Personal Rewards



Recommended Posts

My birthday is next month, and I had told myself and my hubby that if I did good from now until the 8th, I was going to reward myself with some "good" food. Well, I have not done good so I've grounded myself and said stick to the same foods.

When I started this topic earlier (then my computer lost what I had typed) I realized that I don't need to reward myself with food. After all, I got obese by comforting myself with food. That is like telling an addict "if you stay clean and sober a year, I'll give you some heroin." Well, I've decided instead, I'm going to get a piercing. I'm getting it this weekend because my hubby gets paid and the Tattoo studio is having a sale this month.

What kind of rewards do you give yourself?

That would scare the bejesus out of me. I'm terrified of heights. Maybe I should tell my husband that the piercing is for reaching onderland. Then I could get a bday present on top. lol I'm sure going to try

Try you never know lol. I'm terrified of heights too but I did it once when I was in my early teens so I figured I'd try it again

Clothes, jewelry, a night out dancing, a concert, tattoos, depends on what you enjoy.

I haven’t had my surgery yet, but we enjoy horses. So my rewards will most likely be new things for my horses, rodeo dates, or maybe hubby will trail ride with me as a reward. We shall see 😊

My hubby and I go get new tattoos every year during tax time. I love needles and ink. I told him last night I had an idea for a tattoo that I want other than to finish filling in my right arm for my sleeve.

I was going to bungee jump once, but the person I was with chickened out. Now, I don't think I would have the cajones to do it.

I rewarded myself with 3 helix piercings last week for losing 95lbs. I have no idea what I'm going to do when I hit 100 :)

I was wanting a daith so bad and my septum. I have pierced my septum twice myself but took it out for surgery. I'm getting a dermal this weekend. But as I mentioned earlier, I think I'm going to sweet talk the hubs into feeling its a reward for losing 50 then on the 8th I'll get a present too. LOL i'm usually not selfish. But what the hey

I’ve bought lots of clothing. Several expensive handbags. One expensive watch, but my watch I want for goal weight I am waiting to get.

Last week I got my hair colored and cut.

I bought a few new jackets and coats, some new cute leather booties too.

The clothing is necessary. Ive tried goodwill but ours is 5-8 bucks a piece and I’m not paying that for used clothing from wal mart and old navy when I can get new stuff from there cheaper. I’d rather pay 12 bucks for something new but that’s me.

I am planning a vacation in March, and I should be at my first major goal by then.

I’m only 2 weeks out from surgery - but once I get low enough I want to go horseback riding. I haven’t been in 30 years because I’ve been too heavy (poor horse!). One of my goals is to be able to ride again!!

And if I weren't in Ohio I would be there too. Looking to get down to Appaloisa weight from a Morgan. Late Hubby used to tease me, said I was the only person he ever knew that gripped Merry-go-round horses with her knees! Told him it all depends on where you start in life, used to ride my uncle's horses, I had a life long before I married him, never lived in a vacuum.🐎

I got my piercing yesterday and I LOVE IT. I was even telling my piercer that I felt I deserved it and that I had lost over 50 pounds. I think my next reward will be some new clothes. I think I'll wait until I reach my goal weight though. It will be nice to wear jeans comfortably again.

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢
