Not done yet. New goals.

Friday, February 01, 2013

When I originally picked my goal weight, I chose it based on a few factors, but told myself I'd see how I felt when I got there and would readjust it if need be.

I've been mulling it over for about a week. Now that I'm here, I feel great, my confidence is up, and I'm doing things like buying dresses without trying them on. At my previous weight, that would have been a crazy idea! Anyways, what I'm saying is that I'm happy where I am, but I think that I can still reach a little more. I've made some fitness goals unrelated to weight this year and I think losing a few extra pounds would help me achieve those too. And honestly, at this point it is for vanity purposes. It has never been purely vanity inspired in the past, so I consider this one of my rewards for the previous work I put in. :)

I've rarely been at this current weight in my adult life so I'm not sure exactly what I should set my goal at, so for now I'm going to set it at 138 lbs. That would give me a 50 lb total weight loss. And who doesn't like nice even numbers like that? That is a weight I've NEVER been at in my adult life so I'll be interested to see how I feel then. Like before, I'll readjust up or down once I get there.

Happy Sparking!

    I love nice round numbers...

I'm nowhere near my goal yet, but I think that maybe, when I get there, the way to stay there is for me to set my goal lower and be "working toward" that number forever... just to have something to set my sights on so I don't get comfortable and join the other 95% who regain.

    Stay healthy and keep fit! Maintaining can be sooooo much harder than losing so take the last few pounds slow and steady to reduce the likelihood of gaining them back. :D Happy sparking
