I don't think you need to reward yourself, but it is good to "give yourself credit." I find that I often start to beat myself up a lot over all the ways I have "failed," which just makes me discouraged and want to give up. However, making sure that I take note of the positive things I have done helps keep me motivated.

I like having a tangible reward. The thought of just completing something was never enough reward for me.

Maybe you feel a job well done. Is reward enough for you. For you that may be the right answer

You don't but it is fun. Just not a food reward. It does not have to be a big reward either. You are working hard!

That depends on "what floats your boat"! emoticon

Some of us thrive better when we have a tangible reward...
Others of us are just as celebratory when we simply *know* we accomplished what we wanted.

Personally, I'm in the latter group. A physical reward doesn't motivate me, simply because I'm fortunate enough to be able to get *things* when I need or want them, and I actually am trying not to collect *things* at this stage of my Life. I've been this way my whole Life. Awards, Points, mementos... have never done much for me. For all my years of travels, vacations, etc... I have about 4 little pieces of jewelry as mementos, one or two cups, a small wooden box and two little ceramic angels from Germany---and at least two of those were gifts to me!

Do whatever makes your heart happy!!

I agree...a physical award helps.

Create a physical means to celebrate to cement it into your mind: a pat on the back, a victory dance, a "great job" into your reflection...make it a meaningful ritual to you, no matter how simple.

In 3 days I will have completed a 30 day challenge to walk for at least 5 times in a week. I wonder, is it really necessary for me to come up with a reward for myself for completing this challenge, or is just acknowledging "yay, I did this" enough?
