Do you have an end goal reward that you're working towards?
 
The reward thread in the main topic thread got me thinking about a 'reward' that I want when I hit my goal weight. I've been wanting a retro/pin up swim suit for ages, but they're pricey (around $100). I've decided that when I hit my goal weight I'm going to treat myself to one or two of them. I've been browsing some sites and found two I love and I've bookmarked them for a few months from now :) I'd post links but I don't know if we're allowed to :confused:

Do you have a special reward in mind when you hit your goal weight? Could be something small or big-just whatever you want to treat yourself to when you hit goal :)

I responded on the main lobby thread too. I bought my scooter, not as a reward, but in hind-sight it sort of was. I got it right around the 100 pound mark, and I would NEVER have bought one when I was heavier.

That being said, I crashed on it yesterday and am feeling every one of my 40 years today. :hyst:

Oh no, hope you're ok!

Poor Dawn! Do you have bumps and bruises?:cry:

KeirasMom 12-17-2012 11:14 AM

Skinned knee, every muscle on my right side hurts, and my ego is battered. No biggie. :laugh:

Yam-Yam 12-17-2012 11:16 AM

Every time I went down a size I splurged and bought cute clothes including jeans, dress pants, tops, sweaters, very lacy, pretty bras and silky undies.

I'm not even sure what my end goal will be. But, WHEN (I was gonna write "if":dunno:) I reach goal, my reward will be a shopping trip for clothes and probably another pair of cute shoes.

Yam-Yam 12-17-2012 11:19 AM

Sara: I would love to see a picture of the bathing suits you are looking at! I love the retro look. Can you figure out how to put a picture of it in a post here? I somehow figured out how to do that a couple of times.

Now I forget! Someone explained it to me. If I remember, I'll tell you and you can post a picture.

And how's the scooter?

jenericstewart 12-17-2012 11:21 AM

I have stair step goals, so as not to overwhelm myself. For my first, I'm going to get a good scale that'll show my true weight. I'm not looking forward to finding out just how inaccurate my scale is, which will probably put me over the 200 pound mark again, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I can't keep my head in the sand forever. :laugh:

Bruised egos hurt the most!:hyst:

No specific goal really. My DH had said last year that when I reach my goal, he would pay for me to have a tummy tuck. But, I feel I'm too old for that now. When I was in 30's or 40's maybe. But, I'll be 64 in a few months. So, I will think of something else. I never thought about it!

Sara: I was just practicing and here is a picture of a swimsuit from Amazon.

What you do is find the picture of your swimsuit. Then, I like to halfway minimize the page I'm on (top right of page). That makes it easy. I put the cursor on the picture and drag and click it onto my desk top.

Then use the little paper clip above your post to upload it here.

Yes bathing suit and vacation would definitely be my rewards! Although I have been saying this for years !!! I know that I will reach my goal by the end of next year with JUDDD!

I'll try and get pictures loaded-I'm up to three suits I :love: :laugh:

Lumina 12-17-2012 11:51 AM

A brand new pair of expensive designer jeans. That is my 'final' reward. I always buy jeans pretty cheap (or thrift the more expensive brands) I figure it's two fold, a reward and a reminder to never grow out of them! Don't want to spend $200+ on jeans I can never wear again! Lol

Kissa 12-17-2012 11:52 AM

Well that didn't work, tying again.

Figured it out :D The images are small-but both the one piece suits have anchors on them, which is perfect since we have a sailboat :) And the black polka dot suit is actually a two piece-the bottom is a separate piece-love that! I'm hoping to get two of them, just need to decide which two :)

Ooooh that worked! Well I would like another meal at this restaurant. The trouble is I have reached goal....

SlimNana 12-17-2012 12:02 PM

My reward at goal weight will be fitting back into my size 6 jeans. I haven't been able to squeeze my butt into them for the past 4 years. I sure hope boot cut jeans are still in style next spring! ;)

Those are really cute!

I have a really beautiful wardrobe of clothing, all in a size 20. My reward, when I get to a size 10, is to have them all tailored to fit me. I'm just about a 14 now, so still have a ways to go, but I can't wait :)

A little battered, a couple of scrapes but no dents. My helmet also has a gouge in it, so I'm glad I was wearing it! I told DH the scooter has now been properly broken in.

I love the black and white suit. :love:

Kissa 12-17-2012 12:48 PM

Dawn, I am so sorry you had a spill, sounds quite nasty, please take care of yourself. Helmets are required by law in the UK. Hope you feel better soon.

I love the black and white suit. :love:

I'm pretty sure that's a definite buy :) I love that it's actually a two piece, even though it looks like a one piece-makes going to the bathroom a lot easier :hyst:

Eieio 12-17-2012 01:13 PM

Fun u asked.
I have a black leather short skirt that I was married in 11 years ago.
I want that to fit me perfect again.
I tried it on the other day, well I tried to put it on anyway. Ho humm.
Fit fine around my waist but my huge butt was in the way.
Love the pic of the pokie dot suite. Very sweet!
Dawn we need to get a bubble for you. Say size medium for your scooter to fit inside with you. Yikes girl!

LuckyLou 12-17-2012 01:30 PM

Ooh, great thread :)
Like Dawn, my end goal might also get me injured (hugs, Dawn, to body & ego). I'd love love love to surf but am way too self-conscious at my current weight. So my plan is to be able to take surf lessons w my eldest... I want to be that kind of mam :) Don't have a sporty bone in my body but I love the water!

That would be so cool to do something like that with your child-great idea!

I will probably bite the bullet (at last) and get a tattoo. DD has been urging me to get one for years, but I see no sense in wasting perfectly good ink as I am now...and then have it become misshapen and droopy later when I've deflated. :D

Mine all still look good even with 100 pounds gone. :D I was worried about that too, as I've gotten tattoos at several different weights, but no worries. Of course I don't have any on the girls or my belly where most of the droop has occurred! :o
