I've decided once I get to my goal weight I am going to buy myself a diamond ring.

My husband couldn't afford an engagement ring when he proposed and gave me his grandmothers ring instead. Although I love the ring it doesn't fit on with my wedding band and its not your traditional engagement ring.

He is always saying he wants to get me a diamond, but I think this way I will have earnt it!! hehe

nice one! i'm feeling a bit rut-ish at the moment. need to get back on the horse (or the bike, really!) i'm doing exercise now, but my eating habits have dropped off really badly, my man's, too, just out of laziness, it's really crap :(

oh well. my next reward, when I get to 120 (though i need new scales, because i think mine are way off) will be something like... a massage, i think, because I really, really need it - maybe it'll push me to get there faster.

Yep I agree - fantastic idea!

Everyones rewards sound great, too :D

I create really really reachable goals for myself, so I feel like im completeing something all the time.

First Goal - 79.9kg
Second Goal - 78.7kg
Third Goal - 75.0kg
Fourth Goal - 72.0kg
Fifth Goal - 69.9kg
Sixth Goal - 68.0kg
Seventh Goal - 65.0kg

My Mum loves to take me shopping and it's not usually until I've overcome one of these hurdles that I feel like going clothes shopping, so that's usually my reward. Just the whole day once I've reached it, I feel wonderful. It's the best reward. The clothes and photographs just enhance and express it!

i set myself a mini-goal this week to lose more than the .2kg i've been losing for what seems like forever - and my reward is a manicure :)

i think i'm going to mainly concentrate on rewards that are beauty/clothes based because they fit in nicely with feeling better about myself as i move towards my ultimate goal weight and i'd like to go back to taking more interest in my grooming.

Not sure yet, waiting until I've lost all my excess weight, which will take a while. Mum offered to fork out the dollars and get it done over the months so once I've lost the weight I'm also hair-free, but I'd be more comfortable doing it once I'm thin, plus it would feel like a big reward then :-)

I'm gonna do the looking around and booking appointments then. There is a cosmetic surgeon in Subiaco I was thinking of making an appointment with down the track, because I'm not too sure about the laser hair removal clinics popping up around the place.

Oh, haha I just realised you could have meant where as in where on my body :P

Legs
Bikini
Arms
Under-arms
I have this annoying upper-lip hair but I don't know if its thick enough for laser, but my skin is pretty pale.

Annnd if I can find an eyebrow shape I'm perfectly happy with, then I'd get that done, too.

Yeah, I would love to get laser hair removal. I was fortunate to be born with very little body hair (I don't need to shave my legs! Booyah!) but being of Asian Origin means that even the little tiny regrowths on my armpits is visible from a mile away. Gross. I also hate shaving, waxing and grooming in general, getting laser hair removal would mean not having to do any of that! Yay!! I think I'll make that my reward for running a full marathon!
