How did you reward yourself for losing weight?

When I get to 250 I am getting my nose repierced. My original piercing fell out while I was on a cruise and it closed up by the time I got home. Once I get under 200, my reward is a new tattoo. And the new clothes along the way don't hurt either ;)

Sounds like you have a plan. Good luck!

I didnt need to reward myself really...the reward was being able to do things that i couldnt do before like clothes shopping, playing sports, and tieing my shoes while being able to breathe! Although, I do spend a bit of money on my new love, beach volleyball! If you guys find an indoor beach volleyball center, try it out. It is soooooo much fun and feels like you're literally on the beach even in the middle of gloomy winter.

Wow. I hope the surgery went well. Did you do all in one go?

Trying a new sport is always fun. I'm going to join my colleagues to play badminton which is very popular here in Malaysia. You are doing great!

Yep, did it all in one go. I’m not gonna lie and say recovery was easy but I was able to go back to work at 2 weeks and as of 3 weeks I’m able to get back to my Peloton rides and a lighter version of my exercise routine. I had about 5 lbs of skin removed over all.

I think it makes sense to do it all in one go and get it over with. This way you don't have to suffer / be in pain three times. I've not reached my goal weight yet so I don't know if I'm gonna need one myself (hopefully not). But I will do it if I have to 😃

I was sleeved 12-22-2021 I am down 61 pounds and only 6 pounds from my goal weight set by my surgeon. I would like to loose another 30-40 pounds to get back to my high school weight. My reward is I got to go back raw vegan again and I have energy like I am a teenager- I am 53. When I get to where I feel good in a swimsuit - I still have fat on my thighs and hips - My hubby and I will be going on vacation somewhere there is a beach. Id like to go to Hawaii.

Starting weight 227
Current weight 166
Surgery date 12-22-2021

New clothes is a lovely reward. 😀 Especially an item that I was not able to (confidently) wear before, like a shorter skirt or a fitted dress.

I totally agree. I've bought new clothes from brands that I've always wanted to get but couldn't and it feels awesome every time I have it on. Well done!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
