    I will do something I am sure, but not sure what.

    I have to buy clothes once in awhile, not so much as a reward but a necessity cuz nothing fits, which is a reward But I am not sure how I will know when I get there because I don't have a goal weight. It is more of a look or body composition I am going for, although I do have a number in mind that I am sort of shooting for. I kind of have two in mind. Just have to see what I look like when I get there.

    But as far as rewards..... hmmmm I always thought a new bikini. However I reckon I will be strutting my stuff in one before I am officially at goal though ha

      Well done
      Great idea.... You know, I have not picked up my 120 lbs, need to do that.....

          Yal I think those are awesome ideas. I have to haul around 50lb grain bags now and then, and I hadnt realized until reading this, this morning, that I was carrying around that much extra weight. I have lost one, and need to lose another grain bag and I cannot imagine having to just carry that around all day. Not just from point A to point B, but all.day.long.

          Thanks for those visuals

          WTG on everyone's successes!!

            Clothes. Specifically denim skirts. I love them. Leather jackets. Sweep the good second hand store for deals because the only thing I like better than being thin is a great deal on quality clothes.

            And this time, I made a good after plan. The OP is smart to ask, "What next?" I never did before this time and I think it's what contributed to my up and down weight all these years. Congrats on attaining your goal!

              I think this was the one here.
              this is what I do. and always shed a tear of happiness when I can fit into the clothes. Today I fit into a size 4 shirt and a week ago I was able to get to a size 6 pants and have been rocking all my new size 6 pant suits. I started primal on a size 10 pant size so yes, it might be "just a number" but I be damned if I don't celebrate it! . The day I comfitably fit into a size 2 top and a size 4 pants....umma buy all yall some cyber coffee! lol

                I said, hey just made 173...and then had sex with my wife.
                So, pretty much a normal day.

                  Perfectly okay to celebrate, as long as the festivities don't include downing a pizza. I've been really good about staying close to my chosen path for the last 10 months, and I reward myself for doing so, just not with food. treatment for male impotence

                    Aside from buying news clothes, I buy things that will continue to help me support my paleo lifestyle -- a subscription to Paleo Magazine, a new kitchen tool (glass containers, stainless steel pot or pan, kitchen sheers), a new cookbook, etc. Or, I treat myself to a pedicure, massage or a new flavor of tea.

                      It will take me a lot longer than 3 or 4 months to reach my goal, so I have time to think about it. I have lost 25 lbs so far, but have many more to go! I think I will go out and treat myself to a cute outfit, new hair style, or something like that. So far, losing the weight and feeling better has been enough in itself... no official celebration required.

                        My first goal was to get back into 38 pants, which I am in. As my 40 pants started becoming loose, I reevaluated my goal to be strength related (unassiated pullup). To celebrate, I cooked a nice think porterhouse, finished it with Kerrygold and bought a nice, lightly used Mystery Ranch Crew Cab with the correct size belt and harness on it.

                            By working twice as hard to keep it from slipping away. The hard reality for me is that the achievements do not stick unless I fight tooth and nail and claw back at every ounce of fat climbing back on. It's like being a fly caught in a spider web. Fat always sticks to me, I am never free of its reach.

                              I didn't really have a goal. I was pretty sure it wouldn't work for me. But it did. I don't know if I've reached my goal because I'm not sure what my goal should be. I mean, I look pretty decent. My clothing size is pretty small. I'm healthy, I'm active. I would like to be smaller, for sure, so I guess I haven't reached a weight I'm 100% satisfied with, but on some level I am satisfied. About the only real goal I can name is that I would like to run this 50 mile ultramarathon we have locally, maybe next year, if I can get in. To be able to run that would be the ultimate prize to me. Otherwise, I celebrate usually by buying a few new clothes.

                                I bought myself a stylish watch. I look at it several times every day and it reminds me of how far I have come and keeps me honest when I have the urge to sit on my ass, not work out or eat something I should not.
