Rewards for Your Weight Loss Journey

When we think about celebrating our successes in life, often we choose to go out to dinner, have a drink, throw a party, or buy a special treat. When dieting, this is counterintuitive.

Still, you deserve a reward for all your hard work, so we have come up with ideas that don’t revolve around food.

Remember, what makes YOU feel rewarded might be different from someone else, so once you have a few ideas, be sure to make your own list and keep it on the fridge at home. 

You can set specific rewards for certain goals and save the best for those amazing milestones!
