Do you give yourself some kind of incentive when you reach a goal? Such as "If I workout 4-5 times this week, I am going to go out and watch that movie I have been wanting to see on saturday" or "When I lose 20 lbs I can get that new outfit I've been eyeing".
Ok maybe not that ^^^... I do have one incentive only... When I start looking the way I'd like my incentive or maybe it's more of a goal, but I'll be ready to go shopping and purchase my first bikini! Lol
Yes, I love rewards or incentives....they can be very motivating. When I first started my journey....my reward for losing 10 pounds was a manicure (it was my first one ever), i definitely enjoyed being pampered! Next 5 pounds was a pedicure. My ultimate reward when I lose 40 pounds or fit nicely in a size 8....pay to have someone houseclean my house....top to bottom!!
Eh, not really. I've more bought new stuff as I've needed to. That's pretty good incentive right there! Plus, what I want changes. Now it's running or triathlon gear, as opposed to the things I'd have wanted when I first started, like a pedicure (I won't let someone shave off these running calluses now!) or a movie. I celebrated the 100 lb mark with a bucket-list run. Definitely NOT what I would have selected when I started! LOL
