I think many people have a food=reward mindset, most likely carried over from childhood. I remember going to Friendly's to celebrate after a chorus concert or dance recital, getting an ice cream sundae for a good report card, going out to dinner after good news at a parent teacher conference. I was a great student- maybe that's why I was so chubby as a kid!
I need to work on my perception of food. Food isn't necessary to have a good time, it is necessary to live. Filling my body with junk is only going to reduce my lifespan thus reducing the time I have to enjoy! I have to think of other ways to reward myself. I've started a wishlist on Amazon so I can choose things as I reach my weight loss and healthy living goals.
How do you reward yourself for a job well done?
