There are no shortcuts to any place worth going. ~Beverly Sills

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible. ~T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom, 1926

I realized I never posted any real goals of what I want from this journey. So I have thought long and hard about this and so far this is what I got:

Weight Loss Goals:
• To get in the 200’s
• To get in the 100’s
• To lose 100 pounds by 8/1/2011
• Get my BMI out of the OBESE range
• Get my BMI in the healthy range
Exercise Goals:
• To run a whole lap at the track without stopping
• To be able to run an entire mile without stopping
• To be able to run a mile in less than 10 min
• To run in a 5K
• To run a ½ marathon: Preferably the “Train to end Stroke” in honor of my dad
Other Goals:
• To be able to sleep without snoring.
• To get rid of my double chin.
• To fit into my mini-goal dress (brown dress, size 20W).
• To fit into my high school graduation dress (red, size 18).
• To be able to shop at normal people stores like Target, Old Navy and not have to get “old lady” clothes.
• To be too small for Lane Bryant Clothes.

    Excellent goals! Take them one step at a time, and definitely reward yourself for progress. Don't delay gratification for too long, because it's easier to get discouraged that way.

    You have some clear goals. The next step is a bit trickier, but you need to write those short term goals and add in some rewards for yourself as well. Everyone gets paid at their work and that is what you deserve for this important work. Many people find the short term goals to be harder to write, you can find a bit of help on the section on your spark points page labeled "other goals." It can help you to see several medium range and short term goals and that might make this job easier.

    I wish you the best of success with this.
