What incentives are you giving yourself?

Are you treating yourself to anything nice when you lose a certain amount of weight? New, smaller clothes is an obvious one I know, but what about other things? I am buying myself beads to go on my trollbead bracelet. Its kind of like a charm bracelet, but instead of charms you put more beads on a plain chain. Mine is on my blog if you want to look.
The beads cost between £14 and a fair old bit.... (gold ones) but there are some lovely beads to choose from. They all have meanings too!

Hi Anna

I think the bracelet is a lovely idea. As it is a permanent reminder of the journey. I took a look at your picture and it is lovely. I love bracelets and am a 'turquoise' girl so a really good choice.

If I were to get one I would need to buy a bead for each period I had mantained my lose. but actually that wouldn't be a bad idea at all. Maybe I could buy the bracelet on the anniversary of starting CD or something like that.

Hope you enjoy it for many years to come and it acts as a good motivator for you.:)

Have you seen the doc yet about your leg?

I'm getting my haircut soon! I was waiting to goal, but thought I needed something to look forward to, its another 3-4 weeks, so I should have less than a stone to go by then.

I did have £500 put by for new clothes but I've had to use it for my husbands unexpected tax bill (don't ask!) what I will do now is buy some stuff from catalogues and ebay to keep me going until we can afford for me to spend a lot again.

My hubby and me were going to go away for a weekend to celebrate out wedding anniversary (10th!) but due to some family difficulties my Mum can't come and stay with our 2 year old at the moment, so that is put on hold till later in the year now too.

sigh... so much for incentives lol!

My incentive is my friend is giving me a trip to Dubai when I hit 15.5stones..... he's not talking to me at the moment so I'm not sure it's gonna happen just now :cry:

oooh that corset looks luverly!

unfortunately I don't think I will be able to wear things like that, my arms have always been big and lumpy (must start and use my strap thingy) and my breasts aren't up to much... small and droopy now I've lost most of my weight lmao! I think I'll always need a bra...

Having just put myself down, I should add in I am much happier with the way I look now than I used to be! saggy tum and all...(whole other subject!)

Incentives .. well, my DH is giving me 10 euro per pound I lose (at the end) so I will go on an almighty shopping spree!! Also have been treating myself to smaller clothes (expensive ones) as I go along .. ones that if they are a little big will still look good!! Have also bought perfume, massages, facials, make-up and treatments!! So it's all good for me!!

loved the trollbead idea. so much so i have ordered one and will get a new charm after each stone. have just lost my first stone (midweek peeking at the scales :eek: ) so i am gonna order a suitcase one...to mark the start of my journey :)

i am also whisking sonkie away on one of those retreat/spa kinda weekends when we get to goal. compliments of hubby :D

ooo and the other thing is...for xmas and my birthday, i asked people to get me clothes shop vouchers so that i can go on a spree when im at goal. so far i have just under £200 in vouchers for "next" and "marks and sparks". so now we have valentines...easter...wedding anniversary...umm can anyone think of another occasion i can squeeze clothes money out of anyone before the end of the summer??

i'll definately be buying myself some corsets. ooo and skinny jeans ..havent owned jeans for years.

damn i could go on all day :eek:

I am thinking I need another bead for my bracelet... I am 2.7 lb away from 2 stone lost, but it is Valentine's Day this week and I don't have anyone to buy me a gift.... plus I think I will let my girls choose me some beads and put them away for Mother's Day.

About Trollbeads sell trollbeads in the UK, they look fabulous! I would order one and get a bead for every stone but I just got a tattoo done today, which has used up my frivolity allowance!

I did get the frog tattoo for a reason though. When I am down to my target weight I'll have a whole rainforest scene tattooed there. The frog represents the start of my journey, and if I don't complete LL he'll be a reminder of what I need to do.
