Reward Yourself For Reaching Weight Loss Goals

Stay motivated in your weight loss efforts by giving yourself small rewards throughout the process. Break your goals down into smaller, more manageable chunks.

Looking at the big picture can often be intimidating. If you have a lot of weight to lose, realistically, it could be a long road ahead until your reach your goal weight. It is important to reward yourself throughout your weight loss journey to stay motivated. First, set up your long-term and short-term goals for your weight loss efforts. These goals should be personal and focus on the things you need the most improvement on.

Long-Term Weight Loss Goals
Long-term weight loss goals are important for the big picture. You should have a vision of your final goals. What is your goal weight or size? What will it feel like when you reach this goal?

Examples of long-term weight loss goal rewards include:
  • A weekend vacation or cruise
  • A new wardrobe in your new, smaller size.
  • Update your look.
  • A large piece of work equipment.

Once you have this image of your end result, break it down into smaller chunks. Goal-orientated rewards work better if they occur more often. Even small rewards can keep you motivated to stay on track.

Short-Term Weight Loss Goals
Short-term weight loss goals can be all the bits and pieces that collectively bring you to your long-term goal. They can be related to weigh loss, food, exercise, water intake and other areas of personal improvement.

I have been doing early morning walks on a regular basis now and during my walks I also do some simple legs and arms exercises. I am having alot of fun as well as working very hard. As a little reward to myself I had a shellack manicure done.  This type of manicure is relatively new and I can have well manicured nails at all times.  Learn more about shellack manicure.
