i have a few things in mind that i figured i would do when i reached goal. one of them being a new wardrobe because everything i have wont fit anymore. The second thing would be my first tattoo happy but i feel that i would like to do more to reward myself and would like some ideas! what do you guys think?

This might sound silly, but nothing, because I have realised I will never reach my goal.

I started losing weight with a number in mind... I passed that and picked another... when I reach that number I will pick a higher number to bulk to, then a lower number to cut back to etc etc.

I think personal rewards for milestones are perfectly valid, but once you get to a certain point you realise there is actually no end goal but simply more steps in the process to get better. Fitter, stronger, leaner, bigger, smaller. This will be a lifelong journey for me.

So I guess you could say my reward for reaching my 'goal' will be a nice comfy hole in the ground. bigsmile

I have milestone rewards for every stone (14lbs) I lose, anything from a new pair of boots to a haircut or facial. It keeps me motivated and has helped break up the 100lbs I had to lose into smaller goals. I do though have a holiday booked next June as that will a year from when I started.

However I agree with Rayman, above, once I reach my goal weight I will be concentrating on other goals such as body fat, this is a lifelong dedication to improving my health and body.
