:D Not a reward really but, a GREAT motivator... We just booked a flight to Las Vegas in March! We have a friend getting married there. Yep, at the Church of Elvis. We're going to be flying in and staying with other friends. 4 days of wild parties!! Well, at least as wild as old people like us get. :D :D :D I have a few out fits that I want to fit into. So... the diet starts NOW!

I have allready had to buy a new wardrobe, and even that is starting to get a bit large on me. Fortunately it is really cheap and can be thrown away (from LIDL Kyles).

I canot wear the suits I used to (they fall off), but I can wear the ones I had bespoke 20 years ago, cost a fortune, and are as smart as ever. So that is something of a reward.

But the best reward is there is a stong possibility that I will not loose a limb or go blind before I die or at least get a lot older than I intend to.

Top that.

Hey Darkstream, I admire people who can be intrinsically motivated, I am just a "material girl" at the end of the day, and need something physical to motivate myself with! I have never been to Lidl, I think we have one nearby I might need to go and investigate!!!

It sounds like you are all off to a good start. I have one suggestion.
If you are like me, you will eat every morsel of food given to you in a restaurant, even if it's way too much food. The way I deal with it, is I ask the server for a take home box before I even start eating. I put half of the food into the box, and enjoy the other half. It helps a lot, and hibby or i have a good lunch the next day, (or sometimes we split it).

Good luck to all of you. :)
