Do you buy yourself/reward yourself somehow for reaching your goals?

I have done this in the past but I find that I'm not very good at this. I usually just buy things when I want them and don't wait for the goal. I should probably put hubby in charge of this. LOL. I would like to get some cute summer clothes but I'd probably buy them whether I reach my goals or not. LMBO.

I do rewards in clothes. I have trouble buying things for myself. I usually tend to go to the store for clothes for me but end up walking out with a bunch for DH and the kids and nothing for me lol. So I found that if I feel like I earned it I will be better. If I get down to 175 (9lbs to lose) I get $150 to spend on anything I want, so it has helped me out.

I don't usually do rewards. Every once in awhile I will reward myself with a nice manicure or pedicure.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I don't usually reward myself either. I have found a really cool reward system on Pinterest though that I though I might try. But usually I just buy what I want when I want it (otherwise I have a tendency to forget about it. )

Here is the reward jar that I thought about doing: Hot Mess Princess | Just Rewards

I also like the Motivational Marbles idea on that site.

I've always planned to, but I typically won't spend money on stuff I don't really need for myself, and if it's something I really need I'm not going to wait until I lose five pounds or whatever.

I really like this idea, but I tend to buy things for myself when I want them rather than waiting to reach my goal. DH doesn't help much either - I told him I want a pedometer, and I was going to reward myself when I get to 149, (7 lbs away), well he went and got one for me anyway! Very nice, but I don't think he knew I was using it as a reward!
I like the cash in the reward jar idea...I might try that.
