This morning I was doing Walk Away the Pounds and since I have heard her entire script too many times I started to think about other things. My mind wandered to this blog I read yesterday which reminded me of a blog I wrote a while ago where I wondered if I really could do this. I think I tripped up back then because I didn't set any goals for myself. For the last week goals and goal setting has popped up in so many conversations and so I thought I would take it as a sign and set some. I already have set monthly goals and reward through October with reminders using the spark planner/ calendar but I don't have any long term goals.

So here goes...

If I lose 2 lbs per week I will be at my first goal weight (160) in August, 2011. Now for medium size goals:

1. 1st 10% (26 lbs): I will take out all of my smaller sized clothes from my closet, pretend they are brand new, force my family to sit down, and put on a little fashion show.

2. 2nd 10% (24 lbs): I wil buy new and cute underwear

3. Getting to onederville (17 lbs): I will get together with friends and celebrate!

4. 20 lbs: Buy a mini skirt (which by now will look good) and stilettos (which by now won't hurt as much) and then strut.
5. 20 lbs: I will buy a bathing suit and wear it somewhere public, like the beach!

That is all for now

    Those are great! Just keep focusing on those reward moments and How amazing you look and feel. You can do it and I am so excited for you. I am re-evaluating my rewards and goals too. emoticon

    Great goals!! Setting new goals really helps me keep going too. Actually I bought new underwear (pink! ;-)) last Sunday as a reward for myself :-) You WILL meet your goals. You can do it. I look forward to hearing about your fashion show which sounds so much fun! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
