Changing my goals

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I changed my goals to a more attainable goal to start with. Right now, at 5'4" and weighing 203 lbs, I am officially obese. My new goal is to become overweight. To do that I have to hit less than 174 lbs. So...170 is my target for now :) In order to keep my head in the game, I am going to set up a reward system for every ten pounds I lose.

Hit 190 lbs....getting a pedicure and manicure. I know this sounds like a typical thing to most people, but being a single mom with two on the go boys working a full time job, I really don't get to pamper myself too often. I am super excited to get my toes worked over, and my fingernail beds cleaned up :)

Hit 180 lbs...since I am a natural born foodie...I believe this reward will entail signing up for a healthy cooking class! I live near Cleveland and I am sure there are all sorts of cool cooking classes around. I am going to start doing some research now so that I can be ready once I hit that 180 mark!

Hit 170 lbs...first off woo hoo!! and change my goals :) Second thing I am gonna do is buy new tennis shoes and new workout clothes. I am sure my clothes will be a little loose :) And...then jump right back into my zumba workouts full force. With a little weight off, I am sure that my knees won't bother me as much. I miss it so much and am just itching to go back. I can't wait to feel the energy of the class again!

So...those are the new goals, and new rewards for hitting those goals :)

    It's a great idea to set goals and rewards for yourself. I am impulsive and will just buy what I want so that won't work for me. LOL

    But hubby and I decided to take a beach vacation when we reach 100+ pounds gone! I am aiming for February 2014.

    Look forward to you reaching your goals. You CAN and WILL do it!!

    I think your goals and rewards are awesome! It is important to take care of yourself while doing something as lifechanging as weightloss. You are learning a new lifestyle and change is stressful so reward yourself well! You deserve it!

    If the rewards will help to motivate you, go for it! Whatever works! Glad you found a place that has some healthy cooking classes. That sounds like fun actually!

    Just found out that the Mustard Seed Market in Akron holds healthy cooking classes and lectures on women's nutrition. Sounds like I found my place for my 180 reward :)
