I'm finding it difficult to consider middle goals. After all, I think, I'm only looking at losing about 20 pounds. And I have the best motivation I could have - being able to keep up with my young kids and continue to do so as they grow up.
And yet - it's not enough. The body still pops and creaks at weird times and in odd ways, and while I continue to work within my guidelines, I always think, in the back of my mind, "But really, is it THAT much of a big deal."
I need more accountability and more milestones to move towards, but middle goals tend to be too easily 'forgotten' (especially when the only people checking in are myself and the H, or they deal with spending money), and final goals (running a 5k, learning to ice skate) are in some ways outside of my control. After all, if the knees still don't work that way, they don't work that way.
