    do you have motivation to keep at it?


    I get £1 for every 1olb lost from my hubby (got taught that in SW, ended up with same tenner for months :p)

    And now he's said he'll get me an iPhone if I loose 3 1/2 stone (he asked me for a figure, he hasn't pushed the amount on me) so now I'm even more up for it!

    My hubby gives me £1 for every 1lb I lose too - someone on here gave me the tip!
    I'm going to buy myself someting nice with it WHEN I reach goal.

    Hi folks, I'm just crashing the cd board from the W8 board :D

    My OH and I have worked out a reward for each stone I loose! hehe

    1 stone, a pair of earings
    2 stone, a bracelet
    3 stone, a necklace
    4 stone, a haircut (yay)
    5 stone, a manicure
    6 stone, a bottle of Miss Dior cherie!

    I know it seems like a lot, but the jewellry won't be from Tiffanys or anything lol, probably Asda hehe.. but it'll be something to remind myself that I lost the weight etc

    ive got an obsession with flowers at the moment.
    so every lb I lose, i've been spending the equal amounts on flowers each week.

    also, im going to reading, and want to lose weight for that
    im going to spain in september
    and we're going to try for another baby at the end of the year.

    all fab reasons to shift some pounds

    my reward last time I did CD was to get myself a big and very stunning phoenix tattoo on my stomach on the basis that I could then show it off in the summer without being embarrassed.

    This time round its a trip to Hawaii next year keeping me motivated and I may allow myself to upgrade my camera if I can get to my goal weight. My immediate plan is to talk to a friend of mine who's a professional fine art photographer and ask if she will do a photoshoot for me as I've never had a photo of me I've liked and I'm always self-conscious in pictures so when I get to the weight I want to be I will get some really nice pictures done as a motivator to keep up the good work.

    its a psychological thing as much as a reward - I need to learn to see myself realistically and be happy with my body image so its a way of helping me do that. Being a photographer I know so well will make me relaxed as well so I'm hoping I won't be so self-conscious and it'll give me a huge confidence boost and get my head to actually see the weight loss. Glad you like it :D

    Oooh I love this thread!!

    I've got some motivational things planned for my weight loss mini goals too!! I've planned two things for each milestone - a "beauty" thing and an exercise thing. These are from NOW's weight (16.4)

    -Lose 3 stone: new nail extensions & start using the Power Plate - will be 13.4

    -Lose 5 stone: new hair (cut and dye!) & start exercise classes - will be 11.4

    -Lose 6 stone: £300 for new clothes and shoes (£50 per stone lost) & start playing netball - will be 10.4

    -Lose 7 stone: A pamper day with new nails, hair cut, facial, spray tan, false eye lashes and a big night out! Will be at 9.4

    -Lose 8 stone: A new wardrobe (£600 - shoes, underwear, clothes - the lot because this will be goal weight! £600 because I would've lost 10 stone in total, £50 per stone and £200 for all the hard work!! lol!) - exercise wise, my treat will be to re-train as a personal trainer as I hope to be loving exercise so much by then!!

    I love treats for losing weight that aren't food related!! lol!
