Yesterday marked the second weigh-in for Losing To Win, the weight loss competition I joined on January 5! I didn’t place in one of the top 4 money slots…but I am still so proud to be a loser!
From February 5 to March 5 I lost a total of 6 lbs, bringing me to a Losing To Win total of 15 pounds since January 5, and a grand total of 33 pounds since I joined Weight Watchers (which at this point I am not following at all) on July 20, 2009!
Did you say I deserved a reward? Of course you did! So as not to disappoint, I went and really splurged and treated myself to these! An actual pair of good quality walking/running shoes as opposed to the whatever brand I would by myself before. I went to a running store and had my foot fitted for a shoe that will take me the mile…or at least the 300 miles I plan to walk this year!
Now what I really really want is this:
Not because I am a major runner…but I do want to start tracking my heart rate to make sure I am getting it at the target level…and because I am tracking my miles and that will free me up some to get off the measured parks I am going to.
Maybe I will make that a 100 mile reward….unless someone who loves me gets it for my birthday next month!
This is actually very first time I have rewarded myself for reaching a milestone and treated myself to some fitness gear.
How do you reward yourself when you have reached weight loss or fitness goals?
