I know what it's like to look at a huge number. Why not try to hit a smaller number first. Set yourself a goal of about 15-20 pounds. After that's reached, make another. When you look at a larger number, it can seem intimidating and kinda like a lost cause. Don't set yourself up for failure by doing that.
Also, give yourself small rewards for hitting those goals. Find exercises, that may not quite seem like exercises to others and work it honey! You can do anything you want if you really want it. Even so, when you want something, obstacles get in the way that make it easy to set aside your goal. Do your best to stay focused by promising yourself a dress. Look in a magazine and find a lady in a dress that you'd like. Then rip her head off and tape yours on to it.
That's your goal! A dress like that or similar and WHAM-O! Instant goal! LOL You can do it an I cheering you on! Good luck.
I joined spark people before and never managed to stick to it. When I joined I had about 50-60 lbs I wanted to lose. Now I have over 100 to lose and I'm feeling overwhelmed. I know I need to lose it but knowing that I have such a large goal is daunting. Anyone out there have any tips on how to stay motivated on such a long jouney. I set a goal weight of 125 (believe it or not I ued to be there) and a goal date of Sept. 21, 2012. Oh boy I would love a fast forward button lol!
