This is a good question. I hit my goal a couple months ago, and truth be told I think I rewarded myself all along the journey. Like buying smaller jeans, better makeup, and taking road trips to see friends, etc. basically, jumping back into life again and learning to love myself along the way. So I guess for me the reward has been the journey and self discovery!

I agree, I plan on rewarding myself all along the way, and as you said being able to buy smaller and new clothes is a DEFINITE plus, it also feels wonderful to be able to throw the larger clothes away knowing that you will never need them again! Oh and CONGRATULATIONS on hitting your target! Give me about 8-12 more months and I will be there as well!:D

I love all these ideas! Especially BEING IN PHOTOS with my kids. So they might actually have a photo of me! I've never been in the photos.

Sadly, reaching my goal weight will not make me richer. So most of your great ideas are out of reach for me. It will be its own reward to be able to wear normal clothes, hike, and be active generally. Not be embarrassed about my weight. I probably won't even be able to afford a new wardrobe except bit by bit. But yeah, dancing. Going on rides, everything.

I’m borrowing this idea from someone else but I heard “how to walk in high heels” lessons are being offered so I plan to get me some good [emoji151] and make use of that class!

What a great topic! I have not even thought about what I would do for myself once I reach goal. Well, one thing that is hard for me now is to hike so it just hit me that maybe my hubby and I can go somewhere and hike somewhere high - it gives me inspiration to keep working out also. Hmmmmmm!

Go on a hike with a mink coat?? I like it. lol

I am a cruise junkie, so once I hit my goal weight I plan on going on a cruise and doing a zip line excursion as well as entering myself into several 5k's in my local area. I plan on living life to the fullest and not letting myself get back to the dark place that I was ever again! [emoji4]

That's an awesome goal!!

I think the only thing I would like is perhaps a picture of me with my family in a happy place like the Caribbean. For too may years I have avoided most photo opportunities because how I disliked seeing myself as a heavy person. I felt like a ghost in a way, there but not really. Now that I see everyone else's wish list I'm thinking I might need to set my bar higher [emoji4] I kinda like the Porsche idea but I think it be a bit of a hard sell to the wifey and probably to myself. Almost bought a Maserati a few months ago until I investigated how much routine maintenance cost and decided it was a little too crazy even if I had the money,

I love your goal!!! It's realistic, i'm so glad you feel comfortable taking pictures now.

In my current state (162kg), my belly almost touches the steering wheel when I'm driving. (SEE PIC)

Theres 20mm (0.8 inch) between me and the bottom of the wheel with the seat right back. I well remember a 100mm (or 4 inch) gap when I was down to 131kg in early 2016.

I want that feeling and better. It'd be nice to give the passenger behind me some leg room. :-)

The eventual hernia op next year will help too.

A great NSV to look forward to ...

A really great looking swimming suit, and not being embarrassed to wear it at the beach, pool, etc.

A whole bunch of walk-bys in front of people who would not have noticed me before and non-chalant responses like “what, this old thing??” even though I’m sure I’ll be proud as hell to be wearing a size... (whatever I settle at)

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
