    Style on obese clothes is limited to witty sayings about being fat, seasons greetings, and solid colors. There is quite a limit to it.

    I bought myself a 24KG kettlebell because that is how much weight I lost.

    I use it to swing around of course but I pick it up every now and then just to remind me how much weight I used to carry around.

    Well done
    2010 - 5,11 and 101KG

    That is a wonderful idea! I have a 15 pound kettlebell myself, and that is actually how much weight I lost since March. I never thought about it that way before. That thing is heavy!

    I buy a piece of clothing (or 6) that fit. Incentive not to slide back.

    But please temper that with the fact that I am a big time fashion junkie and spent 30 years of my life wearing the clothes of which Euphoric speaks. So when I hit size 12, I went a little nuts.

    But yeah, a non-food treat is great. BTW, I used to celebrate with food. Now I just don't because I don't have any foods I miss.

    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

    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!
