I decided today that if I reach my goal weight of 155-160 by next summer, I'm going to get myself a nice road bike to complement my mountain and hybrid bikes. I broached this with my wife. The conversation went as follows:
Me: Next summer, if I get my weight down, I'm going to reward myself with a new road bike.
Wife: How much do they cost?
Me: Two to three thousand.
Wife: I want a family trip to Disneyland then.
Me: What??? We just had a family trip to Disneyland in January.
Wife: You just got a new bike too. I want it at the Disneyland Hotel.
Me: Deal and we can go to Disneyland first.
I'm still going to work for my carrot.
How many of you have set something special to reward yourself for your hard work at losing weight?
Personally, the way I'm doing it will save much more than a bike costs by not eating at fast food joints, restaurants, etc.
