Mini Goal #5

Thursday, January 31, 2013

After I hit 200 (from my high of 230, a 30 pound loss), I wrote down some mini goals to keep me going because it's so much easier to hit 5-10 pound goal than it is to keep on trudging toward a big, far away goal. I wrote them up on the sidebar of my Spark Page and have hit 4 of them so far.

This morning, despite having eaten more than I should have last night (by a couple hundred calories), I am .2 away from hitting mini goal #5. It certainly was a surprise since 2 days ago, I also had way too much salt (I had Panera) and it made me go back up most of that last pound I had lost.

It's both exciting and scary to be so close to a little goal (or any goal for that matter). It's exciting to finally be as skinny as my husband has ever seen me. It's scary that I may not hit the goal as soon as I'd like. I do weigh every day, I just don't write it down until Tuesday, so I can possibly hit a goal mid-week.

So here's to hoping that I'll hit mini goal #5 of 175 this week and continue to stay under it!

    I hope that as I continue to catch up with my friend feed I see if you hit that mini goal! I think that mini goals are the way to go, especially as it gets more difficult to take off those final lbs. I like to reward myself for making my fitness minutes each month. I am so excited for you as you clean out your closet, really feel confident, and wow your husband! Has he gotten on board yet?
Have a fabulous weekend! We have the fireplace going full wood here!

    How exciting for you!! I also set small goals on my Wii fit instead of my overall goal. It makes it easier to envision and keeps me motivated. Keep up the great work :)

    I started off at 230, too! That's soooooo awesome! Good on ya for sticking to it. A couple hundred calories here or there isn't going to be bad. In fact, they say rotating your calories can be a good thing so I have no doubts that your body doesn't mind one bit. Keep on track! I started off at 230, too! :D
