She Shoots! She Scores!

When I first started this whole process, I tried to come up with some non-food-related rewards for myself. At that time, it was really hard for me to think of anything beyond food - - I guess that is what I had always used for a reward.  I must have really done a lot of things really well to get myself rewarded to this size!

That being said, I decided to make a list of goals and rewards for myself.  I haven't actually gotten around to matching them up at this point....but I will...eventually.  Let's face it - I have a LOT of time to work with prior to hitting my final goal.  I will hopefully be able to set myself up a series of milestones, and rewards for reaching them. At this point I only have my Mission 101 reward identified. I guess I have some more work to do.

Here is what I have come up with so far....

  • being able to wrap a regular bath towel around my body. at this point it takes...well over one.
  • be able to see my wrist bone. it is currently hiding in a safe alcove of blubber.
  • be able to see my clavicles. not sure if they have ever been visible, but a girl can dream.
  • get into a size that starts with a 1. it has been a really, really, really.....really long time.
  • get to the size where I am in the "most" category where "one size fits most" is concerned
  • flappy, slappy, hanging, granny, chicken wing arms are no longer an issue
  • to fit comfortably in a plane seat. I made a rule that I wasn't allowed to fly until I can.
  • be able to use regular stability balls at the gym without popping those things like a balloon. (they have weight limits, you know)
  • not having to pay extra charge for extended sizes (clothing)
  • Blackberry Torch (Mission 101 reward)
  • Skydiving (April 2011) the heavier I am, the more I have to pay - so it is time to evict Remus.
Goal/Reward (they fit both categories...kinda)
  • climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge. counts as both because I would obviously be on vacation in Australia to be able to do this.
  • do the 12km hike in Banff. I would be on vacation in this glorious place (see picture) in order to be able to do it. I live in Minnesota, and have never been to Canada. What is that about? 
if you hike 12km, you get to see this

What is a goal or reward you have for yourself?


    1. Joe - It was round trip. Up and over a mountain, and then up and over it to get back. Good times!

    2. I would do that! you should see if you can get a bus together for the Canada Adventure! (doesn't have to be a bus :-) we can all drive whatever we want) That would be fun!! maybe start small like a Hike around St Paul while its still nice out...

    3. Let's go ziplining in Costa Rica too! I'm in for that one and you have to be under a certain number to be allowed to strap into one of those things!

    4. Once we reach 1/1/11, we should set a date for a group trip...adventure? something to work towards....what 5 states are represented in our group?

    5. I live in Calgary and head to Banff for the weekend a couple times a year. It is so gorgeous. Do it!
