And when the reward is to be for a few pounds lost, a day of good food choices, etc., then a food reward seems to defeat the purpose.
Now, instead of a food reward, I have found 3 ways to reward myself that I enjoy without spending a lot of money (less than $15) and does not involve food.
1. A New Candle
2. A New Book
What other ways can you think of for $15 or less to use as personal rewards for a goal achieved (that does not include food)?
