I've built in rewards when I hit particular milestones. I stopped drinking alcohol nearly 2 years ago and did something similar, and I found it a really useful tool.

I have a list of non-food treats, as traditionally a treat would be a bottle of red, or chocolate, or a pizza delivery.

As my waist is now under 40", I bought myself some flowers :-D

  • Beautiful flowers diamondblock and well done on the waist decrease 😊 What a great idea too, we all like rewards

  • Lovely x and well done

  • I love the bright colours especially now the days are shorter and the weather has been dull . Very well deserved.

    I bought myself silver trainers when I lost 10 kg

    I' vet got some gold ones but I won't allow myself to wear them until I reach goal which is now only 4 kg away

    Best wishes

  • Good idea 😊 love it! We all need treats to keeps us motivated at times!

  • The flowers are beautiful. I haven't done this so far but will have a think 🤔

  • Love your flowers, that's not something I had thought of! Will have to find a vase first though as I don't actually have one! :)

    Congratulations on getting your waist under 40".

  • Yes I buy myself a treat too, each time I shed 7lbs I treat myself. Love the flowers.

  • Beautiful!! Well deserved.
