View Full Version : Incentive...
I have been rubbish for the past two months. I have lost 22llbs since Jan and for the past two months have fluctuated losing 1lb putting it back on.
I have decided to give it a rest until next week (having a girlie weekend so won't be able to count my points).
From Monday I am going to start again, full on.
I have decided that for every 1lb I lose I will put £10 away. Once I have lost 7lbs I will have some money to treat myself to something nice!
What do you do?
If I have been good for a whole week I will buy myself a nice lipstick, a book or top ect..I f I am bad, I tell myself the money has gone on :choc: and will buy nofink!
I love that idea Supersonic , because after loosing all the weight you will need loads of fab new clothes ( smaller)
. I think I will try something similar after I give birth :grin: OH has already said I can have some of the savings to buy a new wardrobe of clothes when I get back to normal .
Thats a good thing to do!!!
I dont have any incentives, i cant stick to being good for long
I've had incentives for certain amounts of weight loss. For example, when I reached my first 10% goal I treated myself to a skirt that I'd been eyeing up for weeks. When I hit the same weight that I was when I got pregnant (a couple of weeks ago) I got my hair chopped and coloured (new look me!! :grin: ).
When I reach my next 10% goal I am intending to have a make up lesson, something I've wanted to do for ages and it will help with my new image! :wink:
And finally, when I reach my final target weight, I'm going to have a tattoo done! :clap:
I've found that having something to aim for has really helped :smile:
Lillybet, when I reach my goal, I want to get a bellybutton ring. Was thinking about a tattoo too!!
I buy clothes as reward. Initally, I thought I'd take my clothes in and wear some of the ones that haven't fitted me for a while, but it was boring so I donated them to charity instead and I buy new ones. Also, if I see a real bargin, end of season things that are recued by up to 90%, I will buy it one size smaller. Then as I fit into my clothes, when they start becoming big I have to donate them again. I've no time for ebay ect. I'm not keeping anything that's too big because I never want to have the "fat option/put on a bit of weight" in my wardrobe again!
My incentive now to lose the last of the weight i need to 8-10lbs is because end of October we are going clothes shopping and going to buy literally a whole new wardrobe, im fed up of the clothes i have and had had since last year, so there being bined.
I want to lose the last of the weight so i can get a decent pair of jeans that fit me instead of them beijg to saggey round the ass or the legs, im also going to soend quite a bit on 2 pairs of jeans instead of buying the normal £25/30 ones which just dont sit right!
I want to lose these lbs as then i wont have to worry about thinking well in a few months i might lose x amount so is it worth buying them as once i have lost the lbs i want il be happy
I have just over 6 weeks
That sounds like a really good idea. I don't really have any incentives and am really rubbish at sticking to healthy eating. I might give that a try though as I really need to lose a few pounds.
Chelseaharvey, don't bin your old clothes, donate them to the poor. I do this as I don't have much $$ to donate to other causes.
I need to lose another stone by November otherwise I'm in trouble. I donated all my "i fit ignome/am baggy on ignone" clothes and have a few bottoms only and really need to get into one jacket and a pair of jeans...and so far, have had a bad week. Am going out saturday night, luckily I don't drink so am going to have an extremely low points lunch and also go for a walk in the morning...and saving a few points today although thats pretty pointless since I was over yesterday by about 17 points :lol: got stuck into the custrad tarts and biscuits and chochlate at work :doh:
