Great job. I am trying to be consistent in staying active too. This site is helping me tremendously.

Good idea. Also, weight is a goal that we can't actually control that easily. It's dependent on so many other factors that even people who do "all the right things" can fail to be rewarded with a drop on the scale sometimes.

So it can be quite debilitating to use your actual weight as your goal.

I recommend people choose action goals instead - ones based on factors they actually can control. Such as "exercise 30 mins every day" or "stay in calorie range 6/7 days every week".

I have hit the 102 mile mark in my walking miles today since starting 1/17/11, a little less than 3 months ago, however still have not reached my goal of loosing 7 lbs. (My goal is a minimum of 10 mi. weekly) I estimate I am loosing approximately an average of 1 lb. a month. My only benefit so far is that I love the outdoors, love peanut butter, and hope I will have a lower cholesterol count on my next physician's visit. It helps to have more than 1 goal so that you are not totally discouraged if 1 goal is not met.
