Perhaps I have already realized this but if I haven't I do now.....

I know I have mentioned that I don't like goals or rewarding myself because I don't normally get to indulge in my victories.

I realized tonight though, when I know I'm not going to be able to reward myself with small gifts, or that other issues in life will stop others from noticing my accomplishments, or Frankly when I feel alone I will stop trying all together!!! and in fact will make bad food/exercise choices on purpose!!!!

Its as if gaining weight or making bad choices is easier for me to deal with, then not being able to "celebrate" my small victories!!!!

    Not all victories need cost money. As ProudMom2boys just said, take a bubble bath (I have used a couple drops of dish soap when I didn't have any bubble bath) or read a book (do you belong to a library?) Also, consider getting Spark and POST your victories or blog or both. You will find many people will support you in those victories. We may not be able to take you out to a movie, but we can send you goodies, or emoticons to brighten your day.

    Hope you are having a great day. You deserve it!

    It is like when I tell people don't get me anything for my birthday and then they don't - It reinforces that I am not worthwhile. Then I go and overeat out of pity but again that is a way of saying I am not really worth the effort of being rewarded with health or a slimmer body and I am going to prove it to myself. I am not sure if this is what you are thinking but the emotions of self and defeating that self play a big part in my weight.

    I know the reward of health should be big enough but give yourself small victories also. Blog and respond to other blogs to reinforce your value. Stick to this healthy lifestyle because you are worth it. It is hard work but so important.

    Even if you can't "buy" yourself something, do something for yourself and celebrate! For me, a soak in the tub or reading a book is a huge reward because I usually don't take the time to do that. I have been a self-saboteur for a long time and have lost and gained a lot of weight over the years. It is time for us to break that cycle, realize our goals and find a way to reward ourselves, no matter how little it may be. emoticon ~Jodi
