Almost forgot I had a goal, but I'm almost there...

Thursday, February 09, 2012

I focus so much on the daily things now, just eatting within my calorie range, trying to get at least a couple of servings of fruit and a couple of servings of veggies, etc., that I forgot that I actually did make a weight loss goal when I came back to Sparkpeople about a month ago. Thing is, I've almost reached it, and without really noticing. My goal was to go from 157lbs to 145lbs by Feb. 28th, and right now, I'm at 147. Chances are good that I'm going to make it this time! Might be the first time I've ever actually reached a weight loss goal "on time", lol.

Now the question is, what am I going to do once I reach 145? I'll still want to lose more weight, but I'm not sure what kind of goal to make this time. Just to lose another 6lbs and get to 139, or go for 135? Or even set a much longer term goal in the 120's?

Also, should I reward myself for reaching my goal, even though I did it without really thinking about it? Hmm, might as well :P Now how to reward myself...he he, I've got it! New clothes! My jeans have been kind of hanging off of me as it is.

    WTG on the weight loss.. you definitely deserve a reward. I'd say set a goal that feels comfortable to you that actually makes sense for your height. emoticon
