Celebrating Weight Loss Without The Calories

I’m looking to celebrate my weight loss milestones with food-free rewards. Image courtesy of pakorn and FreeDigitalPhotos.net.

I forgot to take the chicken out of the freezer last night. We ended up eating out and decided to make a night of it and celebrate my weight loss.

The good news is that I stayed in control and ate healthy. I only used 12 Weight Watchers points, leaving me with a enough points for wine.  The even better news is after the evening’s festivities I started thinking about food-free celebrations.

Most celebrations and get-togethers involve food and alcohol. As I continue my march towards my goal weight, I’m going to hit more milestones, and some not necessarily related to how much I weigh.  Food and alcohol are probably not the smartest ways to celebrate getting healthy.

As part of my weekly goals, I’m rewarding myself with little things if I’m successful, like an e-book or streaming a movie via Netflix. My makeover was a great way to celebrate dropping 25% of my body weight. But what happens when I hit other milestones?

So I started writing down rewards for major successes on my weight loss journey.
