Weight-Loss Rewards

Along with personal challenges, another way that I have motivated myself throughout my weight-loss journey is through a reward system. For every 5 pounds lost, I give myself a reward!

At the beginning of my weight-loss journey: 268 lbs.

1st Reward - 4/1/11 - New Book - 260 lbs.

2nd Reward - 5/15/11 - New Book - 254 lbs.
3rd Reward - 5/25/11 - New Top - 249.3 lbs.

4th Reward - 8/2/11 - New Top - 244.8 lbs.

5th Reward - 8/30/11 - New Necklace - 239 lbs.

6th Reward - 4/5/12 - New Book - 234.6 lbs.

7th Reward - 2/14/13 - Yoga Mat - 230 lbs.
Weight loss rewards on hold! Found out I'm pregnant on May 15, 2015. Will resume working toward losing weight post-baby :)
