Day 910- Spreading Out My Goals


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, May 29, 2014

I've begun to realize that since I began this journey, I got pretty used to 2 lb or more weight losses every week. And when I don't reach those or worse yet had a gain, I began to question myself and my methods. When really fluctuations are normal, as we all know.

So I'm going to set some new weight goals for myself that I think maybe be slightly more reachable based on the events and things I have going in my life the next few months.

This morning I was 181, but I still believe this is some bloat from Memphis, so I think some of that will come off pretty quickly. So here are my following goals:

June 15- 175
July 15- 169
August 15- 164
September 15- 159
October 15- 154
November 15- 149 (I had always hoped to be under 150 for my wedding)

These are 5-6 pound weight losses per month. So a little over a pound a week, which also allows for minor gains, but also bigger weeks. Anyways, if I don't reach these goals, they are just numbers, and it's not a huge deal. But I think rather than focusing so hard on 2 pounds each week, these will allow me a bit more wiggle room for weddings and other events I have.

Love you SparkFriends! Here's my most recent before and after picture by the way.



This dress is of a spandex blend and was stretched to the limit at 275, but I wore it yesterday and it's almost too big. I may need a waist belt!

    This is great. Love your before and after picture. I think that 5/6 pounds a month is a great plan. I have wrote down on my calendar something very similar!

    Lookin great!!! We're weight loss twins!!!

I'm currently 182.8 and I want to get to 150 myself! But i'm feeling when I reach that, I'll want to get down to 140. For me to be within the "healthy weight" range according to my height (I'm 5'2") I should be no more than 136. That weight scares me because I fear I'll be tiny with a big head!! LOL...but who knows?!?!?

I believe you'll get to the weight you desire!! You've worked soooo hard and you're continuing the fight!! I KNOW you can do it!!!

You're emoticon

    Always inspiring, you look beautiful, and more importantly happy! Very wise goals, and as I'm struggling with the scale not budging, despite lots of healthy eating and exercise, it is a timely reminder not to stress, and that going in the right direction is more important.x

Well done x

    Isn't it remarkable how clothes WILL FIT (?) us at the higher weights but be so much more flattering at lower weights?? You look amazing and the scale just talks about weight here on Earth--weigh in on the moon and you are too skinny! LOL

    Bobcat,

You look AMAZING!!! Please be mindful that the closer you get to goal, the harder it is to lose the weight, and it's STUBBORN WEIGHT! You'll get there, I'm sure of that!

Be blessed,
