Just wondering if you treat yourself for losing weight? My problem is I look after everyone else (DH & kids) but not myself so I thought maybe I should treat myself or do something just for me as a reward for losing weight.

I'll have to buy new clothes as I go down through the sizes anyway but I was thinking of other things like a new hairstyle, handbag etc. What d'ya think?

The ultimate treat will be to actually look at myself naked in the shower and say 'you are finally back to being sexy!' Along the way I am just trying to stop rewarding myself with food... it always turns out bad. Saying that I now have things in my wardrobe that I would have never dreamed of having 3 months ago. Does anyone else struggle with constantly wanting to eat 'bad' food? alcohol will never be a problem - but the rewarding myself with food is.
(sorry you said rewarding yourself not with food.. i mentioned it a few times)

A week and a half ago I treated myself to a detox aqua session at the beauticians, with my feet in water, dragging out all the impurities and toxins from my body, and to aid my slimming by balancing the ions in my body...

very soothing but don't think it has impacted my weightloss in the slightest lol just lost £24 not lb's (it was a treat from my mum!!)

Thats not bad hun, I just hate being this size so cant be bothered with clothes and make up yet when I'm slim or slimmer I'm always buying stuff.

Think I will treat myself every stone I lose, and a mini treat on the half a stone. I'm starting a job soon running the after school club so will be busier and earning more too.

Flip, Do you not have a local college nearby, my friend is studying to be a beautician, and they perform treatments at really reasonable prices, facials and indian head massages etc, I always wanted an indian head massage but I'm afraid I might nod off whilst having it done and wake up to be told I was snoring, and a dribble from my mouth...

It's the non food treats that have kept me going some days!

With me it's piercings and shoes. I'm already thinking about my next rewards -

I think I shall reward myself again soon - probably when I get down to 13 stone 9 (then I would have lost 4 1/2 stone in total) - another 11 1/2 lb to go!
