Wow! Your goals are very specific. I"ve written down a few of mine. I've very visual. I would like to post my goals all over my home and office. However, privacy is an issue for me. My kids and husband often question the images that I use. So I have to hide them.

When I started my weight loss journey the goals I set included: -walk every day -do crunches and floor exercises/stretches every day -keep my calories, fiber, protein, sodium etc under maximum of suggested ranges -eat no meat -take time to breath between bites of food to cultivate mindful eating -lose .5 to 2 pounds per week -be able to fit into my 'skinny' jeans
My goals have changes as I have learned the importance of organic, unprocessed food and benefits of nutrient rich choices. Start with goals you can keep. It also really helped me to realize as a person who could be addicted to bad choices that I could replace them with healthy choices. Best of success to you!
Wow! I totally understand your point of view in all of this. I found that blogging as well as keeping a personal journal really helps. The journal is a big help because, I can look back on what I wrote not too long ago, and it either helps me keep focus or reminds me of what I set out to do. Good luck.
I haven't found a good way to set my goals. I've read the book, and I understand the SMART way, but I don't know where or how to write them down so they will be meaningful to me. Do I set a goal for 5 lbs. by a certain date or 20 lbs. by a certain date. I'd love to get some ideas on how others do this.
