Weight loss...do you have a reward?

Just recently joined WW and keep thinking maybe I should reward myself to stay motivated. Like give myself a certain amount of $ each time I lose to put towards new clothes when I meet my goal.

Has anyone else done something similar? I'm trying to stay away from rewarding myself with food!

I have set up a reward system for every two pounds (i only want to lose 10 right now). These include pedicures, a new work-out top or shorts...basically little things that I don't normally get or do. For the final weight it will be a new bathing suit.

I do not have any real reward. I might have some cheese or a drink night.

Not really, but great idea! Maybe $5 per pound to buy new clothes. I could pay myself each week. Hummmm, definitely will think about this!

My ultimate goal would be a new baby I think I want one more, but at my current weight there's no way. Hoping to lose about 75, then think about trying for #3.

A new baby was my goal last time. Now that I got the last one, I am at a loss what to wish for.

Sorry OP for going off topic...

Kimmie- do you feel that you have to start over now? DH's opinion is that I should get to my goal, and enjoy it for about a year before we try. That seems far away. It will take at least a year to loss the weight, so 2 years from now to start trying I kind of want to get them all out and over with, so I'm not changing diapers for the next 5 years lol.
