As human beings I believe we respond much better to rewards than to punishment.
But to offset this I have developed a cute little reward system of my own as an incentive to stay on the straight and narrow.
For every kg that I lose, I will transfer “$10 x the number of total kg lost” to a separate savings account. For example, when I lose my 7th kg I will transfer $70 to the account.
I figure the first few kg are the easiest and the last the hardest hence the scaled reward system.
Thus, if I lose my target of 14kg I will have earned $1050 for my efforts. And I’m sure I will have saved at least that much from not buying junk food.
Now to decide what to do with my pot-of-gold at the end of the rainbow?
