How to reward your weight-loss efforts...without ruining your diet

How to reward your weight-loss efforts...without ruining your diet

For most women, losing weight isn't just an ideal, it's a chore. That's why it's so important to keep yourself motivated over the course of your weight-loss plan and regular fitness routine. One of the best ways to do this is by rewarding yourself every time you achieve one of your goals.

"An incentive program that provides frequent positive feedback can be very effective at changing behavior," Dr. Kevin Volpp, director of the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics Center for Health Incentives, told ABC News.

One of the problems with this approach is that many women tend to reward themselves with the thing dieters crave most: food. And not just any food - rich, indulgent, sexy foods, like chocolate truffle cake and hot fudge sundays. After all, you've earned it, right?

Perhaps, but giving yourself such rewards only sets you back further from your ultimate goal. That's why rewarding yourself with something that isn't food-related is a better option.

Consider treating yourself to a new outfit or accessory instead, like a pair of shoes. A book you've been dying to read or a fancy kitchen gadget are also good choices. And on those occasions where you've really met your milestones, treat yourself to a rejuvenating spa treatment that will leave you feeling relaxed and underscore your ultimate goal: achieving a healthy body that you can feel good about.

It really is with regards to the driving, sillies. Back again while in the day, drivers realized it was dangerous. The modern drivers feel they cannot get hurt and bump about accordingly. Thank Senna and Schumi for that. They're incorrect. It's nevertheless incredibly dangerous, and they should avoid contact and drive decently. Fangio is nonetheless the greatest champion for the reason that he came by means of it alive, and a gentleman that no-one had a undesirable word for. Prior to his death, Senna was universally hated in the paddock. I've been in two races with fatalities and safety cannot be stressed also substantially. Watch Senna the movie and Sir Jackie's points are spot on. Men like Fangio and Moss experienced true courage.
