From birthdays to job promotions and every celebratory moment in between, there seems to be a trend that all these milestones have a food element associated with them. While reaching milestones in your weight loss journey should be celebrated, part of this journey includes figuring out other ways to reward yourself outside of food. Here are 5 ways to reward yourself to put an extra pep in your step and continue to motivate yourself toward weight loss goals:
1. Revitalize your wardrobe.
There is nothing like buying a new pair of jeans when you’ve dropped a size. Celebrate yourself by buying a new article of clothing or have an outfit altered for every 10lbs dropped. You can also make room in your closet by donating clothes that are overly baggy.
2. Get your hair styled.
Whether that means getting a haircut or a blowout, we’re all about it! A new haircut or style helps you feel refreshed and can add a boost in confidence about your overall appearance.
3. Pamper yourself.
A massage or a manicure/pedicure are just two ways that you can take an extended amount of time to devote to yourself
4. Plan a field trip for yourself.
Plan a field trip for yourself. Your field trip can take any form. Take a walk along a body of water, go window-shopping at your favorite stores or visit a museum.
5. Join a Club.
Find some like-minded individuals who want to celebrate being healthier too. Join a walking club, meetup or even exercise your mind by joining a book club. You’ll have fun and it will keep you inspired!
