    and if so what????

    I allow myself a can of coke zero every other day to keep me going as I was on 2 litres a day so its a huge withdrawl for me!!!

    I am also going to 'allow' myself £50 at the end of each successful month to spend down the salon, kids free for a few hours, bliss!!! Having my nails done or a facial or a massage and when I lose a good wack then a bit of waxing lol

    Yes - but never with food or drink - I've got myself out of the habit of seeing food/drink as a reward now. I use clothes, shoes, perfume (and at one point I got obsessed with moisturisers too!).

    It's going to sound weird, but

    BATHS!

    I am always rushing around and on the go, and have plenty of showers but I have to work at making 'me' time. So while I was on Sole Source, I made a huge effort to have a nice relaxing bath (I reasoned with myself that I had saved time by not having to cook, so I could spend it relaxing in a lovely bath), maybe not every night, but at least once a week, with Radox and dim lights and a good book.

    A bath is such a treat to me!

    I've bought myself a Lovelinks bracelet - lovelink.jpg

    Yes I treated myself to some Lush products online, the sweetie soap selection has been my fave so far!

    Treats you dont need to eat!

    OOh i want a bath now!! In the past i have bought a new lipstick or some fluffy socks. I know it sounds daft but i usually buy stuff for the kids, so to treat myself is great - even if it is with socks!! :D

    I have bought myself something for every stone lost.

    Mostly jewellery.

    My reward for 100lbs lost is a bottle of my favourite perfume -

    I'm going to be rewarding myself every 2 stones I lose. The first one hopefully this week, will be a hair cut, the next one will be to have my nails done. All of them to make myself look and feel better about myself

    I treated myself to a floatation tank session. It was lovely and very relaxing. I have 2 more (it was buy Buy 2 get 1 Free), and plan to use the next one when I have lost 5 stone.

    The other treat I've allowed myself was a pair on Chung Shi shoes. I'm trying to walk more and these, like MBT's, are meant to help tone up your legs and bum while you are doing it.

    When I finally get my BMI down to below 25 (hopefully it will be a while off as I'm starting TTC no. 2 in a few months), I want to stay in a suite at the Disneyland Hotel for the weekend. I've looked at the prices though and it will probably be cheaper to go to Florida!

    Have bought a few bottles of perfume and far too many clothes(although these are necessity, not a treat;)) Will probably have a lovely night away in a posh hotel with my hubby once i get to goal :)
