Yippee! It’s been a while, but I finally got two losses in a row 🙂 I was down 1.4lbs today for a new weight of 164.9lbs and a total loss so far of 86.7lbs.
This post will be a bit short and sweet as I won’t have time tonight to write one. But I wanted to talk about my goals – or rather my mini-goals that I have listed on the side. If we recall my last goal was to be at 160lbs by September 25th – the day of my 10K race. Well we all know that was a big ol’bust now don’t we. With all the ups and downs and struggles the last litte while that certainly wasn’t going to happen. Almost two months later and I’m not even close yet either!
So I’ve decided to set a new Mini Goal #4. I know that you shouldn’t do time-specific goals, but I like them and I don’t stress out if I don’t meet them. It just gives me something to strive for. To be a bit more realistic with how my weight loss is going lately I’ve decided on a modest goal: to be in the 150s before xmas 2011. Yup! So that give me 5 weeks to lose at least 5lbs. That’s realistic isn’t it? That’s what I’m going with so we’ll see. If I meet it, I’ll be sure to post my reward, which I’ll be honest I haven’t decided upon yet. But as always it will be non-food related. Some of my past goal rewards have been: Lady Gaga concert tickets and cute bras. I’ll have to think of something equally fun for this goal.
As in most things in my life I work best when I have a specific goal I’m working towards – which is why the races are so good for me! I also have an exercise goal in mind…but I’ll post that on its own.
Does anyone else have any goals they would like to meet before the end of the year? Official or unofficial? Scale or non-scale? Exercise?
