Thanks for the good ideas.
most of these are pretty good suggestions
Love them all. Its time to reward myself more..
When I lose some more weight, my reward will definitely be a hot stone massage!
I decided when I drop a size, I'll order a new dress to celebrate.
People mentioned that some of these rewards are not really rewards. My sister mentioned she would go to the manicurist no matter what because she needed it, like brushing your teeth or hair. To me, it would be a reward, because I never or rarely ever do it. It would be a treat for me. I think the reward system should be something out of the ordinary for each individual and the list is just a wonderful example of what might be a reward for you. People have to make it their own. Thank you for the examples.
Maybe I'm to narrow in what should be considered a reward but most of these came off as things I just do not a reward. I liked the get a tattoo one and a few others but most didn't sound like something that would motivate me. As my grandma used to say its the differences in us all that makes the world an interesting place.
love these ideas!
