Acknowledging Weight Loss Celebrations

As you revisit your goals from week 1, think about what has been achieved in the first 10 weeks and what requires further effort. When you are setting new goals, consider a mix of short and long-term objectives, extending beyond the number on the scale. While numerical goals are practical, acknowledge the broader impact on your health, exercise, confidence, social life, and more. Your weight loss journey is so much more than simply weight loss, so it’s important you shift your focus beyond food and weight, recognising the holistic improvements in your life.

Often, celebrations can involve fancy food or alcohol which may impact your progress. Whilst it is important to ensure you don’t restrict the foods that you enjoy to avoid bingeing, it’s also important to consume them in moderation to avoid weight gain. To avoid the emotional aspect of food which can lead to overconsumption, think of ways to celebrate your successes in ways that don’t involve food and alcohol to keep yourself motivated whilst sustaining your success. 

With that in mind, let’s consider non-food-related celebrations to detach from emotional eating, sustaining your weight loss efforts so you can keep up the excellent work!

1. Get Some New Workout Gear:

Treat yourself to a new set of workout clothes or shoes as a reward for your hard work.

2. Plan a Spa Day:

Schedule a relaxing spa day or a massage to pamper yourself and unwind.

3. Buy Yourself a New Outfit:

Update your wardrobe with a clothing item that makes you feel confident and stylish. Make sure you buy new clothes as you lose weight, rather than waiting until you achieve your weight loss goal, as this will keep you feeling good on your journey!

4. Create a Vision Board:

Visualising your goals can help them feel more achievable and realistic. Get creative and enjoy an evening of crafts and goal setting for the future you. 

5. Plan an Activity:

Consider an activity that was previously out of reach and make plans to engage in it. Your weight loss journey not only enhances your health but also unlocks opportunities for activities that were once inaccessible.

6. Organise a Weekend Away:

For a bigger milestone, consider treating yourself to a weekend away to recharge after your hard work and celebrate your success!
