It’s important to celebrate accomplishments – both big and small – on your weight management journey. When you celebrate success, you remind yourself that you are making progress and are capable of reaching your goals. And rewards can also be motivators to keep up your hard work.
Choose rewards unrelated to food that celebrate your health and promote your well-being, and plan them regularly.
- New workout clothes or exercise equipment
- A haircut and style, or manicure or pedicure
- Tickets to a concert
- Personal training session or yoga class
Try it out! Over the next few weeks look for an accomplishment and reward yourself for a job well done. Maybe you didn’t lose weight, but your waist size is an inch smaller or you are now able to slow jog a 5K. Remember, it’s about progress and not perfection. And don’t forget to let your coach know about your success.
