Healthy Ways To Reward Yourself As You Lose The Weight
Losing the weight is a great feeling, but you have to keep in mind that it’s a lifestyle change. It may be tempting to indulge again once you drop a few pounds. You won’t be able to break unhealthy habits if you keep letting them sneak back into your life.
That’s why it’s important to stay focused on your goals and set new ones as soon as you reach the old ones. You have to keep your mind on your health and wellness, and how good you feel when you take care of yourself. Remind yourself that there are positive reinforcements available to you that will keep you on track. See healthy ways to reward yourself as you lose the weight.
Treat yourself to a day at the spa where there aren’t any tempting treats to eat. The treat will be you getting a massage or pedicure and feeling relaxed. This is a great way to reduce stress and take your mind off of any cravings you may be having. All spa days require of you is your presence, and then you’re welcome to check out and completely let go of any worries. Tell yourself you’ll return to the spa after you hit your next health goal.
Reflect on your Journey
Make yourself see how far you’ve come by putting the proof right in front of your face. Take advantage of online photo collages to arrange pictures of you before, during and after your weight loss. Ready-made photo templates make it easy to create engaging and meaningful collages. You don’t need to be a professional designer to make something that looks great. Hang it up where you can see it and to remind yourself each day how far you’ve come.
Have A Lazy Weekend
Ask your spouse to take over for a weekend, while you kick back and relax. Sleep in, read a book and go for a walk. Let your family cook dinner for you and watch your favorite movie after you’re done eating. Have a lazy weekend without feeling any guilt. Use this as a time to reflect, relax and de-stress from your hectic schedule. Take the time to journal about how you’re feeling in your new body and ways to help you stay focused in the future.
Buy New Clothes
There’s no better reward than new clothes that fit and are a size or two smaller. Take in how good it feels to try on clothes and feel good about yourself. Buy one or two new items and workout clothes that will motivate you to hit the gym. Be glad that you’re able to shop and find garments that complement your figure. This is an excellent way to enjoy your weight loss and show off your hard work.
It’s easy to get caught up in a loop of good and bad habits. Remind yourself that you want to adopt a new lifestyle and not temporary fixes. These are healthy ways to reward yourself as you lose the weight.
