So today and for the year of 2015, I am going to try something new. I am going to try to go slow. I am going to try to slowdown and make SMALL goals and give myself plenty of time to reach those goals and then to maintain that weight until the next SMALL goal window begins. For instants, I figure if I take all of January and February to lose 10 pounds and I do that 6 times through out the year by the end of the year I will have lost 60 pounds. So the long term goal is 60 pounds but I am not going to look at that long term goal because it is too overwhelming. It seems too hard and to far off to achieve. I feel like in a two month period I can lose 10 lbs. It breaks down to 5 lbs a month that is 1.25 lbs a week. I can do that. I will blog each week as I am able with my journey. Won't you come with me along my journey?

Fitness Minutes: 3,936

My Goals:
My current weight is 195. My short term goal is to lose 10 lbs. in 2 month from January to February 2015. Then I will begin again for the next 2 months. After doing that 6 times for 12 months throughout the year of 2015 I should lose 60 lbs.

First 10 lbs
Reward: A Movie Night with my daughters

Second 10 lbs
Reward: A day with the boys (son, sons-in-law)

Third 10 lbs
Reward: A Date w/Husband

Forth 10 lbs
Reward: A trip to the zoo with Grandbabies

Fifth 10 lbs
Reward: A New Journal

Sixth 10 lbs
An entirely NEW outfit NOT from Goodwill but from a real store that sells brand new items.

For each week I do everything I am supposed to do I will get call my friend Tonya, because I feel like I should get a reward for being consistent even if I am not losing weight.

    Yes, Sparkfriend cheerleaders!!! I'm watching you. emoticon

    As far as my goals for the year go, I have only exercised once and organizing is hit and miss. I am staying in calorie range and reading my Bible. How is your year going so far?

    I'm glad you're back. My healthy journey is plodding on. I haven't lost weight, and still struggle to eat healthy. Some days are better than others. I will get there though. emoticon

    I have a dashound (weiner dog) also. I just haven't put him on SP yet. I got him 3 months ago. I am the third one to get this dog. He is really fun to play with. Max and Milo play all day. Fun to watch. Hope your Christmas is full of joy this season. emoticon

    George,
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts today in my blog. It is a journey, not just losing weight. May the journey be a good one for you also.

    I'm glad you're back. I was beginning to wonder if you were on some fabulous trip or something. My daughter and I are doing well. She is a Sparkmember now. She works at a dog kennel, and part of her job is walking dogs so she gets exercise on the days she works. I hope you are having a great summer. emoticon
