25 Non-Food Reward Ideas for Meeting Weight-Loss Goals


My Current Success

This morning, I weighed myself with a body composition scale and discovered that I have lost seven pounds this week. The weight loss resulted from a calorie deficit paired with exercise. Now that I have exceeded my goal, I began to think of non-food reward ideas to boost my motivation.

Currently, I am twenty-six pounds away from my goal weight. In brief, I chose my goal weight to be twenty pounds higher than my original starting weight because I had been severely underweight. In the old days, I would have considered my goal weight to be “fat.”

If you are anything like me, you have difficulty rewarding yourself for a job well done. Below are some non-food reward ideas to help you reward yourself without resorting to an ice cream or candy treat!
