I've been pondering how to reward myself for my weight loss because I think I'm doing a good job and I deserve a reward. I started small thinking a choccy bar a week but then I read on a low carb forum that rewarding yourself with food is not a good idea as it gets you back into bad habits, and that makes alot of sense to me.

So now I am thinking a bit beyond the once a week thing. I'm thinking maybe rewards for every 2 or 5kg, problem is I'm not sure what I can reward myself with for those smaller losses, perhaps a season of one of my favourite shows on DVD?

For my goal weight reward I had made the suggestion to my Hubby of a tattoo. I've wanted a tattoo for about 12 years now but never been able to settle on a design, now however I think I know what I want. I love cats, cats of all types, big, small, domestic, and wild. I have one cat at home, she is the sweetest, gentlest most wonderful creatures but sadly she is 14 years old and recently I have recently come to the realisation that she isn't going to be around forever. So I decided if I was to get a tattoo it would be a black cat for her.

But, the more I have mulled it over it the more I am beginning to think that a tattoo isn't enough of a reward for such a massive achievement, for such a huge life changing process. I'm thinking maybe the tattoo can be my halfway-there reward. For reaching my goal weight I think I deserve something better than a tattoo.

Here are some of my ideas.

A Louis Vuitton bag.
I really like this one "Manhattan"
but it is major $$$

A Pandora bracelet.
Unfortunately it would need to be gold
as I have a nickel allergy and can't wear
silver. Again, big $$$, but I like that I can
add to it for other milestones in my life.

Laser vision correction.
Big, big $$$, HUGE, but a lifetime
of freedom from glasses.

Convincing Hubby will be the tricky bit, I don't fancy my chances really lol, but I'll keep you posted.

  1. That's one sweet ass handbag-- but I'd go for the laser eye thing! I think the bracelet is too trendy and you'll be over it in a few years. The eyes would be the gift that keeps on giving.
