I grew up celebrating anything and everything with food and drink! I am sure many of you can relate to this. And here I go again. I start the year off right, jump back into spark, lose a pound first week and 2 more the 2nd then gain 2 pounds the 3rd week.. why?? Because I ate bad stuff because I was celebrating losing weight!
does that sound just as stupid to you as it does to me?
I can see you all shaking your heads yes yes yes!
so I need to learn new celebrations.
My issue is that I have not yet found a celebration as readily available or more satisfying as food,
So I need some thoughts - how do you celebrate losing pounds?
Goals I have set in past
a special snack
a manicure - earned and never collected, not any of the several dozen times I earned one
a massage - same as the manicure.
new jewelry - I have mine, some of my mother's and some of my grandmothers'. I don't NEED anything and what I want is too expensive
movie out - haven't tried this but is hard for me cause my DH, wonderful man as he is, doesn't like the movies, but he will take me out to eat!!
exercise - really?? I can't seem to turn this into a reward. I do it because I need to.
at 60, there isn't a lot I need or, for that matter even want.
I need HELP. Please pile on the suggestions.
