responses!

    Yes I definitely agree that meeting your goal, feeling so accomplished and working on the body you've always wanted is definitely the best reward in itself!

    I have a "final" goal as to which weight I want to get to but I do realize that fitness and maintaining is a lifetime journey and more goals and ways to push yourself will keep coming up along the way.

    Eyes on the prize!

    & CONGRATS to everyone that has lost all this weight!! So inspiring!

    To happy health! :)

    My new goals since I hit maintenance last year are all exercise related. For example, once I hit 10,000 steps a day every day for a month, I get to join a barre class in my neighborhood..i have been doing barre3 at home via internet videos, but need to be able to last an hour to join a class and get a lot out of it.

    Once I stick with the class for a month, then I am going to take the adult ballet class with the Houston Ballet.

    The worst words uttered by anyone trying to lose weight are:

    I worked out hard, I deserve this (food item).


    I have to buy new clothes all the timel I'm in between the start and end goal (40 lbs down, 30 to go) and thrift stores are my friends for it.

    New clothes are the natural consequence of the old ones getting too big.:wink: They make a wonderful incentive and a satisfying reward.:bigsmile: Enjoy your success. (I just spent a goodly amount on lovely new underwear as DH looked on with a happy expression. Who would have ever guessed it would be a treat for both of us?:smokin: )

    I set goals in 25 pound increments. I recently lost the first 25 pounds so to celebrate I bought myself a pair of cute, pink Nike flip flops. I agree hard work and sense of accomplishment is reward enough but it helps to celebrate weight loss. I refuse to use food as a reward or to celebrate when reaching goals. I haven't decided yet how I will celebrate when I reach the next 25 pound goal (50 pd loss then). How do you celebrate when you reach mini goals? Nothing wrong with rewarding yourself for working hard. I think when I hit my goal weight I will celebrate with a complete makeover. :)

    To date, I've not rewarded myself but when I hit 100 pounds lost, I am going to have the Container Store organize my closet :-)
    Not sure what I will do for myself when I hit my goal weight (117 lbs lost) ?! A piece of jewelry perhaps - something that I will always have!

    Clothes shopping!
    It's my birthday coming up and my mum's just ordered a few clothes I picked out online as many of my favourite dresses don't fit me anymore - sad times but a perfect excuse to go shopping :tongue:

    Now that I'm in the 140s, I'm getting my hair coloured this week (making an appointment) and when I reach 140lbs (and stay there for a while) I'm getting my 3rd tattoo - so excited :happy:

    when I hit my goal, I'll be rewarded by being healthy and not disgusted when I look at myself.
