Weight Goal

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

I would like to drop eight pounds by the end of April. That's less than a pound a week, which seems realistic. Losing just 4 pounds would put me at a previously achieved weight which I would also consider a worthy goal.
They say it's a good idea to write down your goals. That is one that I have.
Another is increasing (slowly) the distance I run during my exercise time. This week I'm at roughly 1.5 miles while walking the remainder of my 45-60 minutes workout.
My hubby, mrthndave, has been a great support and inspiration. Thanks, Babe! And Sparkpeople has been a great guide and tool.
Have you experienced success when goals are written out?

    Great job!

I'm finding that this time around, I'm more successful because I'm setting small, detailed goals and rewarding myself! It is nice when there is something to look forward to every 5 pounds rather than just 75 pounds from now!

I'm also setting my goals and giving myself more time to work on them. In the past, I may have set a goal to track food, drink more water, exercise more and lose 10 pounds all in one month. Now, I'm taking on only one, new goal a month. I'm not moving on to the next until I've created a real habit of the previous goal!

I make monthly, weekly and sometimes daily goals. It guides me and helps me to stay focused.
