Clearly, I'm not going to lose 20 pounds in less than 2 months from now. Nov 22 (or something like that) was my goal I set in Jan. to reach 157.
I finally updated my goal date in SP for weight loss. I don't know why I put it off or why changing that date bothers me so much. I guess it is because it is a black-and-white reminder that I haven't done all that I could. While I'm completely content with my progress, I know I could have done better even if I don't think I *should* have done better.
The awesome part of it is that my calorie range is now back to something much more manageable. While I diligently use SP to track all exercise and food, I don't rely on SP to set my calorie range because the SP calorie range hasn't worked for me in a while based on my exercise habits.
But now I wonder if part of the reason the calorie range hasn't been working is tied to that goal date.
Lesson - I need to revisit the goal date more often and not be too proud to change it.
Action - I've set a reminder on my calendar to check and update the date at the end of the year or sooner if I don't stay on track with my weight-loss.
