I just joined WedMD weight loss tracker last week and it's been great to log my food & fitness. I have 125 lbs to lose. My SW 277, GW 150. I'm looking for "rewards" ideas for 25 lb increments. Pedicures, new jeans, etc. Love the community posts. Thanks everyone for your support & ideas. Mary

Remember the Gold is not in the prize it's in the Journey life may not be the Party we expected but while we are here we may as well dance
I like foot massages, new nail polishes, pedicures and hair highlights. For my grand total celebration after I reach goal, I am going to go to Mardi Gras, have absyinth, get topless and have my body painted. I will be almost 49 years old, but I am looking forward to it

Welcome Mary! I love your reward system. It's important on this journey to recognize your successes in some way. I think that's a good idea for me in my journey now too. So, let's see, I think that I will reward myself for maintaining 150 every month with some new article of clothing. So, Feb. 26th, if I earn it, I'll buy a new swimsuit!
Thanks for the inspiration and good luck on your journey! Glad you've joined us.
