So I think I've found a way to keep myself sufficiently motivated in my weight loss journey.
We set my wedding dress budget at $300, but then I saw a dress I LOVED for $1000. My wonderful FI being who he is, he says I can have whatever makes me happy. (AW!) I have a hard time swallowing the increase in our budget. I also have a hard time keeping my motivation to eat right and excersize. So here's what I'm doing...
If I can lose 20% of my body weight, or 60 pounds, by the end of 2013 I will reward myself with THE dress. However, having and all or nothing goal seems like a good way to get discouraged (as in, I'll never lose 60 pounds, why bother losing any?) So... for every 6 pounds I lose (aka 10% of the planned 60), I earn 100 dollars toward my dress budget.
Who else has problems staying motivated and how are you motivating yourself?
