For today's goal work I'm supposed to write about rewards - non-food rewards - that I get for each stage of my journey.
I started to think about those. At some point, I will need new clothes, but I'm more interested in "closet" shopping than going shopping. I don't want to postpone things like reading until I lose weight, because I think that being healthy includes down time. I don't need more things - in fact, I'm trying to divest, rather than accumulate. I'm also trying to give myself new challenges and experiences along the way, so I don't want to wait on those, either.
I guess that I feel that making those milestones are rewards enough. I know that already I'm feeling better fitting more easily in clothes, feeling more energetic (except for the stupid, current cold), etc. Feeling healthier is a reward. Getting more done is a reward. Feeling better about myself is a HUGE reward.
I'm not sure I need more than that.
