  1. I’ve always struggled with trying to decide on what type of reward to give myself upon hitting goals and milestones. Thank you so much for putting this awesome list together and sharing! One that I was doing for my weight loss journey, prior to becoming pregnant, was the following:

    I have 3 small vases, one has the lbs that I still want to lose (represented as marbles), one has the lbs that I’ve lost (where I move the marbles to) and the third is one that I’m filling up with fun colored flowers for every 5 lbs I lose. Once I reach my healthy weight range then I’ll have a fun little vase filled up with beautiful flowers as a consistent reminder of the work I put into getting where I needed to be.

    I’m hoping to bring this back after I have my baby. 🙂
