    So, Hubby and I started SW last Thursday night. Going well so far - he lost 4.5lbs in the first week, & I lost 6lbs!! Anyway, he gave me a Trollbead bracelet with two beads on it, with the promise of a new bead for every half stone I lose! I'm so happy - only 1lb to go until I get my next bead - have my eye on one called Fur Animal. I feel it was really thoughtful of him, and a great visual cue to keep going - have a LOT of weight to lose. What do the rest of you do to keep going? Xo

    I want a pandora bracelet, and then buy a bead of the same colour as my award every time I get one. Just need to pursue oh to get me the bracelet and the beads to catch up. Iv been trying since I started and no such luck so far!! X

    My bf promised me a pair of shoes for every stone! I lost a stone then gained the next week so he's yet to buy them but they will be mine. Currently in negotiation that instead of a pair per stone, he should treat me to some Manolo's or some Louboutins when I get to target. Strangely enough, he's not keen!! ;)

    I have visuals all around...

    A fancy garlic press for my 1/2 stone (last of the big spenders!!!)
    Bought a slow cooker for my 2 1/2 & 3 stone
    Bought a new coat for my 3 1/2 & 4 stone (that's now too big!!!)
    A new CD for my 6 stone
    Am thinking concert tickets for my 6 1/2 & 7 stone (as hopefully I'll be there by April)

    I've also bought a couple of tops, some cookbooks, a theatre ticket and a few other things.

    With quite a bit to lose, I've decided to wait until I get to target, then I'm treating myself!!! (I've been saving up as I go, so I can treat myself to some Rigby and Peller underwear (with a trip to London thrown in!!) instead of the 'over-the-shoulder-boulder-holders' and then a necklace with a blue star on it (the same colour as the target badge)) - Because I'm worth it!!! :D :D :D

    I forgot to reward myself apart from having fish pedicures!

    When I reach target I want to have some photos done.

    I'm at a loss for some inexpensive ways to reward myself! Hubby is more skint than me now he's bought a new car!

    I'm hoping to get photos done too :) I'm hoping to reach target by my birthday (march 6th) and have it as a sort of joint thing .

    My hubby bought me a pandora bracelet and I've got 1 charm for each award. And I wear it in WI day!!! I did weigh it once as it's obviously getting heavier :)

    Clothes are the main one though. I love getting clothes in a size I haven't been for years!!!!! :)

    I love buying clothes now, as a tall and big person it was a nightmare, if I did find something that fitted then I would not always like it or had to pay a lot for something I didn't like. Now I have more choices at a reasonable price, and can buy what I actually want to wear, thank you SW I love you x

    I've decided to dye my hair, red from blond, and treat myself to a brand new Topshop dress :) Will feel like a whole new skinny me :)

    Its a very motivating incentive to say 'no' to cake xx

    I love this! I did this when I was on WW and lost 4 stones. I also have beads I was given for other achievements (such as qualifying and so on) I do need another visual cue I think.... glad I have read this :)
