Weight Loss Rewards

Reward yourself for reaching each weight loss milestone with any of the following weight loss rewards for extra motivation. Set small goals that you can reach relatively quickly to keep yourself motivated. 

Weight Loss Rewards

When you are trying to lose weight, it is very motivating to reward yourself for weight loss or progress. Set yourself milestones to reach during your weight loss journey and reward yourself for reaching each milestone. A good reward for weight loss should not be food. It is important to change the mindset where food is associated with rewarding yourself. Also, you don’t want to gain back the weight you lost.

Weight loss is not always something you can control, so I prefer to reward myself for things that I have control over. For example, if I go without sugar for 21 days, then I will treat myself to a massage. If I workout each day for 7 days then I get a new workout outfit. These are the nonfood weight loss rewards that I chose for myself, but you need to choose ones that will motivate you.

Use the following printable to set your weight loss goals and the reward you are going to give yourself for reaching each milestone. There is space for 10 milestones, so divide your weight loss goal by 10 to calculate each milestone. Set a reward for reaching each milestone.

Weight Loss Reward Ideas

Here are 101 weight loss reward ideas.

Any Big Reward (such as a vacation)

If you want to save for a big reward such as a vacation, you can reward yourself with a specific amount of money for every pound you lose. How much should you give yourself? Check to see how much your big reward will cost and divide it by the number of pounds you want to lose. Each time you lose a pound, you put that amount in a savings account or a piggy bank until you reach your goal weight. When you reach your goal weight, you will have enough to buy whatever you planned to reward yourself with.
