I haven't made any plans yet. Certainly new clothes would be a necessity, but I don't know. Considering the OP, it reminded me of this: http://www.vixenpinupphotography.com/

I may do something like that and give it to hubby for his birthday, presuming that I hit my goal by his next birthday. I think that's a very cool idea.

A perfect pair of designer jeans -- ones that are FAR too nice for me to let myself go again. Current/Elliot or Adriano Goldschmied, maybe? My butt is my favourite part of my in-shape body (truly). So $200-$300ish jeans for me!

Or, clothing shopping at a place down in the States with a lot of outlet malls (something we don't really have here). That way I can have fun and maybe get the designer jeans for a lot less :).

It surprises me that there are not more responses including a celebration meal or party. I have such a long way to go that I have not thought about what I will do to celebrate my accomplishment of actually getting there just yet.

I will eat a REAL hamburger and spicy fries.
Go to the gym.
Buy a whole new wardrobe
Have four tats reworked because I was young, stupid and had friends that could build their own homemade tattoo guns and I had available skin.

I WILL go out somewhere and be dressed in something that makes me feel sexy, not frumpy.

DH and I are renewing our vows in April for our 10 year anniversary. I'm already about 20 pounds less than I was when we got married, but still have about 15 - 20 to go to goal. I think I'll be there by sometime in January, so that gives me a few months to find an amazing gown for the ceremony.

depending on how i look once i get down to my ideal weight... i am considering having a "mommy make over" done. its a tummy tuck, some lipo and a breast lift. i've had 3 wonderful kids, but 2 were by c-section, so i know my tummy isnt going to be flat, not that it was before them lol, but it will be a great treat to myself. but im hoping i wont need it :) if i do, i'll save and make plans to get it done :)

I've made a similar observation! For me, I am specifically trying to think of ways to "celebrate" or "reward" that do NOT involve food since using food for emotional reasons instead of fuel is what got me in trouble in the first place.

I've been holding stable at 75 lost for several months now, I've run my first and second ever half marathons, and I turned 40, so I'm also thinking of some kind of tattoo to mark the occasion.

Since I gained 25 lbs over the last year and a half (after having lost 60 lbs) I have lots of clothes to fit back into... but I never got to my goal. I was once about 6 lbs off but never at goal. so I have the same "reward" as I had then. I want to buy myself a really good leather jacket, and not even consider the cost because no matter how much I spend, it will be excellent quality and i'll have it for years because I will NEVER gain the weight again.

The reason I don't think of eating one thing or another for celebration when I reach my goal is... Well, I already basically eat whatever I want :)))) No need to ban any foods!

But anyway, I can't donate all my clothes because half of them still belong to the thin me and the other half are constantly shrinking so that even after losing weight I'm still barely getting in them! Haha. Still I plan on buying tons of clothes I normally wouldn't pay for because I wouldn't be satisfied with how they look on me, but I will be at my goal! Can't wait!!!!
