Weight loss rewards...recognizing milestones along the way
I believe in rewarding success. As a business coach and former corporate executive, I know the importance of setting goals and acknowledging milestones along the way. So, why not reward myself on my weight-loss journey?
I decided that a “fair” way to recognize my achievement is to treat myself to a small gift when I have lost 20% of my 50 pounds goal (10 pounds) and then to repeat those gifts every 20% until I lose the weight. So, five gifts over 50 weeks…seems like a plan I’ll enjoy.
I’m not talking about BIG ticket items, here. And I am not treating myself to a milk shake, either. But, until I hit the first milestone, I can have some fun thinking about what reward will be my first.
Talk to you soon.
